LINCOLN UNIVERSITY STUDENTS GET THEIR SHARE OF INTERNSHIPS

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, PA ~ Milan K. Carter is back in the classroom at Lincoln University after an extremely busy summer, gaining firsthand experience as an intern at three venues.  He called his summer a “worthy experience.”

Carter, Mr. Lincoln and a broadcast journalism major, had three internships, including CN8 (Comcast News 8) in New Castle, Del., 215 Magazine in Philadelphia and Studio 609, a music company also in Philadelphia.

“I enjoyed all three internships,” Carter said.  “Even though they were not paid internships, the experiences were worth having.”

Carter, however, was far from being the lone university student switching from the classroom to the boardroom last summer. For example, Tara Green, an accounting major, interned with State Farm Insurance, Markell Smallwood and Kelvin Kahmunga did likewise at Excellus Blue Cross and Blue Shield.  Smallwood is also an accounting major, while Kahmunga is majoring in math and actuary science.

Another accounting major, Rumbvi Tabvuma, interned at KPMG in Philadelphia and Lana Johnson, a biopsychology major, interned at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Psychiatric Behavior Health Unit. Meanwhile, Javon Pratt, a math and actuary science major, landed an internship at Independence Blue Cross and Blue Shield-Infomatics and Isaac Boateng, a finance major, interned at Madison Square Garden Cablevision.

Three students, Kimberly Gullege, Virginia McGarvey and Tyrone Valentine, all education majors, remained on campus and interned in the Department of Education.

Except McGarvey, a junior, and Valentine, a freshman, the other students are seniors.

At CN8 Carter helped develop stories for the “Art Fennell Reports.” According to the station, the program takes an interactive look at the news and events that shape viewers' worlds. Carter earned three credits for this internship.

Carter worked in marketing and promotions for 215 Magazine.  The newly established magazine, which focuses on teenagers and young adults, provides information on events and issues that directly impact them.  It is published quarterly.  Carter hopes to continue working for this magazine year round.

Carter’s Studio 609 experience sits well with him since he has a passion for writing music and singing.  Carter served as a receptionist, while learning how the music industry operates.

As Mr. Lincoln, Carter’s platform is all about unity.  He plans to implement several programs that will bring all students together and keep them unified. 

He said he likes Lincoln University because “it is home away from home for me.  It is small.  I have grown to love the faculty, staff and administration so much that I hardly go home on weekends.” 

Carter also served as a student leader during orientation for new students.

Founded in 1854, Lincoln University is a premier, historically Black University that combines the best elements of a liberal arts and sciences-based undergraduate core curriculum and selected graduate programs to meet the needs of those living in a highly technological and global society.  The University is nationally recognized as a major producer of African Americans with undergraduate degrees in the physical sciences (biology, chemistry and physics); computer and informational sciences; biological and life sciences.  Lincoln has an enrollment of 2,423 undergraduate and graduate students.
