Hands down, going to D.C. was the most beneficial and gratifying choice I made in my college career.
I graduated from UGA December 2013 with a degree in Political Science. I plan on going to law school (hopefully in D.C.) in the next few years. While in the Washington Semester Program, I interned at the American Civil Liberties Union.
Why I went:
I wanted to have the “study abroad” experience and have an experience that would help me get an idea of what life after college is like.
Favorite spot to visit:
Eastern Market on Sundays, and Gravelly Point on a sunny afternoon!
Most memorable day:
Going to the U.S. District Court to report on the Tyndale House Publishers v. Sebelius case hearing. Getting a front row seat to such a publicized, controversial case in the heart of D.C. was pretty cool!
Why I'm glad I went:
The Washington Semester Program helped me grow culturally, professionally, and academically. It influenced my career path, and helped me carve out a path for myself to follow more tangible, long-term goals. Hands down, going to D.C. was the most beneficial and gratifying choice I made in my college career.
