The financial aid process is the worst! Please don't send anything buy mail, and if you do make sure you staple all your documents together. The people who are working there have a tendency of getting too caught up that they tend to lose stuff. Although they are nice and show respect, it doesn't help the fact that they will argue you down for stating you never turned in a document. Also, there is no explanation on how about getting these documents. It's a painful process but the job gets done. The best thing to do is turn everything in yourself, and thoroughly check in for your status.

Hit the City! Nightlife on the campus of UDC is almost nil since there is no on-campus housing. However, DC has some awesome neighborhoods that cater to young people. Adams Morgan, H Street, Florida Avenue, Georgetown, and Dupont Circle are some of the &quot;hottest.&quot; This city beats out just about any other city on the Eastern seaboard for nightlife. Check it though: This city has a lot of clubs, bars, pubs and restaurants that are in dangerous neighborhoods. A lot of college kids forget that and there are many city kids and thugs who bring the smack down on drunk 19-year-olds who &quot;wander&quot; a little too far. Cross the Anacostia River and you might as well bring a gun too; a lot of kids from Howard and UDC forget this.

At the Community College location, Union Station is just a few blocks away. Since it is a transportation port (ie Megabus, Amtrak, Greyhound) they have quite a variety of restaurants with any option to tantalize your taste buds! From Chipotle to Subways to Au Bon Pain to Uno's to McDonalds, I'm pretty sure you'll find something inbetween your classes!
