This summer I interned for the John Wayne Cancer Foundation. Jerry Pinotti from Career Services is the best person ever. He was searching and searching for a good internship for me and found the John Wayne Cancer Foundation internship in California.

I think the environment of homeschoolers is very similar to college. You’re sitting down with your books, you have to study on your own and take initiative of your own education.

The classes are small at CUC so you really get to know the professors.  Last semester I was in an education class with only 6 students.
