The optional LEJA pre-internship informational meeting for summer 2015 interns and beyond will be held on Wednesday, October 29, 2014, at 3:00 p.m. in Stipes Hall 121. This is NOT a required internship meeting. It is for informational purposes only and should not last longer than 30-45 minutes (opportunity for questions and answers). This meeting will be an opportunity for students (future interns) to learn about the internship process and procedures. **The mandatory internship meetings for spring 2015 interns will be August 26 and 27, 2014 (see below). The mandatory internship meetings for summer and fall 2015 interns is tentatively scheduled for January 20 and 21, 2015.

Mandatory Internship Meetings for Spring 2015 LEJA Interns

Meeting Dates 

  • Tuesday, August 26, 2014 - 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
    121 Stipes Hall - Maximum seating 100
  • Wednesday, August 27, 2014 - 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
    121 Stipes Hall - Maximum seating 100

NOTE:  Both meetings will contain the same information, so only one of the two meetings is required of you. Failure to attend one of these mandatory meetings could result in the student not being allowed to complete a spring 2015 internship (unless permission was obtained from Professor Durkin prior to the scheduled meetings).

As a convenience, pictures will be taken from 4:00 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. in Stipes Hall 122 on the above dates. These will be professional pictures, color, from the waist up, so dress appropriately (COST $8, four color photographs). Students are not required to use this service; however, no internship application will be processed without four color student pictures (1 1/2" x 2").
