Join us this summer in the nation's capital to explore your future career and gain valuable leadership skills.

American University

A climate of sustainability
American University was the first university in the nation to be carbon neutral.

A patriotic color scheme
The university’s colors are red, white, and blue; however, when the school originally opened its colors were blue and orange.

Commencement in the Cold War
President John F. Kennedy gave his famous “A Strategy of Peace” speech at American University’s commencement ceremony, calling for a nuclear test ban treaty with the Soviet Union.

Georgetown University

Notable alumni
Georgetown boasts many notable alumni, including NBA player Allen Iverson, actor Bradley Cooper, and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Civil War influence
Georgetown nearly closed its doors during the Civil War, when almost all of their enrolled students left to fight for both the Union and Confederacy. Upon the end of the war, the students selected blue and gray as the school colors to represent the Union (blue) and Confederacy (gray).

A Hoya or a Jack?
Georgetown had a tradition of naming its live canine mascots Hoya, after their sports team nickname. However, one bulldog would only respond to the name Jack. Since then, the official mascot of Georgetown has been Jack the Bulldog.
