Recently, the office of Institutional Research offered Mary-Francis a position as their communication intern. As a communication major the opportunity was one that she could not pass down. Mary Francis utilized career services and scheduled an appointment with a career counselor to learn about the internship opportunity and to get assistance with writing an effective resume and cover letter.

Mary-Francis is also active on campus as a CAB assistant for weekend events where she promotes and oversees events. She also is a technology crew member and helps to set up audio visual equipment for numerous events held on campus. Additionally, Mary-Francis has volunteered for organizations such as Fit Kids Fun Camp, Isaiah 58 and Jesus People USA.

Mary-Francis believes that "Career Services offers students a great opportunity by preparing them for a professional setting." She encourages students who have not taken advantage of career services, to visit and learn more about their many resources.
