The staff were amazing--everyone was so friendly, and they go out of their way to help interns transition to life in D.C. They also tried to give each intern projects tailored to their individual interests.
What I wish was different
I would encourage students considering a Senate internship to try and plan their class schedule so they can spend their semester as an intern without having to take additional online classes. D.C. has so much to offer for evening/weekend activities--much better than doing online class homework!
