    About Washington, DC

    The U.S. capital is a place where a mix of politicians, students, young professionals, and hipsters all peacefully coexist side by side. It is a city of contradictions – the home of the United States’ federal government, for example, despite having no representation in the Senate or Congress itself. World-renowned museums and monuments, authentic international cuisine prepared in the kitchens of first and second-generation immigrants, and the world’s only “spy museum” are just a couple things that make Washington, DC so unique. The District (or simply “DC”), as most locals call it, has a special charm all its own.

    With beautiful tree-lined streets and history around every corner, it is a place where influential people flock and big decisions are made on a regular basis.

    The experience I had in Washington D.C. courtesy of Global Experiences, was one that I will not forget. The experience that we were presented is one that eclipsed my hopes going into the program. The group activities that were planned, the availability of Global Experiences contacts if we needed something, and of course, our internships, were what made this past summer so unforgettable.
