“Can we go home now?” Erin Slifka, of Oak Lawn, laughed. “We love each other but we’ve been together for twelve days.”

A tired but thrilled group of Saint Xavier students and one professor climbed off their airport shuttle today after spending the last week and a half in Washington, D.C. for the Presidential Inauguration.

The nine students spent the week at the Washington Center attending public affairs seminars before slowly making their way onto the National Mall.
