Campus Greensboro Celebrates Campus Greensboro Day on July 29
In recognition of National Intern Day, Campus Greensboro will celebrate interns in our city by hosting a Campus Greensboro Day Celebration in Lebauer Park from 4:30-7:00 PM, on July 29, 2022.
Mayor Nancy Vaughan has proclaimed the day “Campus Greensboro Day” to celebrate college students interning in Greensboro. Campus Greensboro invites anyone who has interns or who wants to celebrate young talent in our city to come to Lebauer Park on July 29th from 4:30-7 PM to join this nation-wide celebration. Enjoy music, games and local food treats while meeting local employers and community partners who support GSO interns. Companies are encouraged to share photos and videos of their interns on social media using the hashtag #GSOisMyCampus and tag Campus Greensboro (CampusGreensboro).
The Campus Greensboro Fellows Program is a competitive, 10-week summer program that connects students to paid industry internships. As Fellows, students are provided opportunities to build their networks, enhance their professional development, engage in the community, and explore Greensboro as a place to thrive as young professionals.
For 2022, the Fellows Program has 75 Fellows (students) interning with 37 different organizations throughout the city. Participating students are recruited from Greensboro’s seven local colleges and universities, as well as, this year’s cohort includes students attending 13 universities and colleges located outside of Greensboro.
“As a first time Campus Greensboro Fellow, I pictured myself enhancing my professional development and I ended up receiving so much more. Surrounded by Greensboro’s industry leaders and connected to a community of motivated Fellows, I saw that I was not alone and there are many young professionals searching for their place in this world. I leave this Fellows experience with heightened confidence, an eagerness to continue growing into the best version of myself, and definitely knowing more about Greensboro than when I started.” says 2022 Campus Greensboro Fellow, Navia Stevenson.
Campus Greensboro would also like to thank Greensboro Downtown Parks, Inc. for helping make the event possible.
