Close Up is a positive experience for students…
seeing themselves as having the power to influence the democratic process.
Close Up was the GREATEST experience of my life!..
It has inspired me to become a political leader in this great country. I have not only gained an even greater expansion of knowledge in the area of politics, but I have also gained lifelong friends.
This is a GREAT way to experience other places…

the entire notion no longer seemed obscure. I became very involved in politics on the local and national level.
