Some of the new faces traveled from as close as Virginia, others from as far away as China. They had spent hours on applications, choosing internship placements and moving their belongings into their TWC homes. On Thursday, that all came to an end as more than 400 students gathered to kick off The Washington Center’s spring 2015 semester.


After meeting their new roommates and spending a snowy first night in the nation’s capital. Students listened to an overview of their programming, met with their professional-track advisors and learned more about civic engagement projects they will tackle in the next several months.


The program’s recent crop of students come from 30 states, dozens of countries, and range from college sophomores to postgraduate students. Many are making their first trip to Washington, D.C., but all seem anxious to add a semester of experiential learning to their resumes.


Kenneth Brown, a senior from the University of Toldeo, will intern with Teens Run DC this semester and looks forward to learning in a diverse enviornment as he pursues a career in higher education.


“Having such a diverse peer group here is what I'm looking forward to the most. With my roomates being from Boston, Brazil and Mexico I literally live in a diverse and cultured setting every day. We all hope to learn from each other.”
