FSE Neighborhood Breakdown
Washington, D.C. is comprised of four major quadrants: the Northwest, the Northeast, the Southwest, and the Southeast. Within each of those quadrants, they are further divided into 8 wards and then further into Advisory Neighborhood Commissions. However as a means of allowing incoming students to learn about areas other than Tenleytown and surrounding areas, the Freshman Service Experience breaks the district into 5 areas which are: Southeast, Northeast, U Street/Shaw, Columbia Heights/Mount Pleasant/Adams Morgan, and Downtown/Eastern Market.
