Working with our Walsh University Student Affairs in Higher Education intern was a great experience for our office, students and me. Our intern had such a great base of knowledge and skills from her program and classroom learning, which allowed her to make an immediate impact in the office by helping with essential student appointments, workshops and other projects. It is clear the program helps to develop positive higher education professionals who have a continual thirst for knowledge and professional development. As the supervisor, I was able to grow professionally from the experience and always had strong support and communication from the Walsh program faculty.
