2011 College Bound Summer Academy Visits Washington D.C.

On August 1-3, 2011, 16 Chess-in-the-Schools College Bound students travelled to Washington, D.C. to tour American University and George Washington University.

In addition to learning about what these colleges have to offer, students had the opportunity to sightsee around the city. From touring the capitol, to learning about American art, to exploring national monuments, students got the full DC experience.  

Although there were no Obama sightings, students are excited about the college experience, and look forward to visiting more institutions during the upcoming year!
