Here are some comments from a few of our interns:

John Stevenson, a Journalism major, worked with his supervisor, Greg Russell, at the Publication's Office at the University of Memphis.

"Up to this point in my internship, I have been writing an article for the alumni quarterly magazine about the Sustainable Campus Fee, commonly known as the Green Fee. I am highlighting a few of the green initiatives that are being funded by the Green Fee this semester such as the Adopt-a-Street program that involves students cleaning the area between Patterson and Highland streets. So far, I have been working on improving both my writing and interviewing skills, two skills that are vital components of this position. I look forward to all the experiences that the remainder of the semester brings." -John Stevenson

 

Leslie Garrison, an Education major, interned at the Lipman School at the University of Memphis.

“I started off by observing each class; from Pre-School 1 to Kindergarten. When I first was introduced to everybody and given some examples on what I could do throughout the semester it seem like it was going to be a little challenging, being that I had not taken any of my education classes beside LEAD. So it was like a fresh start not knowing where to start. In other words I had not taken any classes that will prepare me for the internship. However, there are some helpful people at Lipman and I am learning as I move throughout the semester. I am currently in IDT, so now I have an idea on how to make a lesson plan. The good thing is while teaching the students about Sustainability I am learning also. Overall, my internship is going well. I am looking forward to all of the other experiences and learning new things throughout the rest of the semester!” –Leslie Garrison
