As our friends and colleagues experience the mixed emotions of another school year coming to an end, we at Northwestern try to stay focused and determined to stick it out for another month.
Ah yes, the quarter system. Northwestern like a few of our neighbors (U of Chicago and DePaul) are not on a traditional semester academic calendar. Instead we are currently in the midterm of our Spring Quarter. With the beautiful weather, the desire to wear shorts and sandals daily and the messages we see from friends about their summers starting- we can’t help but be anxious to be done with the 2011-2012 academic year as well.
Just like the anticipation you may feel for a movie premiere while watching the movie trailer, many Northwestern students, faculty and staff are looking forward to this upcoming summer. And we at University Career Services are very excited for the students who have found some great internships to experience this summer. So just like the blockbuster summer movies we are all waiting to come to the theaters (insert Batman), we’re also waiting to hear all the stories of career development from our Summer Interns. See below for the Northwestern Summer Interns Preview. (Special thanks to the NU students that let me videotape them at their internships- Blair, John, Chris, Matt and Sarah)
