    Communication Internship

    "By the end of my internship I had learned a great deal about both my new colleagues and friends and myself, and it was difficult to imagine a better way to have spent a semester. Though my options for studying abroad had been virtually limitless, I realized after closing out my time in the Czechmates program that really there had only been one option all along – and it certainly proved to be the right one ."
