Discovering a Nation: ISAC Trip to Washington, D.C.
International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) recently travelled with 40 Georgia State international students for the annual International Student Associations Council (ISAC) trip to Washington, D.C. The excursion, which is in its tenth year, allowed for students to discover American history, government, and democracy in action through tours of monuments, museums, memorials in the Nation’s Capitol. Additionally, the group took a daytrip to Monticello, Virginia to visit the mountaintop home of Thomas Jefferson.
This year, the students were also treated to a special visit with Congressman John Lewis (D-GA5) on Capitol Hill. Representing several nations, from Cote d’Ivoire to Ukraine, the international Panthers held a lively discussion with Congressman Lewis on civil rights and justice in the United States and Crimea.
