Last week students and staff gathered by the Sue dinosaur preparation
area at the Field Museum of Natural History for a roundtable discussion on
internships. Student-interns, their mentors and sponsors gathered with staff and
faculty members for a reception afterward to celebrate the College Internship
Programs. John McCarter Jr., president of the Field Museum of Natural History and
University Trustee, and John Boyer, Dean of the College, hosted the event. Since
1997, more than 250 Chicago undergraduates have acquired internships exclusively
reserved for students in the College.
