Here's what Daniela DiBenedetto ('12) had to say about her internship:
"I could not have picked a better site for my internship. I learned so much about every aspect of NC Theatre and would say that I received a "well-rounded" education that complimented my experiences at Mansfield University. This internship supplied me with lots of knowledge, skills and experiences that filled up my resume and portfolio so that I feel equipped in my future career search."
And here is a recent comment regarding a MU student's work during their internship:
"Tri-Cities Opera has had many Interns but Jordan has really raised the bar for the position. Motivated, hardworking, intelligent, able to take direction well, able to construct new solutions to tasks presented, flexible and extremely personable. All of us at Tri-Cities Opera enjoyed having him with us for his 2013 Summer Internship. Thank you for making it possible for deserving students such as he to receive credit for the excellent work he performed for us. We will truly miss him in the office and wish him every success."
