Claire E Woodring
Spending that summer in DC truly changed my life, and I would absolutely go back tomorrow.
I graduated from the University of Alabama in May of 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in English, and in 2014 from Georgia Tech with my Master’s in Public Policy.
Bachelor of Arts in English
Why I went:
I participated in the Oxford-Washington Program in Summer 2011 because I wanted to study abroad and spend time in Washington D.C., while still in college. I found this program to be perfect for what I was looking for, and I worked through the program as a transient student at the University of Georgia. This program was great because I was able to experience Washington D.C., while also exploring potential future opportunities.
Favorite spot to visit:
The Lincoln Memorial. The view is unmatched.
Most memorable day:
My favorite day was really early in the summer. Our program was fairly small, and we all got along well. We got to know each other while we walked the monuments. It was hot and kind of miserable at times, but I have never laughed more in one afternoon.
