Research, campus jobs 和 new experiences

“As an intern for the Eckerd College Dolphin Project, I have gained valuable experience in conducting research on bottlenose dolphins in Tampa Bay. For the past two summers, I completed internships at other institutions 和 at Eckerd. Besides being a marine science tutor 和 a lab teaching assistant, I am a resident advisor 和 an ambassador, which allows me to interact with diverse groups of people. Eckerd has given me invaluable experiences through on-campus involvement.”
