"As a student living on campus, working outside of campus became a hassle. I often would be too tired to do homework or study after coming home from work because my only option was working evenings. But the StudentPlus Internship Program was the perfect solution. The schedule revolves around school, allowing students to stay on track to graduate. On top of that, students are placed in various offices that provide new experiences that will aid them in the future."- Derria Davis | Psychology | Senior
