Lander University student Jeremy Babb has wanted to visit Washington, D.C., but never had occasion to make the trip. Now, he will spend the spring 2010 semester in the nation's capital thanks to his standing as an honor student, and a team effort by members of the Lander faculty, and his fiancée.
Babb is the first Lander student chosen for the Washington Semester Internship Program developed and administered by the University of South Carolina's Honors College. Interns are usually assigned to the office of a member of South Carolina's congressional delegation, but Babb will have to wait until he arrives in Washington to find out where he will be working. In addition to being paid, he will also earn Lander course credit for the January-to-April semester in Washington.
