Doane students will take in the sights of Washington D.C., tour news organizations and museums and finally attend the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.
Throughout the week students will visit CNN, NPR and The Washington Post, meeting with CNN’s Jeff Zeleny and The Post’s Jenna Johnson along the way-- both of whom are Nebraska natives.
The trip will also include visits with Sen. Deb Fischer, Sen. Ben Sasse and congressman Adrian Smith.
These interviews and tours all lead up to the inauguration of Donald Trump, and the students will be investigating the journalists’ and representatives’ experiences and perspectives on President-elect Trump’s upcoming term as president.
But a trip to the capital of the nation isn’t complete without plenty of time spent taking in the sights.
The schedule includes plenty of time for exploring the national mall, learning from the National Archives, Smithsonian museums and more.
