My fellowship experience
"One of the most important things I learned about the Hill was exactly how Congress works, and I don't think that you can have a full understanding of how it works until you've been there and seen it for yourself."

Fellowship Overview

Fellowship Name
Cornell Fellow in Representative Government

Site
Office of Congressman Dave Loebsack

Washington, DC

Aims of the Fellowship
I worked for Congressman Loebsack through the Cornell Fellows Program at Cornell. Most of what I did related to constituents, everything from logging letters into the database to mailing the final letters. It was a challenge working for a new office.
