Student Quote:

“I’ve really enjoyed meeting new people and getting to explore more about global health and opportunities for my future.”

Highlights:

  • Trial Law Excursion – instructor guided tour of the Supreme Court
    • Trial Law students visited the Supreme Court and took advantage of a variety of educational programs, including Courtroom Lectures, a Visitor Film, and court-related Exhibitions.
    • Highlights include the John Marshall statue, portraits and busts of former Justices, and two self-supporting marble staircases.
  • American U campus tour:
    • American University combines a tradition of strong undergraduate and graduate education with a focus on experiential learning, global leadership, and public service.
    • Fun fact – American University was chartered by Congress in 1893. An answer to George Washington’s call to create a national university in the nation’s capital.
  • Afternoon & Evening Activities
    • In between all of the academic and career exploration portions of Summer Springboard, students are enjoying the fun activities. A favorite was the blind lego contest and tye-dye t-shirts!
