Students Absorb D.C.’s Diverse Culture During Spring Getaway

A “Cultural Immersion” trip to Washington, D.C., over Spring Break acquainted Penn College students with the smorgasbord of issues, art, food and ethnicity in the nation’s capital. Organized by the Student Activities Office, the March 7-12 experience included visits to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, where the group attended “Shomyo no Kai,” a vocal performance by Buddhist monks from Japan; the Smithsonian Institution, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum; Arlington National Cemetery; the Newseum; and varied monuments, eateries and neighborhoods throughout the city. The group (members of which provided these photos for PCToday) also sat down with Patience Peabody, communications director at LIFT, to learn about the work the agency does in raising people out of poverty.
