Week 4:
I’ve Got This

Global Zero Fellow in Communication and International Policy

Global Zero | Washington, D.C.

July 25, 2017 | I’m at the halfway point in my internship, and yet I feel like I just arrived here last week. While I’m certainly more put-together than I was when I flew in June 26th, my list of activities and museums I want to see is still fairly long – I’ve barely scratched the surface! Extracurricular activities […]

Week 6:
Пока Россия! Until next time.

Jon & Jean Reynolds International Fellow in Russian Studies

SOAR International Ministries | Ryazan and Podolsk, Russia

July 25, 2017 |   As my internship comes to an end here in Podolsk, I must say goodbye to Russia again. Reflecting on everything I have learned, I am most grateful to have had this opportunity to come to know the Russian people. I have traveled to five different cities in Russia before, but I have always been […]

Week 10:
Saying Goodbye to Hobcaw Barony

Rogers Fellow in Environmental Studies

Baruch Institute for Marine & Coastal Sciences | Georgetown, South Carolina

July 25, 2017 | Like I promised in the previous blog here is the photo from the cookout. Monday Morning we were set to help Dr. Allen and Dr. Harding with their elevation survey.  However, it was storming so we skipped that and went out into the creek to change out some old equipment.  The tide was really low […]

Week 6:
Data, More Data, and the Zoo

Mansfield Foundation Fellow in Research (In memory of Merlin "Pat" Dreibelbis '39)

Children's Hospital Colorado | Aurora, Colorado

July 23, 2017 | As usual, my week was filled primarily with data entry. I am close to getting done so I should finish next week. Aside from the thrill of data entry, I was able to get another shadowing opportunity. Outside of work, I got to explore Denver and Boulder a little bit more. This week, I was […]

Week 8:
A Little Bit of Everything

Arthur Vining Davis Fellow in Clinical Research

University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics | Iowa City, Iowa

July 22, 2017 | This week I’ve been doing a lot of different things. I started the week off sitting in on a participant visit for the first time in what seems like a while. It was a short visit, with just mood and mania scales, but it was nice to see a participant that I have seen three times […]

Week 8:
Butterfly Life Cycles and Den Digging

Black Fellow in Wildlife Research & Conservation

North American Bear Center | Ely, Minnesota

July 21, 2017 | This week started out with high hopes of seeing the Northern Lights.  There was a large solar storm and it was predicted that the Northern Lights could be seen as far south as Illinois and Iowa.  We (the interns) were giddy with excitement- we were finally going to see the Northern Lights!  All other possibilities […]

Week 7:
What Is It Like to Work In the Industry?

July 21, 2017 | The past week I was mainly busy with different creative projects, while working on some modifications for a commercial real estate model. I had to make some cosmetic changes to the real estate spreadsheet: I re-organized the spreadsheet and made it easier to use by putting options for various inputs and parameters in the first […]

Week 5:
Further Exploring the Field of Psychiatry

Wallman Fellow in Neurology & Medicine

Mayo Clinic | Rochester, Minnesota

July 20, 2017 | This week, I had a change of pace and was able to shadow Dr. Vande Voort in the adolescent psychiatry unit. I went into this a bit nervous because I was uncertain of what to expect. The patient care team started by meeting for morning report and speaking about each of the patients. We then […]

Week 7:
Saying Goodbye to My Beloved Second Home

Chaffin International Fellow in Music Education & Therapy

Sistema Nacional de Música para Niños Especiales (SINAMUNE) | Quito, Ecuador

July 19, 2017 | This was it. My final week in my beloved Ecuador. Thanks to this trip, I had experienced so many firsts, acclimated to a new culture, taught music to students every day, and made big improvements in my Spanish.   While saying goodbye, I started to reflect on my trip. My mind started contemplating my personal […]

Week 5:
Exploring Colorado

Mansfield Foundation Fellow in Research (In memory of Merlin "Pat" Dreibelbis '39)

Children's Hospital Colorado | Aurora, Colorado

July 18, 2017 | Another week of data entry has passed, marking the half way mark of my time in Colorado. I can’t believe five weeks have gone by so quickly! Everyone warned me how time would fly, but I didn’t really believe them. There is so much I still want to do and see, so I hope to […]
