Scholarship honors MSU Denver's roots by helping students in need
MSU Denver students land internships with Fortune 150 companies
Charles Oyewole applied for a summer internship with Arrow Electronics, Inc., after being invited to a Diversity Day event and landed the opportunity of a lifetime. A student in the College of Business, Oyewole was not even sure who Arrow was when he was first invited to attend the event, but after doing a quick search, he realized it was more than just a small electronics store.
Amy Bechtum, career specialist in MSU Denver’s Office of Career Services, had been cultivating a relationship with Arrow for nearly a year. The company has a competitive program and hires about 150 interns each summer.
For Oyewole and other students, their internships have not only helped them gain professional experience, but they have also led to full-time jobs with Arrow.
A new public-private partnership with York Space Systems will expand opportunities for Advanced Manufacturing Sciences students. The company will move its headquarters into the school’s new Aerospace and Engineering Sciences Building this summer — manufacturing facility and all - providing for unique collaborations with faculty and students.
MSU Denver will host its Second Annual Summer Soiree on Saturday, June 10 on the front lawn of the Student Success Building at the Auraria Campus. Proceeds from the Summer Soiree will be dedicated to a scholarship fund in Steve and Ruthie’s name that will provide educational access and support to students at MSU Denver.
