Their First Steps: A Tour of TSPA DC

Elena understands that she is the first thing potential students see and is their first impression of the school, and she seeks to make it a great one! With the help of Shewit, the front desk coordinator, Elena gives newcomers an inside look at their potential future.

Shewit schedules tours and Elena spends a majority of her day showing people around the school, getting to know future students, and ensuring their comfort. The feedback she receives is that students love the beautiful campus in the middle of the city near the train station. “If they were nervous, usually by the end they are fine!”.
