Eight Eastern Mennonite University students and one Bluffton University student are gaining professional experience this fall at the Washington Community Scholars’ Center (WCSC). They represent six different majors, showing the range of placement possibilities available through the program. The diversity includes three students majoring in political science, two majoring in political science and history, one majoring in social work, one student majoring in social work and psychology, one sociology major and one computer science major.

The center, located in the nation’s capital since 1976, is a program of Eastern Mennonite University.

The semester-long experience is also a community-building endeavor, with students living together in the Nelson Good House in the Brookland neighborhood of Northeast Washington, D.C.
