Internship Opportunity – Obama for America

29 Feb

Field Organizing Internship with Obama for America – Arlington, VA

Interested in getting hands-on campaign experience and helping to reelect the President of
the United States?

Obama for America is looking for field organizing interns to work out of our Arlington, VA
office. Interns will gain valuable campaign knowledge and skills, build their resumes, and
work with great people all working to help President Obama win in November.

Arlington County is one of the most important Democratic strongholds in one of the most
important states electorally for the campaign, so interns will be able to see firsthand the
fruits of their labor when the election results come in on November 6.

Responsibilities include:

Contacting and persuading voters
Recruiting and training volunteers
Data entry and other administrative tasks

There will also be chances to take on more responsibilities as the campaign progresses
throughout the year. This is a great opportunity for college students and recent college
graduates. For more information or to schedule an interview, please email Chris Sedor at

It’s the Spring Hike! [Hike]

24 Feb

Prof. Shepherd leads the expedition!  Join him for a casual hike in beautiful Shenandoah — specifically, “Big Schloss.”  We promise it looks much prettier than it sounds.

This is a different location than where we go for the fall hike; we want you to really see the world.

Your $5 ticket buys you: Transportation! Light breakfast! Lunch! Views of nature! Exploration! Adventure! Camaraderie! Probably some cookies! The possibility of spotting bigfoot! The less likely possibility of befriending bigfoot! The highly likely possibility of walking on top of a mountain! Access to a real, live anthropologist! More!

When:  Saturday, March 24th.  The bus will leave the UHP office (714 21st Street) at 9 am, and be back to GW by 5.30 pm.

To signup: Drop off $5 cash at the UHP office.  Tell us your name, too.

Deadline to sign up: Tuesday, March 20th at 5pm.
