Washington Internships to Be Discussed Nov. 5

Nov. 2, 1998

Baylor University students can learn about Washington, D.C., internships during a general orientation session at 3:30 p.m. Thursday in the White-Beckham Room of the Bill Daniel Student Center. Refreshments will be served, and former interns will be present to describe their experiences and answer questions. All Baylor students, regardless of major, are eligible for the internship program.

Washington interns can earn three semester hours of credit by completing the internship. Participants must attend a series of orientation sessions prior to the internship and the Baylor Poage/Mayborn Seminar held in Washington for two days during the first week of June. Students must intern for at least five weeks.

In recent years, Baylor students have interned for such government agencies as the FBI, Smithsonian Institution, The White House and Department of the Air Force. Internships also are available in the private sector for organizations such as the Baptist Joint Committee, the Republican National Committee, the Sierra Club and the Heritage Foundation.
