My most vivid/best memory of my time at Alma is

My junior year I took an off-campus internship through the Philadelphia Center. Spending a semester working and living in the city was not only an incredible experience as a student, but spending 32 hours a week at my internship with a marketing communications agency in the heart of Philly helped shape my understanding of the marketing/advertising field. The internship also gave me experience after graduation, helping to jump-start my career.
