What We Did Over the Summer: Macalester Internships

By the time they graduate, two-thirds of Mac students complete internships, many of them only a few miles from the college’s St. Paul campus.

But over the summer months they range farther afield. In the summer that just passed, Mac students worked throughout the country, at such places as Microsoft, Hearst Publishing’s Veranda Magazine, and the United Nations Population Fund.

Here is a sampling of some other Mac student summer internships.
