With coming to D.C. for only four months, you do not realize how much stuff you can accumulate. Finals are over, the internship is over, and now it is time to move out! Cleaning out a dorm room seems a lot easier now that I realize how much harder it is to clean a whole house!
We are now officially Washington Program Alums, and are moving on to new internships and adventures in D.C., around the country, and around the world. Here is a quick snapshot for some of us on the program:
Our summer plans, enhanced by our D.C. experiences and networking contacts:
Carlos Rivas to the Chicago Public Schools Office of College and Career Preparation
Michael Kotler to the office of Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL)
Jenny Hou continues with a position at the Federal Communications Commission
Mike Whatley continues working for the ranking member of the House Oversight Committee
Ben Forster moves on to NATO in Belgium
The Washington Program has been a great experience, and we've made lifelong friends. I want to thank Professors Spalding, Haskell and Wolfson on behalf of the new program alumni for showing us a great semester in D.C. I also want to thank Kristen Mallory and the rest of the Off-Campus Study staff for their remote assistance as we continued throughout the semester.
