I feel that my internship was a meaningful position where I got to make a real difference in the College. It was very stimulating work  that was both fun and challenging. I got to meet many different people within the College and outside in the community. I would  recommend a similar experience to other interns because it provides a much greater understanding of how sustainability really  works in a post-secondary institution than what you can learn in a classroom.
