Go Western.

For the past few months, I have been on the search for a summer internship in Student Affairs.  My search criteria was to find an institution that offered housing for the summer, allowed me to work in a professional supervisory role, and was outside of my comfort zone in some way-Y’all know how adventurous I am and how important new experiences are to me.

I applied through a national organization called ACUHO-I and have been interviewing for a few weeks with institutions across the nation.  Yesterday was Internship Offer Day and I am excited to announce that I have been offered and have accepted a position for the summer.

I will be working with Residence Life and Conference Services at Western State Colorado University and will be moving to Gunnison in May.  I couldn’t be more excited to be working in my first professional role, in a Colorado mountain town, at a small, public, liberal arts university.

Let’s just say the rest of this school year is going to drag as I anxiously await my next big adventure.

I’m headed back to the mountains…and am going to be a Mountaineer!

Onto the next big thing!
