Join your Fall 2019 CALL cohort in the City Seminar, featuring site visits, panels, and D.C. exploration of all kinds
All internships will be developed in partnership with the CALL to establish the quality of the internship experience, including expectations, goals and deliverables.
Call internship opportunities are being developed to include diverse options with non-profits, NGOs, legislative offices, cultural institutions, and entrepreneurial startups– especially those focused on social enterprise.
Housing will be assigned in much the same way as when you’re on the Hilltop– in the spring semester, you’ll find out about your CALL housing assignments and your Spring housing on the Hilltop for when you return.
Georgetown will house CALL students in a dorm at 14th and L Streets, NW. The dorm features 24-hour professionally-trained support staff, full kitchens, and social and classroom spaces.
Just over a mile from the CALL, students may find the trip from the downtown dorm walkable, and others will use a University-provided shuttle service. This location will offer students shorter and easier commutes to internship sites, and proximity to events in downtown DC.
If you are interested in spending a downtown semester with the CALL, sign up for CALL Prep in Spring 2019– and guarantee your spot in the CALL cohort. If you have any questions, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
