Why do you love D.C.? D.C. gives a student many different opportunities to learn and grow. From landmarks, to museums and speakers, D.C. is a place for students to flourish.

Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment? My spring semester, I was struggling in one of my classes that I thought could be apart of my major. This caused me to attend the professor’s office hours. He assured me that I would be alright and to just keep pushing. This gave me a huge boost of confidence and made me start attending more office hours in all of my classes.
