"One of the most beneficial experiences I've had at Marquette was my internship.  It gave me a chance to relate what I learned in class, and be able to see it applied in the real world setting.  My internship experience inspired me to continue my education towards a Master's in Social Work."

~ Kate Kriloff, BA in Social and Cultural Sciences
