W&J really helped me prepare for a project of this magnitude by providing resources, including help from other students and the professors.
W&J encourages students to get out of their comfort zone and try something they only dreamed of doing.
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.
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.
Without the extra push from W&J, I would not have prioritized an internship as highly as I did. This allowed me to step outside my comfort zone and have great experience. I know I’m working toward what I want to do.
