Lauryn Gavis headshotSU Communication major Lauryn Davis can't say enough good things about her summer internship. She writes on LinkedIn: "School is back in full swing but I can’t help but find myself wishing I was still in Vegas. This past summer I was given the amazing opportunity to intern with Station Casinos at Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa. As an intern I spent time rotating through different departments in the casino, mainly gaming and food and beverage, where I was able to work hands-on running day-to-day operations on the property as well as have the chance to work with other interns to identify and remedy points of friction in the company. The experience I gained with Station Casinos was truly life-changing and the people I met were unforgettable."

What an amazing experience, Lauryn! Congratulations! (Photo from LinkedIn)
