First Year Experience Program Intern 2014/2015
“At Mitchell, I enjoyed a yearlong internship with the First Year Experience office. In this short time, I had many great opportunities including supervising undergraduate students, redeveloping a mentoring program, and getting to co-facilitate a course for student leaders. This was a rich experience that I will be able to use as I continue in the field. I also learned from great mentors here who I hope to keep in contact with in future years. I was very lucky to have this experience at Mitchell and would recommend others to come and intern with this welcoming community!”
Career Services Intern 2013/2014
“While I was a fulltime graduate student in the College Student Personnel program at the University of Rhode Island, I interned for a year at Mitchell College in the Career Services Office. This internship provided me with training, practical experience including the opportunity to work with students one-on-one and to develop new programs for Career Services, and professional development opportunities. I would recommend interning at Mitchell because it is an inclusive environment that fosters mentoring relationships among interns and supervisors. My supervisor encouraged me to get involved in the Mitchell community outside of Career Services and recommended specific professional organizations for networking opportunities. I was elated to accept a fulltime position at Mitchell College following my yearlong internship.”
