Call for Story Tips on Student Summer Internships

coltenpeterson_wtdwed300x300With the spring semester nearly over, many of our students are poised to begin summer internships and experiences next month. The Southeast News Bureau is seeking tips on interesting feature stories about fascinating, competitive, unusual or high-tech internships or experiences Southeast students will be engaged in over the summer.

Their stories will be featured on the University website, in social media and in regional media outlets throughout the summer months.

Last summer’s stories included students interning at NASA’s Student Airborne Research Program, Walt Disney World Resort’s Epcot Center, Maritz sales and marketing company, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, the Michael Howard Student Studios’ Summer Conservatory, Wells Fargo Advisors Student wtdwed_briannavoelker300x300Leadership Institute, Migrant Summer School Program, New York Lyric Opera Theatre’s (NYLOT) Summer Music Program, a maritime museum and in the office of a U.S. Senator.

Do you know of students who are interning abroad this summer? Do you know students who are interning in Washington, D.C.? Do you know of students engaged in scientific or agricultural research? Are you aware of any students interning for major corporations in cybersecurity, finance, marketing, accounting, management, etc.? Do we have students exploring entrepreneurial ventures? Do we have students completing dietetic internships or students interning in health care settings or in sporting venues? Are there any Southeast students interning for theatre companies, in manufacturing related areas or in historic preservation settings? Are there student teachers who have recently completed their semester’s work in area schools who we might highlight?

These are the types of stories in which the News Bureau is interested, although we are open to any other ideas you might be able to offer. If you are aware of any students in your college or department who you would like to see featured, please email their names, contact information (email address and cell number) and background about their upcoming experience to Ann Hayes at ahayes@semo.edu.
