In Latin, the word “experior” means to do, try, or experience. The Experior Program at Notre Dame offers students the opportunity to continue learning outside of a traditional classroom setting, through Senior Internships and Independent Research Projects.
Throughout the Fall Semester, 17 seniors took internships both inside and outside of Notre Dame in order to enhance their educational experience. The Senior Fall Internship Program culminated with a Breakfast Symposium on February 10.
During the symposium, each student presented a poster board they had made as a visual representation of their responsibilities within the internship. At this time students explained to parents, teachers, and staff what their responsibilities were and challenges they may have faced during this unique learning experience.
After the presentations, the interns participated in a question and answer session led by the Experior Program Coordinator, Mr. James Gibilisco. He asked interns questions that specifically related to their job site, and asked students how this experience will prepare them for their future. The program was then opened to the audience consisting of mentors, administrators, and family members in attendance.
Notre Dame would like to congratulate all the seniors who took part in the Internship Program and the mentors who guided them along the way.
