Washington, DC is the political capital of the United States. But, what else does it have to offer? NYU DC Dialogues led students on a walking tour to visit innovative and diverse organizations to show different sides of the Nation’s capital. Students spoke with staff and learned about the mission of each organization. This semester's walking tour included visits to Voice of America, the Library of Congress, and the Penn Biden Center.
Please note that this walking tour was for current NYU DC Students only.
