DC Semester Q and A

Kaitlin Marwick Marsh
Fall 2012

Hands down, going to D.C. was the most beneficial and gratifying choice I made in my college career.

Brief bio:

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.

Expected graduation:

December 2013

Degree objective:

Political Science

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.

Where I interned:

American Civil Liberties Union
