OCU School of Business & Government Students at Capitol Building

School of Business & Government Students Tour Washington, D.C.

Twenty-six Ohio Christian University School of Business & Government® students attended a two-day tour of Washington, D.C. and Mount Vernon, Virginia, on Oct. 23rd and 24th, 2017.

The students toured George Washington’s home and Mount Vernon Plantation led by Mr. Robert Morrison, Family Research Council Senior Fellow, and Dr. Phil Burgess, chief executive of Annapolis Institute and member of SB&G’s Government Advisory Council.

The students visited Catholic University of America’s Columbus School of Law where they listened to presentations by Dennis Coyle, Chair Constitutional Law, Comparative Law and Political Culture, and Robert Destro, Professor of Law and Director of the School’s Interdisciplinary Program in Law & Religion.

The students met also with foreign policy directors from the U.S. State Department and capped this experience with an after-hours tour of the United States Capitol led by Polly Jordan, wife of Congressman Jim Jordan.

The School of Business & Government’s annual Washington, D.C. Experience enables students to meet various leaders of their federal government.  They interact face-to-face with federal government leaders and discuss how governing theory and practice coincide.  To graduate, SB&G students must attend one of these annual Washington, D.C. Experiences.
