Internships provide an opportunity for students to work in a business, agency, or organization and implement what they are learning in their program to real-world experiences. Students will also learn about the company’s culture, and meet decision-makers within the organization who may provide valuable insights into your future career. During the internship experience, students work alongside professionals at the business and are mentored by supervisors. Students are often assigned to special projects that align with their areas of interest and provide a platform to put what they have learned in the classroom into practice. Additionally, internships may often lead to full-time employment for students as businesses may consider the internship an extended interview for post-graduate employment.

There are several ways in which students may volunteer on campus and be part of creating a positive social change in their communities. Volunteering can enrich students learning by providing opportunities to enrich experiences, gain valuable work experience, networking, give a sense of purpose and expose you to opportunities you may never knew existed.
