Students identified positive aspects of this placement:

  • Most everyone seemed warm and welcoming. This internship becomes what you make it so you can come out with a lot of motivational skills you never thought you had. If you network yourself well, you can observe a lot of units in a two-month span. Let people know you're interested and ask questions! (2001)
  • Experienced a wide range of activities. (1994)

Students identified difficulties in this placement:

The most difficult thing I saw was if you weren't very interested in making your internship successful then you'll just end up answering phones for the remainder of your hours. (2001)
