Summertime isn’t always vacation time for students at Auburn University. It’s also a time to get a jump on a career by getting their hands dirty with firsthand professional experience. Each summer, students in the College of Agriculture intern with companies and organizations across the U.S. and beyond. Here are a few examples of where some students in the college interned over the summer.
