Happy Holidays, I hope that everyone has an opportunity relax over the break. While relaxing , don’t forget to browse the various opportunities available for Real World Learning Experiences including work-based learning opportunities, internships, and summer enrichment programs such as St Albans School of Public Service. The St Alban’s application process is competitive choosing 40-45 rising seniors from around the country. Selected students will spend four weeks this summer in the heart of Washington, D.C., meeting Supreme Court justices and members of Congress and dissecting today’s pressing public policy issues. Alongside about 45 peers from around the country and the globe, you will be challenged to learn about the exciting world of public service, improve your public-speaking and critical-thinking skills, and begin to explore potential college and career paths.
It’s a great day to be a Lancer!
