Student Spotlight: Jacob

Seeking Out Ways to Expand and Grow

Since college is an important investment, Jacob intentionally sought out academic opportunities that would enhance his professional development. Designing an education and path to career success, he pursued study abroad in Scotland, a summer research fellowship with the National Science Foundation, and a semester-long internship in Jefferson City.

“Being able to go to the State Capitol and be a full-time intern and live in Jefferson City and be involved in the day-to-day happenings at the Capitol really prepared me for being able to work in state government.”
