24 Internship Program “Being at Ogden Museum of Southern Art has taught me that business can be incorporated into something that people truly care for and enjoy. You can become good friends with your boss and co-workers. There is not a stigma of always having to be professional or uptight 24/7. People can have fun and get the job done at the same time.” Samantha Foster, the Ogden Museum

25 Internship Program “Try to get an internship in an industry related to your major. I am a Finance major, and working at a bank helped me apply the tools I learned in the classroom, along with meeting new people interested in finance. As an intern, I had to answer to loan officers and much older and more experienced professionals, but as I showed I was able to handle what was given me, I was given more work and more significant work.” Myles Palombo, Whitney National Bank
