Description

UDC extends beyond its campus footprint, offering easy access to world-famous monuments, political intrigue and cultural attractions everywhere you look. An education here opens doors to opportunities that can only be found in the nation's capital. Hop on the Metro and within minutes you can be touring the White House, kayaking on the Potomac, attending an opening night performance at the Source or exploring the beauty of nature in Rock Creek Park. Washington, DC may be the capital of the United States, but it is also home to the world's embassies, languages and cuisines; the headquarters of major think tanks, NGOs and non-profits; the heart of American politics and a rich source of inspiration to writers, film-makers, musicians and artists of every genre. A city of neighborhoods, each with its own history and traditions, there's always something to do, to see, to try in Washington, DC. That's extra-credit enrichment you can't find anywhere else.
