Finally, students on campus who went to Washington as juniors last spring are an invaluable resource, and you are encouraged to contact one or more of them to discuss the experience.

In their own words...

"I grew the most as a person during the Washington Honors Semester.
It was an incredible opportunity that should be encouraged to all students,
regardless of their major. It is the link forom the educational realm to the real world."
