It’s always the things we haven’t done ever or in awhile that we think, “oh, that’s fun! i want to do that!” and for me that was traveling. I was lucky enough to travel to DC this spring to attend the JStreet National Conference with Hannah (pictured in the brunch photo) exploring all of DC’s amazing sights and weather! Honestly traveling is one of the amazing opportunities afforded to you in college. Many clubs have national affiliations with regional or national conferences that host amazing keynote speakers, thought-provoking breakout sessions and you get to meet amazing people from other colleges and parts of the country! Just because you attend a West Coast conference, not everyone who goes to schools there are only from the West Coast! Additionally since conferences are part of club activities or school supported activities (since you’re representing the school) there are many ways for various clubs, student government, finance, academic departments, etc. to subsidize costs of travel! It was my first time to DC and since I didn’t have classes, Hannah I arrived at the conference a little early and stayed later to soak up full days of exploring! It’s the original experiential learning experience!
