No Rest for Spring Breakers

Eleven students volunteered for the 2015 Intelligence Career Seminar in Washington, D.C. during their Spring Break. They paid their own expenses and visited seven federal agencies in four days to explore student and career opportunities. The activity was optional for students enrolled in Fundamentals of National Security, in a combined section with the graduate-level National Security Essentials. These courses partially fulfill requirements for the Undergraduate or Graduate Certificate in National Security Studies at the Jack D. Gordon Institute for Public Policy and Citizenship Studies. The eight undergraduates and three graduate students received briefings at the Defense Intelligence Agency, Homeland Security Intelligence Training Academy, Treasury Office of Intelligence and Analysis (where they met an FIU alum), National Geospatial-intelligence Agency (where they met an FIU alumna), Central Intelligence Agency (where they spoke with an FIU alumna), Marine Corps Intelligence Activity and Federal Bureau of Investigations National Academy.
