BC: Special Thanks to: Adrienne Jamieson, Patrick, Suzanne, Nichole, Lori, Del, Chef Tate, Kathleen, Jameelah, Darren, Wallace, Clarence, Margarita, Rosa, Ivan, Angela, Thomas, Joseph, and Jackie. You all have made this program so wonderful and we cannot thank you enough! <3
1: Since its inception in 1988, the Bing Stanford in Washington Program has given over 1,300 Stanford undergraduates the opportunity to study and work in our nation's capital. Students intern in government and non-government organizations during the day, take classes taught by Stanford faculty and national policy experts in the evenings, and participate in cultural events and activities on the weekends. We are grateful to Helen and Peter Bing who have provided an endowment that supports the program in addition to the many trips and cultural events that are central to the SIW experience.
2: Letter from the Director | Letter from the RA | To my SIW crew: It has been such a pleasure to watch you all discover the joys of DC. I'll truly miss you guys so much. From our first trip to Gettysburg to the jam-packed trip to Charleston to all the nights we've spent playing Catan, watching football, or just talking-- it's been great getting to know you all. Here's to all your adventures ahead-- whether abroad or back on the farm. And if you ever find yourself back in DC, you always have a place to stay and a person to visit! | Fall 2013 has been a busy and controversial season in Washington; major historic observances were tempered with a demonstration of political deadlock. In the midst of the celebrations and confusion, the SIW fall class tackled the challenges of internships, classes and so much more with energy, enthusiasm and intelligence. It has been a pleasure living and working with you; traveling to historic sites and southern cities; analyzing politicians and policies around seminars and dinner tables and genuinely enjoying your company. Best of luck in 2014. You will always be part of the SIW family. | Adrienne Jamieson | Kara Runsten
