TWC interns from Ohio met with Congresswoman Sutton and two her legislative staff at the Longworth House Office building in Washington, D.C. The students, who attend Furman University, Tiffin University and the University of Mount Union, spoke with the congresswoman and her staff members about policy issues concerning:


Armed Services/Defense

Health Care


Immigration/Border Control


When asked about the visit, Stephanie Olivera from Tiffin University said: “My preparation for today’s dialogue allowed me to become much more familiar with what is going on in government. Even Congresswoman Sutton’s website increased my knowledge regarding her stance on critical issues as well as general knowledge on issues that I was not aware of."


Students who participated in the visit included:


  • Benjamin Hartwell-University of Mount Union
  • Joseph Weber, Jr.-Furman University
  • Stephanie Olivera-Tiffin University

Public Policy Dialogues on Capitol Hill (PPDCH), sponsored by the Verizon Foundation, provide students with the unique opportunity to meet and interact with members of the Senate or House of Representatives representing their state or congressional district. This is one component of The Washington Center's internship program.
