Undergrads, grads and research, oh my

MSU News - October 8, 2014 - 2:42pm
He walked into my office with a confidence well beyond his years and said, "I want to learn how to write science so that regular people can understand it." He had contacted me by email earlier asking if our office had any student writer positions open. I told him, that, unfortunately, we were full for the semester. He asked if he could come by anyway just to pick my brain a bit and I agreed. So there he was, dressed like he was there for an interview, resume in hand and a palpable desire to learn. It took me all of about three minutes before I decided that I had to find some way for this impressive young man to work in our office that semester. We get absolutely fantastic interns to work for us. Most of them come through the School of Journalism in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences and they're excellent writers. We usually find them with the help of referrals from a couple of professors in the college.
