The Intern: An Ongoing Report

Things have been going well in my internship. Ben Kramer has been teaching me how to complete Purchase Orders, Local Fund Requests, and Transmittals. Some of it can get confusing at times, but I am doing quite well with it all.

I have been sitting in with Ben and the Beautification Committee to discuss what changes could possibly come to the student lounge. This has been an interesting process to see what all is involved in committee work and also what is involved in the purchasing of items for campus beautification.

The most enjoyable experience I have encountered in my internship is working with the students. NRCC has a wonderful group of students and it has been a pleasure getting to work with them. I will keep you updated on my experiences, so tune in next time…Thanks, and come see me!
