D.C.

(Extracurricular Activities and Faith-Based Involvement, Class of 2012) Permanent link   All Posts
Glock Photo I took a multi-day trip to D.C. with a group of Government majors. We sat in on many presentations and took several tours, including the Capital, Senate, House, original Supreme Court, and more. We also went to the DEA and the Intelligence University where I want to go for graduate school. In addition, we went to the State Department and receieved a tour of the reception rooms where Presidents and Secretaries have hosted guests for decades. This room, I learned, contains the original George Washington painting that is depicted on the one dollar bill. I also saw the original Treaty of Paris and stood in the same room that Hillary Clinton gave a speech in just a few hours later.

 

Government is the perfect major for me. I love having the oportunity to take trips like this, and there are not many colleges that afford the same unique opportunities (many of the special tours and presentations require a secret clearance).

 



More about George.
