I was responsible for...
As an intern at Admissions Early Outreach, I help my supervisors plan events (such as campus visits) and outreach visits for middle school-aged students. I also engage in giving tours for these groups, as well as facilitating their activities.

I accomplished...
My greatest accomplishments are the documents I have created that are "living", meaning, they will be utilized by future interns and staff because they are pertinent for the obligations of the office. They will also be changed/added upon in the future.

I learned...
From this experience, I learned that both quality and time-sensitivity are vital for the productiveness of an office setting. In other words, assignments must be completed quickly, but well-done.

Advice for others...
My advice for future students would be to avoid taking any classes in the semester of which you complete your internship.

Submit your experience!
