Faith Sadlowski - Environmental Studies

Faith Sadlowski
“My internship at Growing Oshkosh made me more involved in the off-campus community and provided valuable networking that enhances my environmental studies degree. The ideas of sustainability, ecological responsibility, civic engagement and the complexities of human systems were all demonstrated while working with Growing Oshkosh. I also learned how rewarding and challenging working for a nonprofit can be; I aspire to start my own organization some day with the skills I have gained.  –Faith Sadlowski, Senior, Environmental Studies

Matt Ebert - Human Resources

“Throughout my internship with Disney I learned how to take chances and go for it. It wasn’t easy to leave home for six
months, but the life experiences and networking I did was worth it in the end. Disney taught me to always be professional, even in the hardest times. I truly do love my job and everything it has to offer. I can’t wait to see what long-term careers come out of this once-in-a-lifetime internship.” –Matt Ebert, Senior, Human Resources Management
