Tours of the FBI, Pentagon, Secret Service. Lunch at Bullfeathers with wonderful HWS alums. Meetings at the Ripon Society and the U.N. Foundation. Cocktails with four Congressmen.
For three days each January, a select group of students mingle with politicians, alums and friends of the Colleges to learn about the inner workings of life in our nation’s capital. In conjunction with the Office of Career Services, Associate Professor DeWayne Lucas and Professor Iva Deutchman, both of the Political Science Department, select 15 – 20 students to participate in the yearly excursion.
Students attend talks by politicians and alums who work on the Hill, discover what it takes to get a job in the nation’s capital, and discuss the day-to-day routine of D.C. life. Students get to meet alums and tour the Pentagon, the FBI, etc., and visit organizations like the Washington Post, Council on Foundations, the Heritage Foundation, etc. Additionally, students have a unique opportunity to network with alums and learn about internship and job opportunities.
