Fredonia has a great alumni connection. My current boss, Ben, is a Fredonia alum and visited Fredonia to speak to a group of students. While he was there, he spoke with Mike Barone, the Director of Public Relations at Fredonia, about an intern for the summer. I was interning with Mike at the time and he recommended I apply for the position. It was a great fit!

I am interning in the digital department as a digital content coordinator. My boss is Ben Kirst.

I hope to learn how to manage my time effectively in order to balance work for multiple clients.
