Students in a new LAS course, pictured here, met with many U of I alumni in Washington, D.C., including William Brighton (BA, ‘73, French), far right, an assistant section chief at the U.S. Department of Justice. (Photo courtesy of Melissa Schoeplein.)

Twelve U of I students took advantage of spring break to visit Washington, D.C., for a week of site visits and career-building and networking events with professionals – many of whom were Illini alumni.

The trip, organized by LAS career development specialist Melissa Schoeplein, was part of a class centered around this trip. Schoeplein began organizing the new course, called LAS 199: Exploring Careers in Government – LAS in D.C., in fall 2016, and it launched this semester.
