Recent and not-so-recent alums chat with faculty and
discussed their current and future plans. We look
forward to this annual event.
Are you a
junior during the 2012-2013 academic year? The Newberry
Library offers competitive, paid summer internships. For
more information, see their information on their webpage
Newberry Library Undergraduate
Internships. Last year's interns worked with the Midwest
Modern Manuscripts, Rare Books, and Special Collections.
Internship opportunities at
Chicago Shakespeare Theater are designed to provide an
enriching, career-broadening experience for qualified
college and graduate students. The level of responsibility
and the ongoing workload of an ever-growing artistic
institution require that interns be highly motivated,
energetic and self-reliant. No housing is provided and
internships are unpaid.
