By Yasin Johnson, Residential Coordinator, CIP Berkeley
CIP Berkeley had their third successful spring break trip. This year’s trip was to our Nation’s Capital, Washington, D.C.
Led by myself, CIP Berkeley Residential Coordinator Yasin Johnson, students had seven days of continuous fun, excitement, and educational experiences. Some of this year’s activities included tours of numerous museums such as the National Air & Space Museum, Museum of Natural History, and the Spy Museum.
Furthermore, students took a tour of the historic and famous Arlington Cemetery, saw the numerous monuments and even had an opportunity to take pictures with WWII veterans.
Between sightseeing, touring, and posing with former war veterans, students also had an opportunity to taste many of the different ethnic cuisines that DC had to offer. From organic, pastured beef at Black and Orange’s in DuPont Circle to Chinese food, there were a wide variety of foods that were sampled in DC.
Students returned home exhausted, happy, and a bit disappointed that they could not extend their stay, but pleased that they were able to attend. Discussions have began about possible destinations for spring break in 2013.
