Washington Term

The six-week spring term Washington Term Program includes three components: academic coursework, experience working in a government office, think tank, or other organization in Washington, and a lecture series. Students spend four days working, and on Fridays, they attend a morning class led by Professor Alexander and afternoon guest lectures by some of the most prominent people in Washington. Wednesday evenings are also set aside for class activities.

Throughout high school, I knew I wanted to work for Congress, and as I decided between schools, I knew that W&L would get me closer to that goal.
