The Undergraduate Executive Internship Program recently selected its interns for the 2016-17 academic year. Anna Oluyomi ’17 will work in the Human Resources Office, Katie Chambers ’17 in the Provost’s Office, Avid Khorramian ’17 and Jake Malavsky ’19 in Communications, Madeline Kling ’17 in Student Affairs, Danielle Taylor ’17 and Madison Farley ’17 in Development & Alumni Relations, Kat Sokirka ’18 in Athletics, Reid Sanchez ’18 in Engineering, Patrick Newhart ’18 in Library & IT, Quinn Flaks ’17 in Endowments & Investments, Adam Drake ’17 and Nick Palmer ’17 in Sponsored Projects, and Max Fathauer ’18 and Kafilat Oladiran ’18 in Arts & Sciences. Rebecca Baptiste ’17 will serve as the Program Coordinator and work in the President’s Office.

The program places students in the offices of senior staff members, where they help bridge the gap between students and staff. Interns also have the opportunity to use their undergraduate experience to become more involved in the University community.

I wanted to gain a broader understanding of how Bucknell operates and connect with University administrators,” Katie Chambers ’17 said.

Chambers is already an active member on campus, particularly through her membership in Bucknell Student Government (BSG). She said that she thought that acting as an Undergraduate Executive Intern would be a great next step.

I am looking forward to further developing my professional self and doing so alongside a number of other talented interns,” Taylor said. “[The program is] a breeding ground for student growthsocially, academically, and professionallyand allows them to make invaluable connections with the University, its students, faculty, staff, and alumni.”  

Maddie Kling ’17 will be interning with Dean of Students Amy Badal. Her goal after graduation is to pursue a career in higher education administration.

I knew that this intern program would be the perfect opportunity to use the skills and knowledge that I have gained already in my courses while also getting some real life experience working with the other interns and the administration,” Kling said.
