OCC Students Go To Washington

OCC students interested in how government works spent a long weekend in our nation’s capital.

Members of the Politics Club joined students from the Experiencing American Politics Living Learning Community on a trip to Washington, D.C. In all, 28 students participated in the journey over Columbus Day weekend.

Students visited the Supreme Court, the National Archives, The Newseum, the Smithsonian’s American History Museum, the monuments along the National Mall and the Capitol. The students would like to thank the office of U.S. Senator Kirstin Gillibrand of New York which took the time to provide them with a tour of the Capitol.

The students were escorted to Washington by Political Science Assistant Professor Chris Thuot, along with Cathy Dotterer and Liz Goldschein from OCC’s Office of Residence Life.
