Mandatory Internship Meetings for Spring 2017 LEJA Interns

Meeting Dates 

  • Tuesday, August 30, 2016 - 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
    109 Morgan Hall (Pictures begin at 4:00 p.m.)
  • Wednesday, August 31, 2016 - 4:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
    109 Morgan Hall (Pictures begin at 4:00 p.m.)

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 2017 internship (unless permission was obtained from the LEJA Internship Coordinator prior to the scheduled meetings).

As a convenience, pictures will be taken from 4:00 p.m. until 4:25 p.m. in Morgan Hall 109 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").
