Preparing Global Citizens

Washington, D.C. Trip

Experience D.C. - Total Immersion Style 2014!

Spring Break

During our time in D.C., students will get to know the city and the people who live and work there. Students meet Fairfield alumni, tour the Capitol with legislative staffers, participate in meetings hosted by upper level personnel, and visit with Homeland Security officials - all adding up to an amazing, unforgettable spring break.

"There are many advocates not only in DC but all over the world. There are other passionate people in this world and I met many of them in DC. They inspired me to find my passions and explore, research, and be active."

Learn more about the trip and view the application. View last year's agenda (below) to learn about our spring 2014 trip.  The trip will run from Sunday, March 23rd to Wednesday, March 26th.
