What is Explore DC?

EDC service project

Explore DC (EDC) is a multi-day experience that includes service with nonprofits, exploration of neighborhoods, DC history and culture and evening programming for incoming first-year and transfer students at American University. It is part of AU All American Welcome, sponsored by the Center for Community Engagement and Service. Explore DC gives new students a chance to acclimate to their new home through logistical issues like transportation and food, and to learn about how the city works by exploring the burning issues faced by community members, and to be exposed to some of the cultural and historical resources that exist.
