How Did You Find Out About This Internship?: An email was sent out last semester promoting the internship for the spring semester.
What Has Been Your Most Favorite Part Of The Internship?: I really like the flexibility of the schedule and the independence I’m given in my projects.
What Has Been Your Most Challenging Part Of The Internship?: Being a science major, the transition between lab work and work in an office is different kinds of work, so adapting to the different kinds of work is both challenging and interesting.

Advice To Other Students Preparing For An Internship: Go into every day with a positive attitude and an open mind to make every day and project enjoyable. If you’re in a bad mood while you’re trying to learn and build new skills, it’s going to be harder to accomplish.
