Have you ever heard professors on campus and perhaps Career Services and your advisers talk about contacting alumni to tap into their connections? The Washington Program is the place where I have seen these contacts be beneficial while in school (aside from the occasional internship, summer and here in DC.) Our alums were able to secure for us exclusive tours at many buildings, to areas that DC tourists are not allowed to see. Orientation week included tours of Politico, the Pentagon, U.S. Capitol Building and the Supreme Court. It was beneficial to see what alums are doing, and how their CMC education (and the Washington Program) gave them the tools, and sometimes the connections to begin high level careers. Reminds me of the CMC motto, Leaders in the Making, and the Washington Program can help you get there.
