    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Service-Learning in my freshman seminar required that I learn the city and create lasting relationships with my community. The classroom culture was that of authentic service and critical writing workshop, within the context of learning about our roles (at college and in DC) together.

    Course highlights:

    Through my position as an Advocate at LIFT-DC, an anti-poverty organization in Ward 8, I worked with individuals in one-on-one weekly meetings to help them access public benefits, housing, and employment. My subsequent position as a Service-Learning Scholar for Professor Ryder allowed me to better grasp structural avenues for change through working with multiple D.C. organizations, and guiding curriculum focused on race relations in the U.S.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you're genuinely interested in improving your writing and gaining genuine insight about Washington, D.C.'s complex culture, this class is absolutely for you. If you're interested in a lighter course load your freshman year or waiting to get an internship, think about another UW section.
