Blanchet Senior Summer Internships - Sophie Schindler

October 31, 2023
By Toni Nanneman

Last summer, several Blanchet seniors participated in a variety of academic internship programs.  Internships can be a great opportunity to gain valuable work experience and explore potential career paths. By participating, seniors can build their professional network, develop important job-related skills, and gain a better understanding of the industry they wish to pursue.  They may also provide seniors with a competitive edge when applying for jobs or college admissions.  We'd like to share information about some of the internships with the Blanchet community.

First is Blanchet senior, Sophie Schindler. Sophie participated in the Notre Dame Summer Program.  Sophie said, “Over the summer, I took an English Literature course with the University of Notre Dame. I applied in October of last year, and a couple of weeks later, I found out I had been accepted! The course was named Hope and Faith in the Age of Dystopia, which I had been very excited to see on the list of available courses, as dystopian books are some of my favorites. The class was online, two weeks long, and about five hours a day, and I loved every minute of it! We did presentations, wrote our own endings of books, had deep discussions, and learned how to think critically about literature. Because the course was online, people could participate from all over the world. Now, I have friends in Cincinnati, Texas, China, and Egypt! I am so grateful I took this course, not only because I earned college credit, but because I learned how to approach life with a hopeful lens.”
