Call for Story Tips on Student Summer Internships


With the spring semester nearly complete, many of our students are poised to begin summer internships and experiences next month. Southeast’s University Communications 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 with the St. Louis Advertising Club Internship Hop, the Mark Morris Dance Group’s Dance for Parkinson’s Disease (PD) ®, the Medical University of South Carolina Summer Undergraduate Research Program, Archer Daniels Midland Company, U.S. Bank Corporate, Cedar Point Amusement Park, Oneida Community Mansion, a therapeutic boarding school for at-risk teens, a rice farm startup and the Baltimore Ravens.

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, in sporting venues, in hospitality management settings or with interior design firms? 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 University Communications 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, submit their information at
