Princeton in Washington program to begin June 20
Back for its fifty-second year, Career Services' Princeton in Washington program begins June 2017. All students and recent alumni working, interning and/or living in the Washington, D.C. area are invited to participate in social activities, events and a speaker series led by alumni and experts. This program is co-sponsored by the Office of Government Affairs and the Woodrow Wilson School.
Christopher Umanzor, a member of the Class of 2019, is coordinating the programs and social events this summer. Students interested in participating can sign up here to receive more information and be added to the email newsletter.
"Princeton in Washington is all about bringing people together—students, alumni, and professionals from a variety of backgrounds and fields," said Umanzor. "With such a broad range of speakers and events, there is really something for everyone and I cannot wait to see the program start on June 20."
Confirmed speakers for this summer include: Raymond DuBois '72, senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies; Alexis Levinson '10, Buzzfeed reporter, General David H. Petraeus *85 *87 former director of the CIA; Elizabeth Andersen *92, director, Rule of Law Initiative; Ben Bernanke, former chairman of the Federal Reserve; and many more. There will also be behind-the-scenes tours at CNN, the Washington Post, ESPN, ABC News and more.
"Students won't want to miss out on this amazing opportunity to discuss policy issues with our nation's leaders and other topics from experts in everything from journalism to health to entertainment and beyond," said Umanzor.
Additionally, there will be a Princeton in Washington Careers Meetup in July where students will have the opportunity to meet alumni and employers for networking, career conversations and to learn about a variety of fields including government, public affairs, law, nonprofits and more.
