If You’re Doing An Externship…

…go you! But seriously if you are going to be doing an Externship over Winter Break here are a few tips: Make sure you have contacted your sponsor to set up your externship details; like date and time, initial meeting location, directions, parking recommendations, appropriate attire. I bold this for a reason, when in doubt over dress! Suits and business attire always go over well, even in places that may have a more relaxed dress code; jeans, sweatpants, yoga pants not so much. Once all the details are set up – arrive 10 minutes early and HAVE FUN! Take it […]

We are currently investigating, but I don’t know when or if more copies will become available.x Now, we know that Bucknell students would never do something like this. Clearly it must have been that everyone wanted to read about Missy. And who […]
