The Washington Center offers internships to SU students

Gillian Anthony, a representative from The Washington Center (TWC), will be visiting Shippensburg University this Thursday, Oct. 11.

TWC offers several different types of internships, including semester-long internships in Washington, D.C., as well as a combined internship and study-abroad program in London, England.

In addition to the internships, TWC offers one- or two-week-long academic seminars.

Some of the internship programs it offers include international affairs, media and communications, criminal justice and science and technology, among others.

Internships are an important part of not only a student’s education, but also are a jumpstart to his or her future as well.

Internships allow one to learn more than what was already learned in his or her major, and integrate it in the actual business world.

According to TWC, a recent survey said 98 percent of its interns said the program significantly strengthened their career prospects.

Students who have participated in TWC’s internships have come from more than 1,000 colleges and universities across the world.

Anthony will host several general information sessions on Oct. 11 to inform SU students more of what TWC’s internships have to offer.

Anthony will be available in Dauphin Room 206 from 3:30-4:15 p.m., and from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in the Tuscarora Room. She will also be available in Reisner Dining Hall from 12:30-1:45 p.m.
