I could go on and on about connections I made with staff and my peers through student activities and groups. Just the constant support I had through them gave me a family there even though my family was four hours away.
I can’t think of one school that provides students with the funds to complete an independent project or internship abroad. The Franklin Magellan Award allowed me to pursue things that I had always hoped to do for a better future. It’s one of the reasons I chose to come to W&J.
All of the science courses I have taken so far have given me more laboratory experience than some of my fellow interns. I also believe that my Magellan to Costa Rica last summer helped me get my internship.
I credit this opportunity to Dr. DeBerry and her class during JayTerm that helped tremendously with applying to science-related internships. I highly recommend it to all future students who are interested in finding a science-related internship.
W&J encourages students to get out of their comfort zone and try something they only dreamed of doing.
