Campus Tours
Howard University
Around Town

Washington, DC is a city of large open spaces, public gardens, admission-free museums, and monuments honoring politicians, poets, and those who served in domestic and foreign conflicts. Like most big cities, it is hard to visit all of Washington, DC's points of interest on foot. The best way to explore some of these is to take a tour. And that's what six Howard University students did on one sunny and warm day in July. Take a look.
