Washington Program

Henry Schulz ’22, pictured near the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial along the Tidal Basin

During this past election year, Henry Schulz ’22 felt like he had a front row seat to history. 

With his semester in CMC’s Washington program completed, Schulz was packing up his D.C. apartment, and reflecting on the many memorable moments from fall 2020, culminating in the post-election celebrations in the streets just below his apartment. 

CMC Washington program students

In 1973, students arrived in Washington, D.C. to study government at its epicenter while working full time. It was a contentious period for the country. Richard Nixon was in the White House and the news filled with images of Vietnam and long lines at gas pumps. In the evening, the CMC Washington Program’s first cohort gathered in a rented office to discuss the policies and processes they were witnessing firsthand.

A message from the Office of Off-Campus Study:

Congratulations to the Washington Program and Study Abroad photo content winners. We received so many wonderful entries and it was difficult to select just a few winning entries. Thank you to all the students who submitted photos.

Here's a slide show of the winning entries:

Capitol Building

Six CMC students and one student from Pomona College who will participate in the spring 2016 Washington Program have won prestigious scholarship awards that will make their semester internships in the nation’s capitol that much easier.

The Off-Campus Study Office would like to congratulate the Washington Program photo contest winners for this semester.
