Spring Semester Highlights

As the IRLS Program concludes another successful semester in Washington, DC, we are highlighting some only-in-Washington activities that students enjoyed this spring:

  • Private evening tour of the US Capitol building with Arizona Representative David Schweikert
  • Gettysburg trip led by the McCain Institute’s General (ret.) Ben Freakley elaborating on the difficult choices made by leaders in war
  • Career-talk lunch with two former ambassadors exploring careers in the Foreign Service
  • Visits to the Dirksen Senate Office Building, the State Department, and other Washington, DC landmarks
  • Discussion with a congressional staffer on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about legislative work on the Hill
We look forward to continuing to expand the extracurricular opportunities for students coming to Washington, DC!
