Instructions for those of you with an internship in an office

Each time you work, you should record your hours. At the end of the semester, you and your supervisor should meet and agree whether or not you have completed your hours. Upon agreement, you should write a paragraph about what you have done for the past semester. Below is a form for your report. The reason we ask that you record your hours each time you work is so that it will make it easier for you and your supervisor to agree that you have completed your hours.

I have worked with Dot Helms for the past semester. I have completed a number of different tasks. I answer phones and enter the decal cards into the computer. I also interact with the student body selling decals and helping students with holds and their parking tickets. I have enjoyed my work at the University Police station very much and I am looking forward to it next semester. I also complete various small tasks such as making copies and running errands.

My leadership position this semester has been a real success. I was appointed to the University Activities Council. The leadership position that I chose was Chairman of Publicity. This role entailed numerous responsibilities. As Publicity Chair, I also resided over a committee. This committee consisted of approximately 10 members. Some of my obligations were; to create and distribute fliers, get the students interested in the numerous activities that were implemented, design new ways to advertise, and I was also in charge of creating ads for the UAC to be placed in the Tropolitan. I really enjoyed this position. It has challenged me to use some of the skills and talents, which I never realized that I possessed. The group of individuals that I worked closely beside offered me the opportunity to speak what I believed in. Even though we were diverse and unique, we all come together for a common cause…to speak for the voice of the student body. Being in a position of leadership is a great task. I never realized the amount of accountability that is involved. I am very thankful to be offered this rare opportunity. I hope that my continued role in the UAC will imprint my goals and values into the lives of those whom I come in contact with.

Seminar Reports

As a fourth year leadership scholar, you are encouraged to attend a seminar of your selection. Fourth year leadership scholars must attend a seminar each semester. You should be actively reading the student newspaper, checking your Trojan e-mail, and looking for announcements on bulletin boards about seminars. We really encourage you to attend seminars that are sponsored by your academic department. If you belong to a student organization that brings in a speaker you may use that.

You will be notified of the seminar that our office sponsors (by e-mail) and if you attend the seminar where our office is doing a sign in sheet, it is not necessary to write a paragraph if you remember to sign in. We will record your seminar based on your signature.

If you attend a seminar on your own, below is a sample seminar report that you would turn. You may e-mail this report to We highly suggest that you turn in your report as soon as possible after you attend a seminar. Students have found that if they wait to turn in their written report, they will have forgotten the details of the seminar. Remember that the content of the speaker’s presentation is what you should write about, not a description of the actual program.

On April 17, Troy University hosted the Helen Keller Lecture. Special music was provided by Daniel Ray and the featured speakers for this lecture were Coach Harold Jones and James Kennedy, or better known as Radio. Most people in attendance had seen or heard of the movie Radio, which portrayed the relationship between Coach Jones and Radio. But this lecture gave the true story of these two remarkable individuals. Coach Jones was the head football coach at T.J. Hanna High School in Anderson, South Carolina, and while he was there he, along with his family, team, and most of the town, took in Radio. Radio is developmentally challenged but has a love for football. In the early 1960s he started stopping by some of the team’s football practices and has been a part of the game ever since. Coach Jones and Radio’s bond was featured in Sports Illustrated and that turned into a movie. Despite all of the fame the article and movie has given them, Coach Jones and Radio are still the down to earth people they have always been. Today, the two travel around the nation together to share their story and inform people about their charity and the effects of the developmentally challenged. When he is not on the road, one can still find Radio around T. J. Hanna High School making sure the students are doing everything they are supposed to be doing. The story of Coach Jones and Radio will continue to inspire people, just as it did that day at Troy University.

Please note that I will not accept a report that is similar to this:

I don’t remember when, but I went to a lecture. A man spoke there about being blind. I really don’t remember what he talked about, it was so long ago. There were some other speakers there too.
