More than 150 students took part in internships this summer through SUNY Oswego’s Experience-Based Education program, among them several local students. The interns, with their class year and major in parentheses, include:
- Leah M. Phillips of Fulton: Oswego Hospital in Oswego (senior, human resource management)
- Elizabeth Rice of Fulton: IBN Financial Services Inc. in Liverpool (senior, business administration)
- Genna Tripoli of Lycoming: New York State Golf Association in Syracuse (senior, business administration)
- Jacquelyn M. McGuire of Mexico: Children’s Museum of Oswego in Oswego (junior, business administration)
- Jeremy T. Pekarek of Minetto: Seward House in Auburn (senior, history)
The Experience-Based Education program at Oswego places students in internships and career awareness opportunities that allow them to earn college credits while garnering valuable life experience.
Last year, more than a thousand Oswego students took part in experiential learning while working at hundreds of businesses, nonprofit agencies and government offices, not counting the hundreds of student teachers working in area schools.
