“Until you live the DC experience, you can't describe it. Capital Semester immerses you in every facet of this city, from catching high-profile speakers in the area and learning how to make contacts, all the way down to using the DC metro. I do not know of a single person in our program that left DC unchanged; most can't wait to get back.”
