What They Did on their Summer 'Vacation'
There may have been a time when summer break was for fun and relaxation, but for graduate students of public affairs, summertime is mostly filled with hard work and internships. Humphrey School of Public Affairs students returning to campus for fall semester have stories to share about exciting internships in Minnesota, Washington, DC, around the United States, and in other countries.
Many students say internships are one of the most important parts of their academic experience, providing hands-on experience and, in some cases, opportunities for employment after graduation.
We caught up with a few such students and asked them how they spent their summers.
