On a sticky morning in New Orleans, Cameron Quincy Todd walked into the Cornstalk Hotel, the 65th property she has visited in six months. She didn’t look ragged after a long journey, and she wasn’t carrying any luggage.

Your child is off to college, thinking of career paths. You want a major that will lead to a fulfilling, financially stable job, but there’s so much else to explore. Can a future chemist gain insight from a class called “20th Century American History”? Will a film major make use of the lessons found in “Environment and Health”? We asked successful Washingtonians what college experiences helped in their eventual careers.
