Greetings ECO,

It’s that time of year. Three weeks into the Spring semester, we as SIPA students focus our minds on one thing: landing an awesome summer internship. No matter where you are in your internship search, ECO is here to help! We are having our first internship panel one week from now, where second-year Seeples will come share their one-of-a-kind internship experiences this past summer in the environmental field, and to network with you. So mark your calendar, and scroll down for more details!
