The Hill Visits are held with either with Maryland's, elected Congressional Representative or key staff members, depending upon their schedules. (If you are familiar with the Visits, just RSVP Here)

Please note logistics: Transportation is “On Your Own” and the Metro is the best way to get there! Cabs also are always available from the Marriott Wardman to Capitol Hill, however, please give yourself ample time for travel because the cab lines can be long.    Map links for both the Metro and the Capitol Hill campus are below.
