The European Union Simulation is the culmination of a semester-long class studying the European Union Organization and its functions. Every year, 156 students and 15 faculty representing 12 colleges and universities meet in the Georgetown area of Washington, D.C., to take part in the three-day simulation.
Participating schools research their particular country's interests in the union in order to represent that country at the simulation. The simulation involves meetings of the EU Council, two parliamentary committees, and two Councils of Ministers. During the three days in D.C., students have the opportunity to visit the embassy of the country that they represented in the simulation.
