Recent Student Intern Experiences

“My speech language pathology internship at Kids Can Do and the McDowell Wellness Center allowed me to see varying styles of speech therapy. I was able to shadow, assist with therapy, and devise applicable treatments for patients. This experience gave me insight into treating different populations and further assisted me with my career goals.”
Anna Fuller ’13 • Psychology Major

“My experience with the Neuroscience Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was great. It gave me the opportunity to see what graduate school in neuroscience might be like, and I was able to get hands-on experience with much of what I have learned in my classes at Centre.”
