My favorite part of DelVal was the hands-on-learning and the E360 Program. It’s great that the University gives students time to learn about their passions. The experience from doing internships helped me get a job after DelVal.
I was immediately drawn to DelVal’s small student-to-faculty ratio and size. It seemed like the perfect fit, and as it turns out, it was!
I got my first taste of real research at my internship and realized that was where I eventually wanted to end up.
Those experiences made my resume stand out and forced companies to see me as an asset instead of another recruit. I truly felt I was more prepared than a lot of seniors taking on the real world post-graduation.
I felt like everyone on campus cared about providing me with a good education and setting me up for success after graduation. I like a good challenge, and I knew that DelVal would challenge me in ways that would put me face-to-face with meaningful opportunities. I was not disappointed.
I gained a fantastic mentor through the Buttonwood Park Zoo internship. Dr. Whitney Greene really gave me an idea of what it was like to be a zoo vet and has continued to influence my professional development.
