"U. S. News": Internships prepare students for careers.

Andrea Kim ’17, a neuroscience intern at Boston Children's Hospital, was among nearly 400 MHC students who completed internships this past summer.

Mount Holyoke College is among the schools leading the way in providing funding for internships and research experiences, according to a recent U. S. News & World Report article.

The story delves into how colleges can help students thrive during and after college. It aims to help high school students choose a college with programs proven to help students succeed.
