Discovering a Nation: ISAC Trip to Washington, D.C.

International Student Associations Council (ISAC) Trip to Washington, D.C.

Panthers meet with Congressman John Lewis (D-GA5) on Capitol Hill during the annual International Student Associations Council (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.

For more information on next year’s trip, which is coordinated in collaboration with Recreational Services’ Touch the Earth program, please contact Mike Townsend in ISSS at ctownsend@gsu.edu.
