Washington Experience Completes Successful Summer


The University of Alabama Washington Experience program just completed a successful summer. Over 20 undergraduates received political science course credit for their Washington, DC internships and over 40 students who were in Washington over the summer participated in at least one event.

Highlights of the summer included a private meeting with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, meetings with Senator Jeff Sessions and Congresswoman Terri Sewell and a luncheon with Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist. Students also had a chance to attend a number of social functions including an alumni reception hosted by Career Services.

Plans for next summer’s program in 2014 are already underway.
