Ursinus College Student Charlotte Rohrer Discusses Spring 2017 DC Experience

Where did you intern this Fall and what were some of your favorite projects?

I interned at the National Peace Corps Association and some of my favorite tasks were going up to the Hill with my supervisor and meeting with congressional staffers.

What did you learn in your classes?

The most important part I took away from the Internship Seminar is the importance of networking. Moreover, I took the class on International and Foreign Policy which not only taught me more about the American point of view on foreign policy, but also connected me with several interesting speakers.

What did you do in your free time?

In my free time, I did several different things, including going to see museums, the cherry blossom festival, networking and attending several events by different think tanks. One experience I would recommend is going to different events, be it at embassies or think tanks. They are always worth it and often free!

Recommendations for future DC interns?

Go out and network while in D.C.! Most people are happy to help with your career path.
