Colleges to Know

Bennington College https://www.bennington.edu/

Bennington College in Bennington, Vermont, is the only college in the US that requires students to have an annual internship. Bennington College is unique because undergraduate students work with graduate-style advisers to create a specialized academic plan. Also, according to US News, Bennington College students work with an organization or institution of their choice for two months every winter as part of the college's mandatory annual internship program — "the only college in the country to require an annual internship since its founding."

Please see the Naviance e-mail for ideas for what to be doing over Winter Break.
