“Co-op is a good program in terms of gaining meaningful work experience, while at the same time, maintaining full student status.”

"Over the summer, I worked with SLICE (Service Learning Integrated throughout the College of Engineering) to study the effects of demographics on service learning projects within the engineering departments. I helped record the data of 400 plus surveys from students and faculty in the past year before performing statistical analysis to find correlating factors. The program I used was called SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences). After gathering the information, I submitted a summary report of the findings to Prof. John Duffy who will report back to the National Science Foundation. The purpose of this study is to better represent minorities in the engineering fields as well as to encourage community interaction. In general, co-op is a good program in terms of gaining meaningful work experience, while at the same time, maintaining full student status."
