    I did two internships for credit at Mizzou — one after my freshman year, and one after my sophomore year. I landed both internships on my own, but neither was for pay, so I had to pay for credit hours to take the internships. One was with a local newspaper, covering sports. The other was with a national radio outlet. They were both wonderful experiences. For Mizzou, I had to write a short paper at the end of each summer to explain what I'd done, in exchange for 3 credit hours each.

    Personally, I didn't see the benefit in taking these internships for credit. I'd have rather been paid, and I'd have rather used the credit hours on interesting new classes at Mizzou. I wish Mizzou had fought for me to get paid for my internships — especially at the paper, I was essentially an unpaid staff writer for the summer.
