Internship Placement: 
Matanuska Glacier in Alaska

Although not technically an internship, we couldn't resist adding this one! Laura Lupin spent the summer at Matanuska Glacier in Alaska where she worked with a team to ensure trails were well maintained and unguided groups were safe while exploring the glaciers.  As a forensic chemistry major, this was a great way to receive outdoors experience in her field.

"The overall experience was absolutely amazing, a 10-out-of-10," says Lupin. "The daily view alone beat working in an office all summer and I really learned a lot of things which were not limited to glaciers. Meeting people from all over the world, such as Poland, Germany, China and Russia and hearing about their adventures in Alaska was so enjoyable. Not to mention, I couldn't have asked to work with a better group of hardworking people."
