Student Testimonial

"My semester at UCDC was absolutely phenomenal. I had an amazing experience working in a federal agency and with a non-profit foundation and was able to meet some amazing leaders and visonaries who are doing the tough work that is needed to change this country. Being in Washington D.C. on election night 2008 and watching President Barack Obama get elected as the 44th President of the United States of America is an experience I will never forget. I highly encourage all UC Merced students, regardless of major, to consider spending a semester in Washington, D.C.!"
