Page 8 EWU Supplement September 23, 1982 Internships Students will see this sign on the side of Hargreaves Hall this fall as the Center for Extended Learn. ing (CEL) begins a campaign to Involve students in their internship program. Students are being en. couraged to apply for on.the-job training with Cheney. and Spoo kane-area businesses. Often, stu. dents will want to take more than one internship during their stay B at Eastern, say the advisors, who add that students perhaps should ....... " not wait until their senior years to get involved. Above, from left, are Co-op Coordinator Pat Homer, Co-op advisor Pat Peery, Office Manager Phyllis Martin and Peer Advisor Jeanie Dyssrt. Students urged to seek internships Internships are not just for seniors anymore. That's the message being given out this fall by the Center for Extended Learn- ing, located in Hargreaves Hall. According to Coordina- tor Pat Horner, sophomores, juniors and some freshmen also can receive some valu- able on-the-job training with various Cheney and Spokane- area businesses, while also earning credits and/or some extra cash, Horner coordinates the pro- gram out of Hargreaves Hall under CEL Director Michael eee Whitesage. Also associated with the Internship Program is Advisor Pat Peary and Student Peer Advisor Jeanie Dysart, who is starting her second year of working 12 hours per week on a one-to- one basis with other students. Located at the Bon Marche in Spokane and in charge of developing work sites with employers is Isabella Green. More than ever, according to those associated with the program, jobs are harder to get without prior experience for the typical student grad- uating from school. Hence, the importance of the intern program. To make sure that the intern experience is good for the students and employers alike, the program advisors meet regularly with employ- ers and students to define job responsibilities and to follow up experience with evalua- tion. "It's always a learning ex- perience, whether it is posi- tive or negative," stated Horner, noting that some stu- dents discover they may not wish to continue their educa- tion in a particular area after actually experiencing the field through their intern- ships. "What we're finding is that many students are start- ing their internships too late," she added. Employers, Horner contin- ued, usually are pleased with the students that have been screened for various posi- tions. About 95 percent, she said, are "serious" in their work and manage "to get a lot out of their internships." Perhpas more important than learning a specific job skill is the learning of "trans- ferable skills", such as learn- ing to meet and work with other people o/" learning more about personal abilities and self confidence.

Easterner to cover national events A closer focus on national college news and an expand- ed feature section highlight- ing alternative sports are a few of the changes Easterner Editor Jim Van Nostrand has planned for the new school year. A fifth-year senior major- ing in journalism with an emphasis in outdoor recrea- tion, Van Nostrand said the 1982-83 Easterner will utilize the National College Press Service for news and editor- ials and feature the popular syndicated cartoon series, "Frankly Speaking." While planning to continue extensive coverage of sports and hard news, Van Nostrand has doubled his feature de- partmnet by using two fea- ture editors, Heidi Schuler and Chris Gaston to expand the paper's coverage of cul- tural and social events on campus. Other editors on this year's paper are Associate Editor Russ Miller, Sports Editor Jeff Bunch and Photo Editor Randy Rains. The Easterner office and darkroom are located in Room 119, under the stairwell of the Pence Union Building.
