In the summer of 2013, many of our students were off working in interesting internships around the country and around the world. Below are postings from some of our students involved with internships through two of our programs: Lawrence Scholars in Business and Conservatory2.

It’s the end of July now and I am wrapping up my internship with the Center for Deep Listening at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, NY. I have learned so much throughout my time here – I have become more familiar with Deep Listening philosophy and techniques by participating in an Introduction to Deep … Continue reading Center for Deep Listening – Connecting my internship to academics – Sarah Clewett

Weill Music Institute – Connecting my internship to academics – Becca Shuman

Sat, 08/01/2015 - 8:37am
This internship has been really interesting for me precisely because it’s so different from what I normally do. As a music education major, I’ve spent the last four years of my life studying pedagogy, learning to play the different instruments, practicing conducting, and teaching in schools. And yet here at Carnegie Hall, my job is … Continue reading Weill Music Institute – Connecting my internship to academics – Becca Shuman

“How does this experience connect with your academic experience?” This is a very interesting question because, unlike most tech schools, at Lawrence we barely get any exposure to real software engineering. And that’s how the Lawrence CS program is meant to be. At Lawrence we learn the fundamentals and theory so well that we can … Continue reading Facebook – Connecting my internship to academics – Eddie Elizondo

Mon, 07/20/2015 - 7:29pm
After having been at the Center for Deep Listening in Troy, NY, for about a month now, I can say that this summer has been such a great learning experience for me. My main internship project has been to archive the many boxes of artifacts and media that have been sent from the center’s old … Continue reading Center for Deep Listening – My first month – Sarah Clewett

Facebook – My first month – Eddie Elizondo

Sat, 07/18/2015 - 5:36pm
So I’ve been 4 weeks into my internship. I’ve delivered more than a thousand lines of code and the initial stress is starting to kick in. The system is so big, complex and intricate that it gets a bit overwhelming. Furthermore, we are the first company to have such a system. No other company in … Continue reading Facebook – My first month – Eddie Elizondo

Weill Music Institute – My first month – Becca Shuman

Thu, 07/16/2015 - 5:21pm
​The past month here at WMI has been a wonderful, fast-paced (and at times overwhelming) whirlwind. Between feeling more comfortable in this huge city and settling into the rhythm of this organization, I feel like I’m starting to find my place. I’ve been doing all sorts of things here with my department, which has given … Continue reading Weill Music Institute – My first month – Becca Shuman

Facebook – First impressions of my internship – Eddie Elizondo

Tue, 06/30/2015 - 5:30pm
My first impression at Facebook was just shock. The first day, we are flown to the heart of silicon valley, in Menlo Park, CA. Arriving there the first thing you see is the 1 Hacker Way (Facebook’s Address) and this gigantic campus. Once you get the security clearance, you finally enter the campus and the … Continue reading Facebook – First impressions of my internship – Eddie Elizondo

​I’ve only been working at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI) for about a week now, but I can already say that it is one of the most fun, fulfilling, and meaningful jobs I’ve ever had. WMI is the education and community outreach department of Carnegie Hall, and they do simply amazing things. This department … Continue reading Weill Music Institute – Internship first impressions – Becca Shuman

Center for Deep Listening – First impressions of my internship – Sarah Clewet

Mon, 06/29/2015 - 6:52pm
The Center for Deep Listening Internship has already been a wonderful experience! My first shock was the terrain as I am an “Illinois flatlander” and the campus of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute sits on top of this giant hill that overlooks the city of Troy, NY. I arrived a day before my internship started, so I … Continue reading Center for Deep Listening – First impressions of my internship – Sarah Clewet
