Today is the last day to submit an application for an affiliated internship and be confident that it will be approved in time to start on May 14th. If you have already submitted your paperwork, we will process it and do everything possible to get your internship approved. If you have not already submitted your paperwork, it may still be possible.

This year, approval of affiliations has gone much faster than in past years. This will allow me to accept applications until May 1st. That will be the absolute deadline for submitting paperwork. We will have to stop at that time in order to set up sections of COMM 493.

Dr. Lenze will be out for the rest of the day due to illness. If you need to speak with him, stop by tomorrow after 11 pm.

Final Days

There are a few internships still available in Indiana, PA. But, April 16th is the final day to submit an internship application. After that, we will no longer accept any applications.

If you were hoping to graduate and were unable to find an internship, you should stop by and discuss your options.

The Washington Center

I visited The Washington Center on Friday for the first time and I was very impressed with their organization, housing, classrooms, and access to top tier internship sites! I was informed that even though the deadline for applications has passed, they may still be able to accept some interns and there may even be some scholarship money yet available. No promises but worth meeting with Diane Stipchak in Pratt Hall at the Center for Career and Professional Development.

Remember, if you are paying for housing this summer, TWC is actually cheaper than other internships. All internships through TWC are already affiliated. The deadline for all application is April 16. Call today!
