Our cohort is getting a chance to bond in D.C. - they're checking out all of the great neighborhood food shops located near their UCDC campus together, meeting students studying from other universities, and even celebrating birthdays together!
Katrina, a member of the 2015 cohort, turned 20 during our first week of orientation. It was perfect timing, as it allowed us all to celebrate together and get to know each other! Also, the UCDC building is very resident-friendly, and has many lounges and common spaces which are great places to meet the two hundred other student living in the building. In the past two weeks, I have met students from all over the nation - like University of Michigan, UC-Berkley, UCLA, and Notre Dame! The lounges are a great hub to study and network.
