UTSA students witness history on Inauguration Day
(Jan. 20, 2017) -- Bill Archer Fellows from The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) will get a front row seat to history today.
Fellows, Melina Acosta and Anusha Hussain, are studying in Washington, D.C. this semester and are excited to be there on Inauguration Day.
"I decided regardless of the outcome, I wanted to see this historic event firsthand while I was in the nation's capital for the Archer Fellowship Program," said Hussain who is a senior biology major and Archer Fellow.
The Bill Archer Fellowship Program brings accomplished students from across The University of Texas System to Washington, D.C. to participate in internships and take part in courses focusing on government, economics and public policy.
"This will be a very memorable day and I'm fortunate to have this experience as a UTSA student," said Acosta, who is currently taking classes in public policy and advocacy while interning at the national non-profit Active Minds, Inc. in Washington, D.C.
When they are not busy studying and interning, Acosta and Hussain are exploring museums, monuments and the food scene.
"This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to not only study and intern in D.C. but to be involved in an important moment in our nation's history," said Acosta.
Donald J. Trump will take the presidential oath of office on Friday, January 20, 2017. There is a morning worship service, followed by a procession to the Capitol for the swearing-in ceremony, inaugural address, parade and a series of inaugural balls.
