It’s Road Trip Time!
Our free weekend “road trips” to some of the region’s most historic places provide hands-on learning opportunities for inquisitive Washington College students. Road trips take students behind-the-scenes at national museums, put them in front row seats to experience professional theater, and lead them through city streets and down dusty country lanes exploring our nation’s past.
Check out our upcoming trips, and join us on the road.
