[MUSIC PLAYING] SPEAKER 1: Hey, everyone. So as the semester progresses, you might be thinking more and more about what to do over the summer. Since it's the summer after freshman year, you do have a bunch of different options. Don't put too much pressure on yourself to land that dream internship, since you'll have other summers to do so. Instead, it's important to recognize that there are a bunch of different ways to gain something valuable out of a lot of different experiences. I talked to some Tat staff across different colleges and majors to get an idea of what they did after their freshman summers. Here's what they said.
AMBER: Hey, I'm Amber. I'm a bio major and I'm pre-med. My freshman summer, I worked at a cafe at my hometown, and I also did research at a local university. It was super fun, because I got to both learn about research and also make money.
SABRINA: Hi, my name is Sabrina. I'm a junior in ILR. And my freshman summer, I went home to San Diego and worked as an unpaid intern at a law firm.
DREW: Hi, my name is Drew. I'm a junior studying biology & society. And during my freshman year summer, I took CHEM 2070 and 2080 to catch up on my pre-med credits.
SPEAKER 2: You ready?
MOLLY: Hi, I'm Molly. I'm a senior human development major. And the summer after my freshman year, I worked at a day camp. I loved it, because I got to see how kids learn and play and grow.
SPEAKER 3: Hi, guys. My name is [INAUDIBLE]. I'm a junior here at the Tatkon Center, a policy analysis management major. In the summer after my freshman year, I worked at my local hospital doing public health studies, working with the head nursing officer there. I would definitely recommend working around your hometown area, volunteering, even. It's a very nice, relaxing thing to to after your freshman year.
SPEAKER 4: Hey, guys, what's up? If you're looking for something to do over the summer, whether it's back home or here at Cornell, our Tat staff are here and ready to talk to you.
