WASHINGTON, D.C. – With only a few days left until the Iowa Caucus, six Georgetown University students are heading to Iowa tomorrow, Friday, January 31 to get a behind-the-scenes look at the processes and politics at play behind the first caucus of 2020. This trip is being organized by the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service (GU Politics) at the McCourt School of Public Policy.
While in Iowa, students will visit campaign headquarters, attend campaign events, and speak to a variety of journalists, officials, and organizers on the ground. They will witness first-hand the energy and effort behind today’s political campaigns, learn about the traditions and recent innovations in the caucus process, and visit multiple precinct locations on caucus night.
Our #HoyasInIA cohort will create videos and articles throughout these four days for the GU Politics website and share their experiences live across GU Politics social channels (@gupolitics). They will return to campus on Tuesday, February 4.
