Now that you ve gotten into college
here’s your chance to really go somewhere.
Congratulations. All the cramming, Insomnia and junk food
breakfasts have paid off. You’re in college now - and soon, you’ll be
facing questions about your life. Like what to do with the rest of it.
One thing is for sure, if you’re a student of color, with an INROADS
internship you could have a serious job every summer while you’re
still in school - making contacts and gaining experience in your
chosen field of study. Hey, it won’t be easy, but then again if you
wanted it easy, you wouldn’t be reading this right now.
