BRISTOL — For the past 10 years, King freshmen have been experiencing the nation’s capitol, Washington D.C., and making connections that will last a lifetime. This year, freshmen will Experience D.C. on Sept. 20-22.
This unique class trip is far more than a sightseeing tour. “Experience D.C. is a shared experience designed to build cohort unity, through interaction with faculty, staff, and King alumni outside the classroom setting,” said Matt Peltier, King’s dean of students. “The freshman will also have this adventure in common with King sophomores, juniors, and seniors, as well as alumni who went in previous years. There is an exploration piece — getting to see how what you are doing theoretically in the classroom, in your major, can turn into your vocation. The trip is also designed to show students how vast the options are for careers within the field they choose.”
