Relevant. Real-World. Right Now.
Experience is everything when it comes to landing that first job after college. At Elms, we shape your education around fulfilling, insight-catalyzing learning opportunities that give you that experience upfront.
Sure, you’ll add bullet points to your resume. But you’ll also put your ideas into action, connect with mentors, reach your limits (and surpass them), and grow into a confident leader. From start to finish, our faculty and staff will help guide you through the process, however you decide to get involved.
Internships are the epicenter of the college experience these days. You’ve aced the exams, completed the projects, and done the class discussions. But is your major really for you? The best way to find out is to work with a business, nonprofit organization, government agency, startup, charity, Fortune 500 company, or some other group of like-minded individuals and to put everything you’ve learned into practice.
To help jump start your search, we offer one-on-one internship and career guidance through our Office of Career Services. From writing an attention-grabbing resume to making the most of networking events, we’re here to offer advice that will help you nail the interview.
Research at Elms is more than conducting an experiment or helping a professor with a project. It’s an immersive, student-driven foray into the unknown. In addition to gaining a more mature understanding of your major, you’ll emerge from your experience with new skills in systematic thinking and analysis, decision making, and deadline management.
Studying abroad is your chance to tap into the global cultural milieu. As a bonus, you’ll earn credits toward your degree, meet incredible people, and even improve your foreign language skills. Elms offers semester-long exchange programs, brief faculty-led excursions, and opportunities to travel within the United States.
The Office of Campus Ministry sponsors week-long mission trips to foster social change. From rebuilding homes devastated by Hurricane Katrina to learning about the geopolitical dynamics at the U.S.-Mexico border, these trips will introduce you to broader humanitarian efforts around the country and world.
