The Washington City Paper Published Advice from DC Residents

The Washington City Paper just published a series of advice and essays from native D.C. residents to newcomers to the city. We encourage you to continue to learn more about the city we are apart of, and encourage your students to leave the “Foggy Bottom Bubble” and become a part of both the campus and local community. The idea from the city paper resonated with us that- “Most newcomers reside in DC to fulfill a purpose: to go to a university or work on Capitol Hill or a think tank or campaign, but this district holds so much significance, expressed in just one word: home. Newcomers must be mindful and at times sensitive to who they are living next door to, riding the train with, walking and eating amongst. DC is much more than a land of promise and opportunity, it is a place of comfort, warmth, and familiarity.”
