If you don't know about the SC Washington Semester Program, it is a combination of an internship and two other classes. One is a current issues class, and the other is a theater class. The internship placements can be in congressional offices or almost any place else you can think of in DC. I probably won't know for a while where my placement will be, but anything I would get would be helpful to me in my interest areas (news and PR). There will be 14-18 of us (I'm not sure how many they accepted this year) in the program, from many different schools in SC. Our housing is 2-3 blocks from Capitol Hill and around the corner from Union Station, which is pretty incredible.
I probably won't be posting again until I find out my internship placement, other info about the program, or until I get there, but I was so excited I wanted to get the blog up and running now :]
