Student Experiences

"I had two internships where I managed social media pages, created content, wrote newsletters, designed graphics, and coordinated with both of my organizations’ teams to learn and develop my skills in the short time I was in D.C. These experiences taught me how to communicate in a professional manner and helped me develop my own interests. They also showed me how to manage my time in an effective way and how to work with a team while developing and operating different projects.  Students should participate in the UCDC program not only for the valuable professional experiences it provides but also for the personal growth that happens during this program."

"I have gained valuable professional development experience that could not be replicated solely by taking classes at my home campus. For example, my resume and cover letter went through several iterations during the intership search process. I feel that I can better conduct myself over Zoom and in a room full of professionals. I learned how to advocate for myself in the work environment and feel prepared for the next internship or job that I take on."
