Student Reviews

Sam Inman, Class of 2011
Interning at KSCW, Inc., a lobbying firm in Washington D.C. through The Washington Center was definitely a positive experience. Washington D.C. is a fabulous place to spend any amount of time, and the career and internship opportunities are first rate.

Saint Anselm College's close relationship with The Washington Center makes the internship experience a hassle-free one, and the transition between a semester here at St. A's and at The Washington Center is a smooth one. In my time in Washington D.C., I learned more about the city, enjoyed a rewarding internship with endless social opportunities, all while continuing to receive credit through Saint Anselm.

Jessica Saxon, Class of 2011
My summer in D.C. at The Washington Center was one of my favorite college experiences. I interned for the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) , which is a non-profit lobbying organization for volunteer firefighters. My time at the NVFC was spent working with volunteer firefighters and talking to members of Congress about possible bills they could consider to help aid volunteer firefighters. Not only was my time at my internship exciting, but my time in the city was very memorable. You live on your own and get a sense of what life is like in the real world.

Washington, D.C. is an amazing place to live! There is so much to do in the city; you will never find yourself bored.
