300 students gather to learn
of internship program openings
By KEVIN GRAY
Approximately 300 students
who want to enter the business
world a little bit early gathered in
Rackham Auditorium last night
to learn how summer internships
can give them an edge when they
start their careers.
The University's Office of
Career Planning and Placement
is holding two meetings -
yesterday's for students who want
an internship in business, and
another next Wednesday for
students interested in public
"THE IDEA of an internship is
to give the student practical
experience in his or her field of
interest," said Kerin McQuaid,
the experiential learning
programs supervisor at the Career
Planning and Placement Office.
An internship helps students
make career choices by giving
them insight into their field, she
Jeff Racenstein, a junior in the
business school, attended last
night's meeting. "I just started
Business School, and want to see
what opportunities are available,"
Mary Wagner, an LSA senior
and student coordinator for the
Public Service Internship
Program (P.S.I.P.), worked for
the American Reserve
Conservation Council, a special
interest group in Washington,
D.C. last summer. Wagner said
she was treated "like a staff
member," and as part of her
responsibilities she wrote a
testimonial speech for a senator
and a booklet about forest service
"P.S.I.P. tries to make the
summer more than just a job, it's
a learning experience. They set
up trips to the Hill where we heard
several Senate hearings and even
met one of the physicists working
on 'Star Wars,'" she said.
About one-third of the students
who apply for the internships will
receive them. There are 75
business internships and 100
public service internships.
"We're looking for
individuals with a solid GPA,
involvement in extracurricular
activities, and some sort of
previous job experience that will
show us a sense of responsibility,"
PUBLIC service interns don't
usually receive pay, but business
interns usually do. Salaries are
usually arranged between the
students and their employers,
Average living expenses run
between $1,600 and $1,700 for the
summer, and students living in
Washington can also stay in
dorm rooms at George
Washington University. A
financial aid package is offered
only for public service interns.
Claire Chapman, an LSA
senior and program participant,
told students at last night's
meeting.that she received "an
education that is really not
available in the classroom. And
it's not just for business students
but for anyone who has and wants
to develop their leadership skills
and problem solving techniques."
McQuaid said increasing
numbers of students are working
at "professional" jobs in the
summer and are consequently
more prepared for job interviews.
"It's also easier to make a career
change after a summer versus
accepting a permanent position
after college and then realizing it
isn't for you," she said.
No one faces cancer alone.

Law school dean resigns after 8 years

faculty members disagreed, and
said the Rosenzwieg case
exemplifed Sandalow's growing
inability to. deal with the Law
"If Sandalow had resigned
after six years, he would have
gone down as a spectacular dean.
It's too bad he got involved in
some very explosive matters in
the last two to three years," said
one law professor who did not
want his name used.
Law Prof. Douglas Kahn
agreed that, after an impressive
beginning, Sandalow's tenure
was characterized by "friction
"THERE WAS a tendency to
feel that some parts of the faculty
were being shut out-that some
parts of the faculty had his ear,
and that other parts of the faculty
perhaps didn't," Kahn said.
"But it's not all the dean's
fault. People are bound to have
disagreemnts with the dean,"
said Kahn, who added that
Sandalow may have suffered
from an "administrative
disease" that makes many top
officials increasingly centralize
their decision process.
Other faculty members
defended Sandalow and praised
his introduction of one small
section of only 25 students into the
