Here’s what a recent intern had to say about the experience:

“It’s been invaluable experience for me the semester before I head out into the real world and the work force. The value that is gained from this internship, especially for those marketing students who may want to go down the sales path, is immeasurable. They, like I did, will leave this position a better professional for the future.” –Adam Hall, marketing major, 2017 VSU Alum
