A liberal arts education gives University of Michigan students a good BALANCE of skills to apply in the work force! :D Take a look at our Internship Program Student Assistant Danielle, @danielletondreauyoga, rocking our famous #HubCap and working on her balance! She has access to the academic and professional resources necessary for obtaining internships that interest students that come to her during office hours. She helps students navigate opportunities found in the LSA Opportunity Network and more! . You can visit Danielle or any of our wonderful advisers during office hours M/Tu/W 2pm-4pm and Th/F 12pm-2pm! . This summer Danielle will be taking the skills she has built throughout her liberal arts education to support a new community based business, Sangha Experience. She is overjoyed to have been offered a role in which her passions for philosophy and community development can coincide, and she largely has LSA to thank in it equipping her for such a professional position. If you have a passion similar to Danielle's, check out the company's Instagram @sanghaexperience, or come by the Hub to talk to her!
Melanie spent her summer in Dublin interning for a member of the lower house of parliament (The lower house is known as the Dáil Èireann, and parliament is called the Houses of the Oireachtas)! Read about her amazing experience and come by our office to find out how you can have your own internship adverture this summer! . . Ireland is a much, much smaller country than the U.S., there is a greater emphasis put on local politics. It seems to be (in my opinion) that for representatives of the lower house (they are called T.D.s), being connected to their constituency is much more significant here than it is to House Representatives in the U.S. My T.D.’s Parliamentary Assistant said that in Ireland they operate under a system of “pot hole politics” where the people notice more when the representative accomplishes something like fixing a pot hole than they notice if the representative has pushed important legislation through Parliament.
Didn't get a chance to catch us at the @umichlsa Major/Minor Expo? No worries! We have office hours everyday of the week outside our office on the first floor of the LSA Building. Today we met freshman @millie_macdonald and she told us what her liberal arts education means to her! I want to get into science research just because genetics is so relevant in out society right now. I want to be working with people; I don’t want to be stuck in a lab. I want it to be a personal job. I don’t want to just isolate my one side of my brain, I want to get that cross-disciplinary between the arts and sciences.” #LSAHub #goblue
It may have stopped snowing, but that wind isn't letting up! Luckily @ayy_grayson has her #HubCap on to keep her warm😊 Stop by our office on the first floor of the LSA building to learn about applying your liberal arts education to a sweet internship this summer! OR Come speak to our lovely model, Amanda, about the India Internship Initiative within Global Opportunities through the #Hub! @uofmichigan #goblue
Claire J spent her summer in Tirana, Albania interning with the National Coastal Authority of Albania. With help from the #LSAHub, Claire was able to experience a life-changing summer while gaining college credit! Come visit us to find out how to do the same! The most wonderful parts of a journey are those that are unexpected, filled with the most wonderful people met under the most random of circumstances. Without these individuals that I met in Albania and elsewhere in Europe, my own self-discovery that has taken place this summer would not have been possible. -Claire J
