Many students participate in internships to complement what they are learning in the classroom. Some of the positions available include internships in marketing, human resources, digital advertising, and more.
The Office of Student Affairs houses everything that Medgar Evers students need to succeed. This division is committed to providing services that meet student’s psychosocial needs and complement their academic growth and personal development. The OSA encourages students to take leadership roles on campus and facilitates this by connecting students with clubs and organizations, intercollegiate athletics, peer mentoring opportunities, and service-learning projects. Other leadership activities include leadership lunches, alternative spring break, and the National Society of Leadership and Success. The Center for Women’s Development and the Male Development and Empowerment Center are also great resources for those looking to participate in personal development with peers.
Student-led organizations make a great way to meet peers with similar interests. A few of the options that may interest business students are the American Advertising Federation. Enactus, Society of Public Administration, and Talk Parallel Podcast Club. There are both intramural and intercollegiate sports teams on campus. The athletic department currently sponsors 13 varsity sports that hold membership in the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) City and the University of New York Athletic Conference (CUNYAC).
