"My internship has been the best choice I could have ever made in my Arts & Science undergrad. I have built a portfolio of skills I can speak to during any interview or networking situation. I encourage all Queen’s student to take advantage of such a great opportunity!"
- Laura Wyatt, BAH '17, Communications and Projects Intern.

As part of her internship, Laura was the campus lead for the It All Adds Up campaign and is seen here being photographed for a newspaper article.
