    The internship program was easy, which I liked, but I never got any feedback on my journal entries. In my "journal" (it was digital) I would write about when my supervisor wasn't there the days that I was and he hadn't made this aware to me. A lot of the time I didn't have much to do. I ended up pitching my own ideas, which worked out well for me in the end, but I felt like I was left alone when I didn't have the same resources reporters have to see what's going on, like press releases. It was unstructured, like many of my unpaid internships have been.

    While the school did not help a lot with getting the internship its self, they were really good with making sure that I got credit for what I did find. Mostly what you have to do is keep a journal, and write a small paper at the end talking about what you learned. I appreciated that because it gave me breathing room to focus on doing the best I could at the internship, without having to worry about doing random busy work for the school.
