Learning the ropes

By ABBY WILSON ’10

From hanging out with Tony the Tiger to acting at the whim of a child’s imagination, from being the first to see manuscripts that will be published, to cataloguing information about Watergate, Bradley students lived across the nation this summer, applying skills they learned in the classroom at various internships. Sixteen of those students shared their experiences in “Journals from the Road,” a blog on Bradley’s Web site that allows faculty, staff, and students to share their stories as they travel.

More than 350 Bradley students registered internships with the Smith Career Center’s Bill and Marjorie Springer Center for Excellence in Internships this summer, and the Career Center expected to hear from more when the school year began. Students from all five colleges, as well as the Graduate School, interned at companies ranging from the Richard M. Nixon Presidential Library and Museum to Atlantic Records.
