Getting Settled In the District

Last week, I moved into a dorm at The George Washington University which I was able to afford thanks to Dickinson’s Internship Notation Program. I have been working eight to nine hours every day so I have yet to explore the city—I am hoping to visit the monuments and experience the Smithsonian museums during my free time.

The first two weeks have been busy. In my first few days, I was welcomed by the staff and interns and sent on a scavenger hunt of the Capitol (see photos). It took me well over two hours, but I was able to find everything on the list. Since then, we have been in and out of session.

So far, I am loving my experience in DC—the Foggy Bottom Campus of GWU is a great place to live. I can’t wait to experience our nation’s capital to the fullest!
