Testimonials from Previous Interns

“My time spent working in the biodiesel lab was very fulfilling and allotted me the experience to learn more about the possible direction I wanted to head in life. Additionally, I had a blast of a time working with everybody involved, to the point that I ended up spending my free time hanging out and just trying to learn as much as I could.”
—Will Jarrott, 2009
“Working in the biodiesel allowed me to build new skills in problem solving. It is extremely cool knowing that I participated in making fuel that Loyola’s biodiesel lab produces and sells. Being able to have hands-on learning experience will be one of the highlights in my college career.”
—Michele Stein, 2010–11
"Sweet experience!"
—Kelly Graiziger, 2010–11
