What I’ve Learned From My College Internship

This past spring, I spent the entire semester in Los Angeles participating in an internship-focused “abroad” program. The goal of an internship is to gain experience in a field you’re interested in, make connections, build your resume and hopefully have some fun along the way.

Prior to coming out here I'd had one small internship before, so this was my first truly immersed experience, and trust me, I’ve gotten a lot out of it. Here’s what I’ve learned.

Involvement not only helps you find experience that you can put on a resume but can also become a great way to make friends.

But what if, on top of all that, you're also working for a greater cause? Many colleges offer service organizations that allow you to do some good and get that experience you need.

The Media Maven: Finding a Husband in College

When I was in college, I would often heard girls jokingly say, “I’m giving up on my major and am just going to get my MRS degree.”

Hardly any of them meant what they said, but I’m sure there are quite a few girls out there that would jump at the chance to be whisked off their feet by a rich, smart, handsome man and be taken care of for the rest of their lives.

However, especially in this age of "girl power," many of us strong-willed ladies intend to finish college with a degree in something we are passionate about and then, in turn, obtain a full-time job doing something we love with that degree we all worked so hard for.

The 411 on Choosing a College Major

When it comes to choosing your major, I encourage you to delve into the future.
