Leavitt Internship Panel

The Michael O. Leavitt Center for Politics and Public Service provided students with an opportunity to find out more information about internship opportunities with a panel of fellow students who had completed internship through the Leavitt Center.

Leavitt Center Executive Council member Ryan Robinson moderated the panel of four SUU students. SUU students Jordan Call, Victoria Stephens, D’Mia Lamar and Lily Shurtleff were asked questions regarding the application process, how to find housing for specific internships, what the day to day of an internship looks like and the benefits of doing an internship.

Every panelist agreed that their respective internship was a huge benefit to their time here at SUU and to their growth and progress toward their chosen field of study. They also shared their least favorite parts of their responsibilities–giving students a real glimpse into the life of an intern.

The internships the panelists participated in ranged from the 5th District Court here in Cedar City to the State Capitol in Salt Lake City to Congressional internships in Washington, DC. Students were able to hear the benefits that a local, state, and federal internship can provide.

If you are interested in an internship opportunity, visit the Leavitt Center located in the Sharwan Smith Student Center to learn more.
