Welcome! Thanks for joining us on our 11-day adventure in the nation’s capital.
This is the blog of a Drake University January-term course called “Inside Washington: The Presidential Inauguration.” Twenty-five students, representing a wide variety of majors, and two professors are on the Jan. 11-22 trip.
This blog will chronicle our experiences and also offer some analysis of what we see, do, hear and learn.
Most days we hope to have about six new posts, beginning Saturday, Jan. 12. For now, you can read the students’ short essays on what they hope to gain from the trip.
