I just wanted to check in with you all and see how you are doing since leaving campus (for most of you)? These are unprecedented days like we’ve never seen before. For most of us, these days and weeks ahead will bring so much uncertainty. It’s a place that most of us try to avoid, but today, its unavoidable. That said, there is some certainty you can count on, and that’s the fact that your Social Impact and Education Advisor is here to work with you when you’re ready to move forward. Feel free to make a Zoom Appointment with me through Handshake.
That said, you can also think about how you can use your time close to home to be volunteering in the community. Here in Addison County we have been connected with several community and county-wide resources allowing us to volunteer our time: grocery store and pharmacy pick-ups; baking and cooking meals for the church community supper; delivering Meals-on-Wheels; calling elderly folks for socializing on the phone.
I’ll be posting some articles in the next week which might be of interest from areas that I cover. Meanwhile, don’t forget to keep checking Handshake for great opportunities.
Use this week, if you can, to take some time to breathe deep and relax before classes begin again remotely. I’ll look forward to ‘seeing’ you soon via Zoom.

Some coding experience is required, preferably using python.

Ask your recommenders for letters of recommendation early on and stay on top of them.
A large component of many summer internship applications require multiple letters of recommendation from faculty, advisors, supervisors, etc. These can be just as important as the actual application in that it adds to the story of you as an applicant and also must conform to deadlines. Some internships accept students on a rolling basis, meaning that applications, including letters of recommendation, are reviewed as soon as an application is received so earlier applicants have higher chances of being selected while a late or missing letter of rec can hinder one’s application from being reviewed in a timely fashion.
To best ensure that your letter is completed by your recommender on time is to ask early! It’s helpful to meet with or email them to explain your interest in the different internships and what you would like for them to focus on in their letters. This helps to keep them involved in your application process and ensure that not all of your recommenders repeat the same things about you. It’s important to remember that everyone is busy, especially faculty and staff, so making sure that you’re giving them enough time to write a good letter and submit it by the deadline will only make everything go smoother. Don’t be afraid to send them a reminder email or meet with them before the letter is due to make sure that it hasn’t slipped off their radar and that the letter gets in on time!
