Ag Student Receives "Real World" Experience With Internships

March 31, 2010


The College of Agricultural Sciences provides its students with numerous internship opportunities.  Internships are a way for students to in gain "real world" experience or explore different careers.  Kathleen Carmack, a senior in plant and soil science, has taken advantage of two internships during her undergraduate career.  Carmack stated she was fortunate to land two internships in which she was given important responsibilities, and which she gleaned valuable insights into her profession.  Carmack states, "It's a win win-situation for both people ... For the interns, it's a good way to get our foot in the door with them, and for them, we're helping them out for doing that."  To learn more about internships possibilities, visit the Student Affairs Office in the Room 117 at the College of Agricultural Sciences.
