“…my time in D.C. was invaluable”

Hometown: Alta, Iowa
Majors: Political Science and History
Internship: The Naval History and Heritage Command in Washington D.C.
“I lived in Washington, D.C. for a semester interning in the curator department at the Naval History and Heritage Command and participating in the Washington Center program. Although I determined that I would not pursue a career in museum studies, my time in D.C. was invaluable. I benefitted from the endless amount of educational programs D.C. has to offer, especially those about the Civil War. I also attended dozens of free lectures by premier Civil War historians and was able to travel often across the east coast.”
