After the Tennessee Tuesday event, our group went to the Pentagon for an hour-long tour of the massive building as well as a brief meeting with a Vanderbilt alum who works there. The day was capped-off by a group dinner at California Pizza Kitchen.

Toward the end of July the VIEW cohort took a break from a summer of hard work to enjoy a beautiful tuesday in DC. We convened bright and early at the Metro stop near the apartments and headed off to the senate office building for Tennessee Tuesday, a monthly event hosted by Tennessee Senators Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander. The event is open to the public and intended to provide Tennessee residents with the opportunity to speak with their Senators and their staff. However, most of the visitors seemed interested in taking pictures with the Senators rather than discussing policy. Our group was no exception and we were more than happy to take a group picture with Senators Corker and Alexander.
