Senior Michael Downs has recently put to use what he has learned as a Communication major to his internship with Eastern Connecticut State University's University Relations department! As a Special Events Intern, Michael's responsibilities involved conducting research and planning events for the 125th Anniversary of Eastern Celebration that took place throughout the semester.


"It's been so interesting to learn about the history of Eastern through the research that I've been doing," mentions Michael. "It's been really interesting to learn about how far this institution has come since its inception in 1889."


Through completing this internship, Michael has acquired many useful skills, such as how to correctly and effectively gather research; that he says will be essential to my future career. He has also learned valuable writing skills that will not only be useful to his future career path, but in graduate school as well.


To any other internship hopefuls, Michael's advice for you is to start your internship search early, so you can find the perfect opportunity just as Michael has done!
