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:
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.
