Our Student Internships!

Four of our Upward Bound students have entered the professional world and are currently interns in different departments across Tulane’s campus. After their summer school ends at 12:30 pm, they head off to their internship and work from 1:00 PM to 4:30 PM. Our interns are absolutely loving the opportunity to have some real-life professional experience!


Jakori, Class of 2016, is an intern in Cudd Hall at Tulane University, which houses all the Dean’s offices. She works at the front desk, answering phone calls, emails, and helping her supervisor in day-to-day tasks.


Christian, Class of 2017, is an intern in Tulane’s Center for Public Service (CPS). She works directly with Avery Brewton, CPS’s Community Service Program Manager, and helps her with any tasks Avery needs done!


Janaé, Class of 2018, is an intern at HireTulane, our University’s Career Services Center. There, she works at the front desk, answering phone calls, greeting visitors as they walk through the front doors, and helping out with any other day-to-day tasks!


Julisa, Class of 2018, is an intern in Alcée Fortier, the History Department at Tulane. Her duties include filing documents, books, folders, etc. and helping her supervisor around the office. As you can tell, she is absolutely loving her internship!

Dallas Trip, Summer 2015


This past week, our scholars took a trip to Dallas to visit four different colleges: Southern Methodist University, University of Texas at Dallas, University of North Texas, and Richland Community College. We sat in on information sessions with admissions counselors and took a campus tour with student tour guides at each college. Even though it almost 100 degrees outside, our scholars loved getting a feel for the campuses. They were eager to learn about each university’s application process and requirements, offered majors and programs, and the student life on each campus. Check out our Photo Gallery for more photos of UB’s trip to Dallas!
