Melissa Andrade '14, a double major in American studies and cultural and historic preservation, spent her summer interning with the Newport
Historical Society, a local nonprofit focused on preserving the city's history,
culture and buildings. Under the guidance of executive director Ruth Taylor,
Andrade helped to plan "Spectacle of Toleration," a yearlong project exploring
questions about the role of tolerance and religious liberty in society.
"I really do recommend doing an internship if you can,"
Andrade says. "Most places will be very happy to give you an internship because
they want you to gain the experience, and they want to be able to hire people
like you in the future who have that experience."
