No photo opportunities with lawmakers.
No scenes of photographers and reporters jockeying for position. No rush for live interviews on the cable networks.
It could have been a media circus - if the students wanted one. But they obviously did not.
"I only heard about their meetings after they happened," one colleague told me.
Like when this tweet suddenly appeared on Monday from House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi.
Asked about possible coverage of a meeting between one Democrat and the group of students on Tuesday, a press staffer had a simple explanation of why reporters weren't being told about the various meetings in the House and Senate.
"The students had asked us not to advise the meeting to press."
And so, the kids trooped around Capitol Hill on Monday and Tuesday, meeting with top leaders in both parties.
But most of that was seen only because of a photo here and there on social media.
Normally, a meeting like that would have drawn a crowded photo op, with photographers and reporters jockeying for position, or maybe a statement afterwards by those who had met with Speaker Paul Ryan.
But on this lobbying trip for the students, there were no news conferences.
No statements for the TV cameras, which were just down the hall in the Capitol.
Even for their meetings with Florida lawmakers, most of those Congressional offices stayed quiet.
As the students wrapped up their Tuesday visits on Capitol Hill, it didn't seem like their visit had changed the dynamic on how best to deal with gun violence.
But their message had been heard.
"Their pleas were heartfelt, and we had a most constructive conversation," said Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC).
