Living in the Johnson Building as an intern is the easiest and most fun way of making instant friends during your first few days in Washington, D.C. These are friends that could last for a lifetime. I still stay in touch and spend time with friends I made in the Johnson Building in 2010. Living there gave me a good foundation from which to branch out, meet new people, get involved outside of my internship, and set up roots in D.C. But nothing could replace that foundation--belonging to D.C. from day one.

I loved living in the Johnson Building! At college it could be hard being constantly surrounded by people who had a different political viewpoint than my own. At the Johnson Building, however, I got to spend all my time with intelligent, ambitious, well-spoken young conservatives like myself. Truly, I think some of my best connections in DC were made while living here.
