"Internships in Washington, D.C. are an invaluable experience. Students not only have the opportunity to experience the legislative process first hand, they also meet people from across the country and around the world. Our nation's capitol is an extraordinary classroom. I hope that every student will participate in an internship which offers insight into the policy making process. It is this process which makes our country the most successful democratic nation in the world."

"The Baylor Summer Internship program in Washington is equivalent to a year's education, both in knowledge acquired and experience gained. This is an exciting city that opens the eyes of interns to a larger world and to expanded opportunities."

"The summer intern program can be a critically important element in jump starting a young person's career. The Washington experience is such an eye opener. There are so many things going on and so many opportunities to meet people and visit places that most people only read about. I always look forward to meeting with the Baylor summer interns because they are bright and eager to learn. The Baylor interns always leave Washington smarter and with a better understanding of our country and the world."
