Eight students from the Communication Department, led by Professors Sarah Burrows and Dana Janbek, recently traveled to Washington, D.C. The three-day trip was filled with visits to communication companies around the area. When visiting Fleishman-Hillard, students met with the Internship Coordinator Team and learned about everything their internship program has to offer.
Students then travelled on the Metro to take a tour of NPR and then to meet with Gilbert “Gil” Klein, President of the National Press Club. After receiving a tour and buffet lunch, students arrived at the office of Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy III and had the chance to meet with him and his staff. Students met with Morgan Austin, a current student in the Washington Semester Program, for dinner.
The next day, students went to the Newseum and spent time learning about everything news related, visiting the National Geographic Museum afterward.
“I loved going to DC because I [learned] first hand the various jobs available for each company or government agency had to offer and each one presented its own set of challenges and opportunities,” said sophomore video and radio production concentration major Darius Corcoran.
