The GW College Democrats will host their inaugural internship fair next Monday to connect Democratic students with Democratic institutions.

President of GW College Democrats Christine Farzan said the group reached out to “really diverse organizations” for the fair, including representatives from the Democratic National Committee and Americans for Responsible Solutions.

Representatives from the Podesta Group, a lobbying and public affairs firm, and the Democratic Senatorial Campaigns Committee will participate in the event.

Farzan, a junior, said she wanted to have a separate internship fair from GW’s annual spring event, so that students could focus on their interests.

“We’re having Democrats come speak to Democrats,” Farzan said. “It’ll also be more comfortable since it’s a smaller internship fair and they’ll get kids that are really interested in taking on these opportunities.”

Farzan said one goal of the event will to be to connect students to as many opportunities as possible. She said if the event goes smoothly, it could become “an annual thing.”

“One of the hardest things to do as a student is to deal with school and also figure out what to do for three months in the summer,” Farzan said.

Lande Watson, the group’s political affairs chair, was one of the main organizers of the event.

“One of the great things College Dems provides its members is the opportunity to network and get involved with D.C. professional and political life,” Watson, a sophomore, said.
