Student Testimonial

"The Applied Learning Center has opened numerous doors for me.  I have pursued three internships through the program. As I am approaching graduation, I feel much more equipped for whatever jobs may come my way. The Applied Learning Center helped me to navigate the ins-and-outs of internships from building my resume to applying for academic credit.  My internships improved my technical skills and my soft skills.  I gained mentors who helped me to clarify my career path.  I gained professional references.  But best of all?  I gained friendships.  My internships not only provided insight into my future career path but also to who I am as a person and employee.
