Featured Internship: Meghan Whitney

Location of internship, brief job description, and any special recognitions:

Western Golf & Country Club Redford, Michigan

The majority of my time was spent serving lunch or dinner service but I also served large and small banquets as well. I also had the opportunity to take on roles such as catering manager and closing manager several times.

How you related this internship to one of the FSU core values:

One of Ferris’ core values I could really relate to my internship would be opportunity. The staff at Western were always more than willing to help me gain knowledge and experience. Every time I asked to learn something new, they were happy to teach and explain. All of the opportunities I had during my internship were because of my willingness to learn and grow.

Volunteer, Campus Involvement, and/or something special about you:

I am a member of Zeta Tau Alpha and the Hospitality Management Student Association and I am also a member of the Love Your Melon campus crew. All through which I volunteer my time for several causes.

Advice for other students:

My advice for students would be to get as involved as you can. College is what you make of it. The more involved and connected you are, the greater the experience.
