DC Day 2013

On March 27, 2013, NYU’s Office of Government Affairs and Community Engagement and the John Brademas Center for the Study of Congress hosted a trip to Washington, DC for “DC Day 2013,” where students went to Capitol Hill to voice their support for key federal student aid programs.

Our presence on the Hill reinforces to Members of Congress how important federal student aid programs are to students at New York University and around the country. During the trip, participants had the unique opportunity to meet Members of Congress and their staff, voice their ideas and concerns regarding federal financial assistance, and learn about the intricacies of the political atmosphere of Capitol Hill.

Check back soon for registration materials and details for DC Day 2014!

Transportation and lodging will be provided for all students selected to participate, including an arrival dinner at NYU Washington, DC.  Selected student participants will be required to attend a briefing session the week prior to the trip. The briefing session will introduce students to current issues regarding the overall federal policy landscape, higher education policy, and student aid.
