College Lifestyles – Online Summer Internship

CL is an online magazine with a focus on helping female college students (“classy co-eds”) live positive, healthy lifestyles. CL’s content aims to help readers manage their academic and social calendars, practice healthy, budget-friendly habits and build and maintain their professionalism as they prepare for life after graduation.

CL Founder, CEO and Editor-in-Chief Shelly Marie Redmond, MS, RD, LDN, is a registered dietitian nutritionist with a passion for teaching others how to live simpler, healthier lives. Along with CL’s managing editor, Debra Schreiber, and an experienced team of editors and team leaders, Redmond ensures CL’s message remains positive, helpful and credible as new content is added daily.

As a writer on the Health/Fitness/Nutrition team at CL, interns will:

  • Apply content learned in nutrition and dietetics courses to a unique online medium.

  • Practice researching and interpreting evidence-based content from credible, professional organizations and publications.

  • Submit one article per week to an editor with a strong nutrition background.

  • Gain vital interpersonal communication, prioritizing, time management and professional development skills as they work in a fast-paced, team-based organizational environment.

  • Work remotely from their campuses, following set guidelines and deadlines that fit their busy schedules.

Working specifically as a member of the Health/Fitness/Nutrition team will also give students the opportunity to:

  • Publish and promote articles focused on key health, fitness and nutrition topics relevant to their peers.

  • Build a portfolio of pieces displaying their advanced knowledge of nutrition topics and information that can be highlighted during their interviews with internship program directors.

  • Promote nutrition and dietetics as a well-rounded, evidence-based field of study.

  • Incorporate written communication into their skill sets as young professionals.

  • Practice how to respond appropriately to criticism and manage crises in real time as they would working under the guidance of a dietetic internship director.

  • Establish a strong online, professional presence.

What makes us different from other magazines that write about health?

We require each article to contain three credible citations from professional organizations or publications. This is especially vital to the Health/Fitness/Nutrition section of the magazine. Articles posted on our website frequently cite information from MyPlate.gov, eatright.org, Mayo Clinic, The American Heart Association, USDA.gov and more. We believe promoting accurate nutrition and health information in our articles is essential to the portrayal of healthy living and nutrition practices among young adults.

This is an unpaid internship program, but the skills and experience your students will learn and gain as part of the CL team make up for this offset. We offer college students the opportunity to work exclusively with other young adults pursuing similar career and professional goals. Strong writing and communication skills are vital to a student’s success as a future dietetics professional, and being fully virtual, working with CL makes developing these skills essential to an intern’s success in our program.

Call for Presentation Proposals – PSU Engaged Scholarship Inititaitve

Nutrition students are excellent candidates for this Engaged Scholarship Initiative.  Read below and consider applying if you’ve had practical experiences where you’ve been able to apply material learned in the classroom.

Student Lightning Presentations @ the 2014 Engaged Scholarship Expo

November 17, 2014  | Heritage Hall, Hetzel Union Building, University Park

How have you taken your education beyond the classroom? 

Maybe you scored an awesome internship, traveled the world during study abroad, or made groundbreaking progress through research. If so, you’ve had an engaged scholarship experience, and we want to hear from you!

The Council for Engaged Scholarship (COES) invites all undergraduate students to submit a proposal for a lightning presentation about how going beyond the classroom made a difference in their Penn State experience. Lightning presentations are designed to be quick and engaging—lasting no more than five minutes—so we can pack the most into the expo as possible.

If your proposal is selected, you’ll have the chance to showcase your experience along with other students at the upcoming Engaged Scholarship Expo in November! (Presenting at the expo is a great experience to talk about during future interviews, by the way!) If you’re interested, please submit your proposal by October 30, 2014.    

In the meantime, join the conversation about Penn State’s Engaged Scholarship Initiative on our Facebook and Twitter pages! 

Engaged Scholarship is defined as out-of-classroom academic experiences that complement classroom learning—undergraduate research, community-based learning, service learning, internships, capstone experiences, study abroad, study away, embedded travel courses.

The Council on Engaged Scholarship was formed in October 2012 to advance Penn State’s mission by creating a student-centered environment that fosters engaged teaching, research, and service. It is sponsored Undergraduate Education, Student Affairs, and Outreach and Online Education.
