Alumna's Triumphant Return: Telling Students About the Washington Center
Sunday, March 6, 2011
Johni Amos, who earned her BA majoring in Political Science, is now the Associate Director of the Washington Center. Amos was on campus recently to share the programs available from the Washington Center with ONU students. She spoke in several classes and held informational sessions for students, telling them about the outstanding opportunities that are available through the Center. Students have the chance to work in offices in the federal government, with non-profit corporations, and even intern abroad.
ONU students have recently completed internships with the U.S. Marshall Service, the Federal Trade Commission, and the Commonwealth Association in Great Britain, to name only a few. During Spring Quarter, HPJ students are doing internships with the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee, the United States Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee, and with Financial Executives International.
Plans are also in the works through the center to take students to the National Nominating Conventions for the Democratic and Republican Parties in 2012. Thirteen students attended one of the conventions in 2008, and had great experiences. Maybe you could be one of those students next time?
