The Model House of Representatives
Here’s a terrific opportunity for Pacific Political Science students. Junior Adam Ellison (pictured at left, really trust us, he’s there) participated last year and hasn’t stopped raving about it since.
The United States Model House of Representatives will be held May 28-June 2, 2007 in Washington, DC. This unique program provides the foremost experience and education in policy making, relationship building, and negotiation skills, within the Halls of Congress.
The U.S. Model House of Representatives will bring together students from across the country for a simulation of the House of Representatives. This prestigious event will be held at the Capitol Complex, in the Congressional Committee Rooms, the U.S. Capitol building, and the Floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. This momentous event will also include visits to the National Archives, Supreme Court, Library of Congress, Lincoln Memorial and Jefferson Memorial. The final day culminates with presentation of the Bills, debate and full House vote proceedings on Capitol Hill.
