is incredible. | has prepared me to succeed. | has connected me with a great mentor. | is so worth the time. | is the best resource out there.

I used the skills from C2C-U to network in DC and obtain two internship offers. I attribute great value to the knowledge and skills I gained from C2C-U, especially as it relates to Congressional internship norms and preparing resumes and cover letters.
The support College to Congress has been providing has been amazing! [T]he mentorship aspect of the program has been very helpful.
I cannot thank College to Congress enough for all the work you do for students like me. The information that I learned in C2C-U has been extremely valuable to my success in this job. From always doing things without being asked or learning how to network, I have been able to receive praise from my bosses for the work I do.
