Graves in DC

This past winter I lived in Washington D.C. and worked full-time as an intern for Senator Scott Brown (R-MA). As a Government Major this was a great opportunity to gain experience and insight into public sector career paths.

In addition to standard office tasks such as answering phone calls and sorting emails, I worked for the Senator's legislative aides on government affairs, energy, banking and tax policies. I also had the opportunity give tours of the U.S. Capitol Building to constituents, and on occasion, even walked the Senator's dogs. All in all, it was an incredibly valuable and enjoyable off-term. I am excited to be back on campus and looking forward to a great spring term.
