Close Up was the GREATEST experience of my life!..
It has inspired me to become a political leader in this great country. I have not only gained an even greater expansion of knowledge in the area of politics, but I have also gained lifelong friends.
Close Up is AMAZING…
I could not recommend it more highly. I took a group of 10 juniors as a first year teacher and all nerves I had were alleviated by my rep and the organization itself. It was THE smoothest process and week ever. You should never pass up an opportunity to experience Close Up!!!
I’m all pumped up from the program! …
I plan to speak to everyone about the experience for students here. The curricular component has been rigorous and productive.
Close Up brought me CLOSER to politics…
the entire notion no longer seemed obscure. I became very involved in politics on the local and national level.
