Tips | Kent State University

“School comes first and take advantage of as much as you can in the city, concerts, events, the Today Show, etc.”

“Network! Volunteer! Intern!”

“Save your money before you come, you will need it! Plan activities ahead of time. Have a great time while you’re here, go out, explore, make good use of this opportunity. Meet people and just have fun you will love it!”

“Be prepared to spend money because everything is expensive, so keep an eye out for deals.  Work hard at your internship to make lasting relationship with people you work with. Make time to have fun and explore.”

“Intern. Don't miss study tour-great opportunity to make connections. Always volunteer for more opportunities offered like Fashion Week jobs.”

“Be outgoing! This is the time and place to leave your comfort zone. Follow up with connections. Perform to the best of your ability at all times, it will get noticed.”

“Save your money, love your internship and if you don't get a new one, make the best of the experience. Work hard, learn a lot and have fun!”

“Make the most of your internship but don't let it completely dictate your months here. There's so much to see and experience, one internship isn't going to completely make or break your career. Make this a full 360 experience.”  

“Save your money, be open to new experiences/challenges, every day is a new day- be ready to learn!”

“Take advantage of your instructors here! They know a lot of people and have vast knowledge of the industry.  Take advantage of the Study Tour visits. You make great contacts and experience places you would not normally have access to.”

“Make sure to allow yourself time to sleep. The city takes a lot out of you.”

“Go out of your comfort zone, it will be worth it. Try new things!”

“Have a great time while you’re here, go out, explore, make good use of this opportunity. Meet people and just have fun, you will love it!”

“Do everything you can, don’t turn down any opportunity, work hard and play harder.”

“Time manage your internship and school.”
