“Staying in WISH housing was great! I was close to everything, my room was perfect and right on Capitol Hill. Best of all, I made friends for life.”

I had one of the best experiences of my life in DC, and a big part of it was WISH. They have social events planned ahead of time so you meet other interns and network. No one is going to be bored or feel homesick.”
