A Thank You To The People Who Made My Summer Internship More Than I Ever Expected

From, your favorite marketing intern.

Summer Interns
Julia Waterbury

This summer, I was fortunate enough to be offered a position as an intern in the Marketing Department at a commercial construction and real estate company in Chicago. As a marketing major who knew absolutely nothing about the construction or commercial real estate industries, I wasn't really sure what to expect. I knew it would be good experience, but what I didn't know was that it would turn out to be both the fastest 10 weeks of my life and one of the best decisions I've made in my college career.

There were so many people who played a part in making this such a fun summer, and I'm grateful to all of them, so thank you:

To the office

From day one, I felt welcomed by everyone in the office, from the recent college grads to the CEO. Even though I was just a summer intern, I became a part of the family and felt at home in the office. I never thought I'd be the person that says they genuinely look forward to going to work every day, but I genuinely looked forward to going to work every day, so thank you for making me that person. (Did I look forward to the hour commute through rush hour traffic? Not so much, but you can't have it all.)

To my team

Despite the fact that some of you were a little skeptical about having an intern at first, you got used to me pretty quickly and made working something that was actually fun. I truly enjoyed every project that you gave me and learned so much from it all. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to join such a great team and, of course, for being by far the coolest department in the company.

To the other interns

The summer definitely wouldn't have been the same without you four and my daily detours to your side of the office. From our adventures on-site visits to our weekly intern lunches to our inside jokes, you never failed to make me smile (even though you liked to hate on me for being in Marketing). Thank you for all the times you had to explain to me what the heck something like 50' x 52' bays or a 36' clear height meant and for (mostly) putting up with all the pictures I made you take for our social media.

And, especially, to my mentor

You might have been the most skeptical of anyone in the department about getting an intern, but fortunately, I managed to exceed your expectations and you quickly became my go-to person for just about everything. Thank you for not hating me for the 5,000 times a day that I showed up at your desk asking questions or looking for more work to do. I'm going to miss our many daily chats and all the advice that you gave me on everything from writing press releases to life.

I definitely couldn't have asked for a better internship experience or better people to work with. So to all of you: thank you for an unforgettable summer.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
