The Outdoor Campus
Ryan Rothenberger, Class of 2006

Interning at The Outdoor Campus as the Volunteer Coordinator Assistant was one of the best experiences I had as an undergraduate student. From this experience I was able to deal with real life situations you can not teach in the classroom.

Some of the different responsibilities I had were assisting the volunteer coordinator with planning and coordinating both adult and youth volunteer projects. This included interviewing and scheduling volunteers, planning and assisting special projects, assisting in managing a large volunteer staff, working the information desk to meet programming needs and recording accurate data in the volunteer works computer program.

This internship has helped develop skills I will be able to take with me in whatever career path I decide to take. Interning at The Outdoor Campus was a great way to end my time here at Augustana College.
