The College of Idaho CEL hosts Internship Info Night

Benjamin Franklin once said, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” And this fall, students looking to get involved in a real-life application of the skills they are learning at The College of Idaho are encouraged to come out to Internship Information Night, hosted by the C of I Center for Experiential Learning (CEL) at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 27 in Boone Hall room 103.

Students will have the opportunity to network and facilitate conversations with business professionals and potential internship hosts. Local business leaders will learn about the C of I’s unique PEAK Curriculum, which challenges students to earn one major and three minors in four years, and will have the chance to meet students who are searching for internships and future career opportunities.

“This event is designed for students to be able to make meaningful connections leading to future internships and even employment,” said Nicole Cammann, C of I PEAK Center coordinator. “By coming to the Internship Information Night, the goal is that students can network with local employers and hear what they’re looking for in the job market today.”
