Over the Fall Break, a group of international students traveled to Washington, D.C. for the chance to experience the sights and sounds of the nation’s capital.
The trip included tours of museums including the Newseum and Air and Space Museum, a visit to the Capitol Building, and free time to explore the exciting Georgetown neighborhood. Students and their chaperones also had the chance to visit the National Gallery of Art and Museum of American History, as well as time to explore the National Mall and Georgetown. The girls, along with chaperones Yifan Xu, Martha Griswold, and Khadija Rahim, had a wonderful time bonding over shared meals and exploring the nation’s capital.
Reflecting on the trip, Dean Griswold said, “Ms. Xu created a great itinerary for our international students to get to know Washington D.C. including some of the wonderful museums and monuments that everyone should see. She also left time for fun exploration throughout the city. It was also just nice for students to have some relaxing time together and to enjoy each other’s company. It was also fun for me to spend time with Ms. Rahim and Ms. Xu!” In all, the long-weekend in Washington proved to be an enjoyable and relaxing break for all of the travelers.
