At the conclusion you’ll have an opportunity to enter a drawing for a $15 Starbucks gift card. Survey results will be gathered anonymously, with drawing entries collected separately from survey results.
Responses are due by Friday, November 18th.
Haven’t see much of DC recently? Was your last DC outing during orientation?
Take a study break and explore DC with Healthy Living @ Himmelfarb’s newest feature: independent explorations of DC from your Himmelfarb Library home base. We’ll provide you a map for a walk that you can take during lunch or for a longer study break on the weekend – and some brief notes on what you can see on the walk.
Lunchtime walk: The White House
It’s so close but it’s easy to forget how close it. Head down I Street NW to Pennsylvania and then make a loop around the White House. During your walk, watch for the Embassy of Mexico, The Renwick Gallery, and the Blair House, the official guest house for the White House.
One way: .9 miles (19 minutes)
Round trip: 1.8 miles (38 minutes)
