Life as an Intern

Housing

Texas Tech interns are given the option to live in the "Tech House,” located two blocks away from the Capitol, during their stay in Washington D.C. The Tech House is located within walking distance of both the House and Senate Office Buildings, the Supreme Court, the Library of Congress and the National Mall. The Tech House is also located across the street from the Capitol South Metro stop, which allows for easy travel throughout Washington D.C.

Free Time

During their time as interns, students are encouraged to get the full “D.C. experience” by exploring the city and surrounding areas and traveling along the East Coast. Interns will have the opportunity to discover the Smithsonian museums, tour the White House and visit our National Monuments. Additionally, the Dupont Circle area, Old Town Alexandria, Adams Morgan, Georgetown and Eastern Market provide entertainment for interns when they are not working in the office. Traditionally, interns have traveled to New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Virginia Beach, Atlantic City, Boston, Gettysburg, Manassas and many other areas. There are also ample receptions, Texas State Society and Texas Tech Alumni Association events, and various festivals to attend while in D.C.
