I have been interning at Oswego Athletics since my freshman year here. I have gotten to take what I have learned in the classroom and apply it to a real world situation. Working in a professional environment has taught me office etiquette, something that a classroom cannot teach.

My coursework has given me the experience and confidence I need to feel that I am being prepared for work in my field.
