Will you be in D.C. this summer?
Back for its fifty-third year, Career Services' Princeton in Washington (PIW) program begins June 2018. All Princeton students and recent alumni who will be in the Washington, D.C. area during the summer are invited to participate in social activities, events and a speaker series featuring high-profile alumni and experts.
Participants will have the opportunity to meet alumni and professionals, explore careers in public service, connect with peers and learn about opportunities in politics, law, nonprofit, arts and more. The program is open to all undergraduate and graduate students, as well as young alumni. There is no application process, but interested Princetonians need to fill out a survey to be added to the email newsletter mailing list in order to receive updates about the events.
Rising sophomore Ethan Katz is serving as the PIW coordinator and planning the programming for the summer.
"Our University’s informal motto is In the Nation’s Service and the Service of Humanity; what is perhaps most special about PIW is its ability to connect students with the alumni networks and organizations who are performing this service daily," said Katz. "This year, I want to highlight the diverse roles Princeton alumni and other professionals have in Washington, D.C. to improve the United States and the entire world."
Confirmed events for this summer can be found on the PIW events page, and more are being added in the coming days.
"PIW doesn’t only connect students with industry professionals—it also connects students with other students," said Katz. "Throughout the summer, there will also be social events, mixers, festivals and concerts where students can meet in a less formal environment, creating a feeling of community that only Princeton can provide. Whether you’re interested in economic policy, foreign affairs, national security, energy, or activism, there will be programming for everyone this summer."
Princeton in Washington is sponsored by the Office of Career Services with support from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, the Office of Government Affairs and the Princeton Club of Washington, D.C.
