Cabrina Buckman, a hospitality management and dietetics double major, is completing her dietetics internship. In an electronic interview she shares her experiences:
Where are you completing your internship?

What is your typical day as an intern like?
“I really do not have a typical day as an intern. The wonderful part about working in Community Nutrition is that your schedule of activities changes from day to day!”

“Besides, of course, using everything I learned in class, I use my study habits and organizational skills I developed in college to complete assignments on time.”
If you could share one piece of advice for other students in you major who are preparing to complete an internship what would it be?
“Go into each situation with a smile on your face and an open mind.”
