Student Testimonials

"I can honestly say it was the best experience of my academic career, and I think everyone should do it!!"

- Josh, Spring 2012

"The lessons learned and knowledge gained from this Internship gave me the experience I needed to get a job at Philhaven. It is a non-profit behavioral health facility. Because of the hardships and challenges I faced while in DC, I am able to relate to the population I will be working with and the information I will have researched is relevant to my career. Thank you so much for all of your assistance this past semester. I am proof that there is a reason the Lord puts us in certain situations - it's nothing we can't handle."

- Caitlan, Spring 2012

"It has been an incredible experience at work and outside of work. This summer proved to not only hold some of the most rewarding both professionally and personally, but spiritually."

- Amanda, Summer 2011

"I was given the opportunity to write the opening statement for Subcommittee Chairman Michael McCaul, for a hearing on Texas Border Security and Narco-Terrorism.  This was an incredible opportunity that I will remember for a long time.  Prior to this hearing, I personally briefed Congressman McCaul on the subject, which was also a great opportunity."

- Kyle, Fall 2011

"I will definitely say that this has been the best experience of my entire life.  I was really nervous about it in the beginning, but it was more than I could have ever imagined. I had so much fun doing the work I was doing.  I loved giving tours of the Capitol. The staff of Congressman Walberg was awesome as well.  They were so kind and a lot of fun to work with. I got to do some pretty substantial work as well, including many constituent letters.

About a month before the internship was over, the Staff Assistant position in my office opened up, and I found out that the Chief of Staff had wanted to hire me, but couldn't because I have one semester left to go.  Needless to say, every person in my office is willing to try to help me find a job after I graduate and put in a word wherever I apply, if there is no position open in the office I worked for."
