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.

Students getting ready for life after Lawrence... Summer Interns

Navigant Consulting – Reflecting on the end of my internship – Adam McDonald

Wed, 09/14/2016 - 4:01pm
My internship with Navigant was an incredible experience that would not have been possible without my Lawrence education. Working as a consultant required critical and quick thinking, analytical skills, and the ability to communicate effectively. Every course at Lawrence, as well as extracurriculars, have helped to hone my communication skills while my focus in Economics … Continue reading Navigant Consulting – Reflecting on the end of my internship – Adam McDonald

Weill Music Institute – Reflecting on the end of my internship – Daniel Bernstein

Tue, 09/13/2016 - 10:22am
I just wrapped up my summer internship at the Weill Music Institute, and not surprisingly, it was very hard for me to say goodbye. On my last day in the office, my coworkers threw me a celebration picnic in Central Park (not a bad way to bid farewell!), and the rest of my day was … Continue reading Weill Music Institute – Reflecting on the end of my internship – Daniel Bernstein

Lyric Opera – Reflecting on the end of my internship – Margaret McNeal

Wed, 08/17/2016 - 3:17pm
I came into this internship through my administration and production experience gained by devising and producing my own multi-media performance piece as my senior project; this project made me an excellent candidate to support the Lyric in their recent initiative to re-brand and expand audiences through a series of multi-media and multi-genre events. While at … Continue reading Lyric Opera – Reflecting on the end of my internship – Margaret McNeal

Weill Music Institute – Connecting my internship to academics – Daniel Bernstein

Sun, 08/07/2016 - 11:42am
I’ve actually been surprised at how many of my Lawrence-developed skills and ideas I use each day at the Weill Music Institute. The inclusive and forward-thinking philosophy of the Conservatory is what inspired me to pursue this internship in the first place – as conservatory students at Lawrence, we are constantly encouraged to think deeply … Continue reading Weill Music Institute – Connecting my internship to academics – Daniel Bernstein

Navigant Consulting – My first month – Adam McDonald

Fri, 08/05/2016 - 3:56pm
The first month of my internship with Navigant Consulting was packed with quick orientation within the company followed by quick orientation within the project I was assigned to. The goal was to get me caught up to speed as quickly as possible so I could begin bringing value to the project. Navigant has been a … Continue reading Navigant Consulting – My first month – Adam McDonald

Lyric Opera – Connecting my internship to academics – Margaret McNeal

Thu, 08/04/2016 - 1:52pm
While a voice student at Lawrence, I spent a great deal of time both in the classroom and in performance thinking about opera as an art form: the possibilities afforded to it by the coming together of many disciplines, the myth-making of opera, its potential to spark meaningful dialogue, its often problematic roots in cultural … Continue reading Lyric Opera – Connecting my internship to academics – Margaret McNeal

World Business Chicago – Connecting my internship to academics – Dylan Geary

Wed, 08/03/2016 - 10:51am
As I mentioned in my first post, my experience with CASE has placed merit on the significance of communication and the ability to leverage knowledge across many disciplines, skills that are consistently championed at Lawrence. Although I am by no means solving constrained optimization problems, or calculating the expected outcome of decisions, my economics classes … Continue reading World Business Chicago – Connecting my internship to academics – Dylan Geary

Lyric Opera – My first month – Margaret McNeal

Sun, 07/31/2016 - 1:06pm
Being with the Lyric is giving me insight into different types and sizes of arts organizations: on the spectrum of small (managing an ensemble, perhaps)—to huge, the Lyric falls on the far end of this extreme as a landmark institution with a very “corporate” feel. It’s been interesting for me to learn about the practical … Continue reading Lyric Opera – My first month – Margaret McNeal

Navigant Consulting – First impressions of my internship – Adam McDonald

Wed, 07/27/2016 - 4:27pm
Walking into my internship with Navigant Consulting on my first day, I was equal parts excited and nervous. Personally, I believe this is the best possible combination. Excitement demonstrates that you are in the right place, that you are following a path that will be fulfilling and worthwhile. Nerves demonstrate that you are leaving your … Continue reading Navigant Consulting – First impressions of my internship – Adam McDonald

Lyric Opera – First impressions of my internship – Margaret McNeal

Tue, 07/26/2016 - 10:04pm
My first two weeks interning with the Lyric Opera were highly atypical: I am interning for their Lyric Unlimited Division’s Chicago Voices Initiative; part of this initiative is Chicago Sing, a project which asks people all over Chicago to celebrate their city across genres and abilities through song. For Chicago Sing, I rode around in … Continue reading Lyric Opera – First impressions of my internship – Margaret McNeal
