Students participating in the Program in Washington toured the U.S. Department of State on April 30. While the group was able to catch a glimpse of State Department officials at work while passing through the first floor, the tour focused mainly on the eighth floor Diplomatic Reception Rooms. The Secretary of State meets with hundreds of dignitaries, both foreign and domestic, in these rooms each year.
