Washington Center Internships

fn:Michael P. Griffin

CCB Students and Faculty:

Patsy Torres, Program Coordinator, Institutional Relations from The
Washington Center ( will be visiting our campus to provide
our students with information regarding internship opportunities in
Washington, D.C. and abroad. The information session will be on Monday,
February 9, 3-4:30pm in the Library Browsing Area. She will also attend
the Study Abroad Fair on February 9 to promote their summer intern
abroad program in Sydney, London, Oxford, and Quebec City.

I have witnessed, first-hand, the workings of the Washington Center.
They run a very impressive program. For business students, TWC will
work to find internships in the DC area relevant to a business student's
major. We have had finance students working for companies like Merrill
Lynch and federal agencies like the U.S. Treasury Department in DC.
Students have also been placed in nonprofits in the DC area and they
participate in some very interesting workshops and courses.
