“I really loved the diversity in Washington, D.C. There were so many different aspects–from the backgrounds to the cuisines–it’s just a really great social city to be in. I would recommend to prospective students that D.C. is an excellent choice. It’s a metropolitan city where things are moving and there are a lot of job opportunities in the area.”
