Students at Marymount’s new Northern California campus will have the opportunity to work with social service agencies, interning with individual businesses or community business associations, conducting research for public agencies, or pursuing independent research projects suited to the Lake County location.
This fall two well-qualified, upper-division students, Gwendolyn “Joy” Green and Kaya Morris, have been given the opportunity to be pioneers at the Lakeside Campus. They are living in Lake County and earning degree credits through experiential learning, including internships, service, research, and online course work.
Joy, a liberal arts major, describes her experience at Lakeside as “completely exhilarating” and adds that she couldn’t be happier. Joy is currently in the midst of doing research for her Capstone Project and is interning at the county’s largest non-profit organization, Lake Family Resource Center, whose mission is to strengthen their community one family at a time. In addition, she has been given the opportunity to work with many different organizations and also with the only domestic abuse shelter in the county.
Joy’s says her “favorite aspects of living in Lake County include the amazing views, the air and the people.” She adds, “It is a unique and valuable opportunity for Marymount students who are in search of meaningful Capstone or Master’s thesis and gives students like her the chance to expand their knowledge, experience and to learn!”
