There are no Fletcher classes today or tomorrow while students are visiting Washington, DC for the annual career trip. A couple of weeks ago, the director of the Office of Career Services, Phillip McMullen, sent us a preview of the many different activities students could choose from. Here’s how he described the trip for his colleagues.
Hi All –
My great team has pulled together another winning DC Career Trip, which is two weeks away. We closed registration last night and I thought I would share a few statistics.
- A total of 67 events over the two days:
- 9 Panels
- 3 Affinity Group Events
- 24 Site Visits
- 30 Alumni Lunches
- 1 Alumni-Student Reception (250 students/250 alumni)
- 1, 440 — total seating capacity across all events, excluding the reception
- 320 participating students
- 160+ alumni speakers/hosts, excluding the reception
- Some new additions this year:
- National Security/White House Tour/Briefing
- DM&E Roundtable
Staff members who will be in DC are welcome to join us at the reception. A cozy gathering of 500 enthusiastic Fletcherites.
