Come learn from staff, students, and community partners about how to have a successful internship experience! This workshop series is presented by the Haas Center for Public Service in part to help you prepare for Cardinal Quarter experiences, or any internship you’re planning for summer. Each workshop is offered twice per week to accommodate your schedule, on Tuesdays from 4:30-5:20pm and Wednesdays from 12:30-1:20pm in the Haas Center’s DK Room. Snacks and/or lunch will be served.
If you want to take the entire series for a unit of credit, please sign up for EARTHSYS 9/HUMBIO 9/URBANST 101/ARTSINST 40/PUBLPOL 74/EDUC 9 on Axess.
Explore the many Cardinal Courses that may be relevant as you prepare for your summer experience, or as options for future quarters after returning from your summer experience.
