District Connections

Spring 2023 | Various Locations, Times, and Dates

Get ready to explore D.C with District Connections! First-year students are paired with upperclassmen guides who lead them on adventures around the DMV. Last semester, students toured the Capitol, attended the White House Christmas Tree lighting, and even got the chance to get groovy at Capital One’s 2022 Jingle Ball Show! District Connections has a ton of exciting plans for the Spring 2023 semester, so be sure you’re registered for their newsletter, and signed up to volunteer!
