On the Job

Opportunities abound for students to gain professional experience.
  • Marisol Jenkins ’15 participates in the weeklong entrepreneurship workshop during Winterim 2013.

Our students draw on rich academic and professional experiences as they prepare for successful careers. Opportunities take many shapes here: from full-time research assistantships in the Rogers Summer Science Program to work-study positions and internships on and off campus. 

The experience of Marisol Jenkins ’15, a psychology major from California, shows just how varied the possibilities are. In addition to gaining valuable training through her work-study position in the Office of Conferences and Events, Marisol developed entrepreneurial skills during Winterim 2013 and gained strengthened leadership abilities as a member of the planning committee for the 2012 Ray Warren Multicultural Symposium.
