” Good Sam is fantastic. Honestly, it is a great place for interns. I spoke to my field specialist about this program and how it should be prioritized over other agencies; I would like my fellow Bear peers to have an opportunity as I did. With the support and guidance that is provided, I absolutely recommend this internship to other students.”
