News Elected Officials Receive Visit from D.C. Interns

The Fall 2014 state-wide elections in Georgia resulted in several changes in representation in both the United States Senate and House in Washington, D.C. The reputation of Georgia Southern’s Eagles in D.C. program helped open the doors to new internship opportunities and several of our new elected officials received a welcomed visit from our Spring and Summer interns. Pictures below are interns presenting autographed Eagle Footballs to our new D.C. “team members.”
