The ASP Fall 2017 cohort has now been in Washington, DC for two weeks. This semester, we have representatives from Biola University, Bluefield College, George Fox University, Gordon College, John Brown University, Judson University, Northwest University, Olivet Nazarene University, Seattle Pacific University, and Whitworth University.
After a few days of orientation, the students were off to explore the city. Their adventures brought them to the top of the Old Post Office Pavilion, a baseball game at Nationals Stadium, and to volunteering at Little Lights (an after-school program). Continuing with the ASP tradition of Bus Day, the students spent their first Saturday meeting their new neighbors in each of DC’s four quadrants.
In the classroom, we have been learning about the origin stories of state, law, and government, and why political order and development matter to public policy. We have also been discussing what it looks like to live and lead when Christ and his kingdom define our identity and images of success at work. And on Monday, the students will show up for the first day of work at their internships!
