History Club Sponsors Trip to Washington, D.C.

In March 2012 the History Club sponsored a bus trip to Washington, D.C., to visit museums and celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Cherry Blossom Festival.  The trip was free and open to any SFU student who wanted to come along.  Read more about it and see more pictures after the jump!

History  Club president Lizeth George (class of 2013) demonstrated her inquisitive nature and interest in photography even before reaching Washington, D.C., at this rest stop along the way.

 

The Korean War Memorial offered a glimpse into this often-forgotten conflict.

 

 

 

Washington’s sights, such as the Korean War Memorial, offered students the chance to experience History outside of the classroom.

Students took advantage of the fact that entrance into the Smithsonian museums is FREE – thanks to our tax dollars – and experienced history in this way, too.  Some visited the Museum of the American Indian.
