South Hills Community News Release
STATE COLLEGE — Students from each of the eleven specialized associate degree programs at South Hills School of Business & Technology are required to complete a 12-week internship (24 weeks for Diagnostic Medical Sonography students) upon completion of their program. Throughout the students’ internships, they are provided with real-world working experience in their fields before graduation.
Each year, South Hills holds an Internship Appreciation Luncheon at Mountain View Country Club in Boalsburg to honor each internship supervisor. This is the school’s way of thanking those employers who have provided their students with such an invaluable service.
As part of the luncheon presentation, Business Administration–Accounting program intern, Derek Stevens, and Criminal Justice program intern, Jonothan Glunt, briefly discussed their internships and gave many thanks to all of the internship supervisors and South Hills faculty and staff.
Appreciation awards are given to those businesses who have accepted South Hills interns for five or more years. This year, Mount Nittany Physician Group was recognized for taking South Hills interns for the last 15 years, and Penn State’s Office of the Physical Plant was honored for five years of participation.
Employers interested in participating in the South Hills internship program should contact our Career Services Team at 814-234-7755 or fill out our "Find an Intern" form online.
