Adventures All Around | Endowment Intern Raven

Week three of my internship was filled with adventures I never thought I would have. The first adventure of the week was a small one. It seems that just about every week, something interesting happens outside my office window. This week, the entire population of campus geese decided to come graze outside my window. Nearly 15 goslings and their parents trapped us inside the building as they foraged for food right outside, and trust me, they can be very aggressive. I tried to feed them potatoes chips and got hissed at.

Hub City Exploration | Endowment Intern Raven

Week two at ETV Upstate was when the real fun started. This was the week that I started working on stories. My first story centered on the Hub City Co-op. I had to put my "big-girl" hat on and call the co-op to get permission and schedule interviews. I had never conducted an interview before and the whole process was nerve-wrecking. I was thankful to have William there to continue to ask questions once I had finished mine.

The Introduction | Endowment Intern Raven

My first week as an ETV Endowment intern involved several hours in the van. Our (mine and the ETV Upstate's station manager, William Richardson) first trip to Columbia was for the staff appreciation day luncheon. I was able to see some familiar faces as well as meet other members of the ETV staff. However, the best part of the day was the food! As a former engineering intern, I have learned to value lunch time like never before. We were also given t-shirts, which was an added bonus. I am told that the shirt is a throwback to an old logo, one that was way before my time.

Hit the Ground Running | Endowment Intern Jenna

I can’t believe it’s almost the end of my first week at ETV. I have learned so much already, and I can’t imagine where the next nine weeks will take me. I started working on May 29, only two days after returning from Spain, where I studied abroad for 5 months. I was still ridiculously jetlagged, but I was so excited to finally start.

Exciting Adventures | Endowment Intern Rebecca

Barrier Island Oyster Co.

This week was another adventurous one. Not only did I get to start working with the footage from some previous shoots but I also had the opportunity to tag along on a shoot in the Low Country. We spent the day visiting the Barrier Island Oyster Company, located on Ocella Creek. One of the best things about being an intern here is that you get the opportunity to visit unique places and learn about such a large variety of things.
