WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “I loved reading the student blogs from the Summer Internship Program last year and found them extremely helpful. Hearing about everything from the intern’s professional lives to the discovery of new restaurants in their free time immediately convinced me that I wanted to be a part of the program. I’m very excited to have the chance to tell others about my summer experience and show what a Holy Cross education can do to prepare you for the real world.”
