    live work and learn together in the city It provides students an opportunity to learn from community organizations all across Chicago After my freshman year it seemed foolish to live so close to a leading global city without ever truly accessing its resources And access I did I said I wanted to be a sponge but in reality I did less soaking up than I did drinking in of Chicago s myriad of social concerns Housing discrimination Education reform Mass incarceration Gender inequality Racial segregation The opportunities to learn and serve seemed infinite These colossal concepts made the program particularly challenging but equally rewarding Through coursework service opportunities and my internship at Chicago Neighborhood Initiatives led by David Doig 86 I realized that developing whole communities is difficult work but extremely worthwhile Wheaton in Chicago both complicated and corrected my overly idealized view of the city Chicago presents certain advantages and disadvantages but it ultimately makes me ask the question Who is my neighbor Answering that in a way that is for God for people and for creation may take me a lifetime but it will certainly make me a more complete person Hunter Hambrick 17 is an English Writing major The Wheaton In Chicago program has had over 200 students participate in it since its creation in 1998 Learn more about Wheaton In Chicago by watching the video below or visiting their website Interested in applying Photo Captions Hambrick in front of the Uptown theatre just a few blocks away from the Wheaton In Chicago apartments the 2015 Wheaton In Chicago group Posted January 27 2016 Tags My Wheaton Internship Video Global and Experiential Learning Subscribe to Posts Author Profile Students share an inside look at Wheaton College Contributors Alex Soholt 16 Alley Kammer 16 Alyssa Paulsen 14 Amy Early 16 Andrew Cuthbert PsyD 18 Andrew Sedlacek 15 Ann Szeliga 17 Anna Morris 16 Aseye Agamah 16 Beau Westlund 14 Brielle Lisa 18 Catherine Holt 15 Charlotte Hallstrom 16 Charlston Ong 19 Clementine Kane 18 Corinne Elliot 15 and Sarah Macolino 15 Dana Henderson 17 Daniel Tannous 16 David Batdorf 16 David Robinson 15 Elena Miles 15 Elliot Leung 17 Emma Schaafsma 17 Emmanuel Ndolimana M A 15 Erica Forkner 17 Ethan Jones M A 17 Hunter Hambrick 17 Hannah Benson 15 Jeff Camp 18 Jillian Hedges 17 Jon Thornton 16 Joohee Uhm 15 Jordan Heres 15 Josh Fort 16 Kate Fredrikson 17 Katie Mann 18 Katrina Burlet 15 Kendall Eitreim 15 Kelen Caldwell 17 Kirkland An 17 Lyndsey Pritchard 16 Marianne Millen Psy D 19 Marshall Hollingsworth 16 Matthew Adams 17 Michael Daugherty 15 Morgan Jacob 17 Natasha Zeng M A 16 Philip Christiansen 16 Stephen Westich 15 Tim Lyons 14 Travis Mercante 17 Tony Abiera M A 16 Tyler Hansen 16 Whitney Bauck 15 Young Ho Moon 15 Archives February 2016 2 January 2016 3 December 2015 2 November 2015 4 October 2015 4 September 2015 4 August 2015 5 July 2015 4 June 2015 4 May

  • Internship | Wheaton
    city and Macau in China was a Wheaton graduate That s how I heard of Wheaton for the very first time Coming from a journalism background at a small private Christian university in Indiana I never once thought about coming to Wheaton until my junior year when one of my professors presented the top three TESOL Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages programs in the nation which included Wheaton Later on I took my TESOL class about listening and speaking with professor Virginia Clough Yang M A 11 who also went through the TESOL program at Wheaton Next thing I knew I made my decision to apply I love Wheaton not only because it offers one of the best TESOL programs in the nation but I also love the fact that we get to celebrate cultural diversity I get to interact with people from all over the world whether they are from Nigeria South Africa Zambia Brazil or Mongolia They have shown me a world of excitement mystery and uniqueness I also appreciate how TESOL applies educational theories into everyday life By listening to Dr Alan Seaman and his experiences in Southeast Asia Dr Cheri Pierson and her Ph D studies in Europe and Dr Pam Barger s upbringing in Chicagoland what I am learning is more than just how to teach I also learn what to teach whether it is using technology or books social media or print media I love Wheaton not only because I can further my education but also because I get to grow in Christ I am starting to see and understand that we are all parts of God s ministry God has planned everything one step ahead for me He knows Wheaton is the right place for me to equip myself physically and spiritually Seeing all the internship opportunities ahead of me with organizations like World Relief ELIC Wycliffe Pui Tak Center and other resources in the greater Chicago area I am excited to explore a career that can blend TESOL and journalism together Natasha Zeng M A 16 is a student from Zhuhai China studying intercultural studies and TESOL at

internship opportunities based in Chicago Posted October 28 2015 Tags Campus Internship My Wheaton Spiritual Life The Liberal Arts Wheaton in Germany at Berlin City Mission Posted by Clementine Kane 18 Over the summer I spent two months in Germany with Wheaton in Germany an immersive history culture and language program In late June we began the internship portion of the program working at the Berlin City Mission an evangelical organization with functions ranging from neighborhood childcare to a youth hostel Along with several others I worked at the refugee reception center a temporary structure built to serve the overwhelming numbers of Syrian and Albanian refugees flooding into Berlin The building housed around 500 people while helping them apply for asylum learn German and resettle in government housing From the moment the refugees arrive exhausted tense and with almost nothing but the clothes on their backs they are welcomed and treated kindly and respectfully I worked an evening shift in the kitchen spending the rest of my days exploring the city s museums and cafes As I became friends with the Syrian children and their families I began to spend more of my free time at the center playing soccer giving the children much needed affection and attention teaching basic German to the adults and relaxing outside late into the evening as the family that adopted me discussed politics One evening towards the end of my internship I became part of the reception process first hand It was already about 11 p m and I was sitting with my adopted Syrian family listening to them talk about Middle Eastern politics and cuddling with the children Suddenly my friend Amr an Egyptian Coptic Christian who works at the center asked me to come with him A new Syrian family had just arrived and they needed to apply for asylum at the nearby police station before they could stay at the reception center Amr could speak with the family but he needed me to translate into German I felt adrenaline rush through me as I realized that for the first time something important depended on my familiarity with my second language My heart went out to the family who had traveled for multiple days with their whole life contained in two bags Their two young daughters were visibly exhausted and although the parents were wonderfully patient it was clear they were also fatigued We took them to the police station and working together Amr and I filled out the necessary paperwork for them Unfortunately the family had to wait at the police station for five hours while the papers were processed It was uncomfortable there so we returned to the center to retrieve food and blankets for the family It was a small gesture but their gratitude was evident and I hope they felt a warmer welcome into their new country than the police station offered I was joyful to be in the right place at the right time and grateful I worked at a center that allowed me such experiences Clementine

25 2015 Tags Global and Experiential Learning Internship My Wheaton Landing My Summer Internship with the San Diego Padres Posted by Lyndsey Pritchard 16 Who would you rather be Batman or Robin and why When the interviewer asked I answered quickly I was prepared for a question like this Batman I said Because he has the opportunity to influence more people After a brief discussion another question came Which is more important maintaining the team or achieving the goal This was more complicated so I thought carefully before responding I think it s important to strike a balance I said and continued on with support for my position These and many other questions were part of a series of three interviews I went through before receiving an offer for an internship with the San Diego Padres this summer I first learned about the internship online and wasn t sure if I realistically had a chance at it This was my home team the one that I had grown up watching I figured it was worth a shot and filled out the online application A little over a month later my interviews began and at that point I was very thankful for all the wisdom and guidance I had received from my business and economics professors and the staff at Wheaton s Center for Vocation and Career Here are three things I learned during my MLB interview process Wheaton s Center for Vocation and Career offers invaluable help with resume prep and mock interview practice Even though you may be interviewing for a job or internship with a candidate who seems far more qualified never give up because you never know what other positions the organization might be considering you for In person interviews are far more effective than Skype or telephone interviews even when struggling to balance class schedules softball games and flying long distances On the first day of my internship I was so nervous I arrived a half hour early just to make sure I was there on time Thankfully once I met my boss and the other members of the department I realized I had nothing to be nervous about One of the things I appreciated most about my internship with the Padres was that my boss explained the reason for each of my projects For example my first project included organizing all of the invoices for the Guest Services department Before giving me the invoices my boss explained that you can learn a lot about an organization by looking at what they spend their money on This project gave me the opportunity to learn what was important to the Padres Guest Services department Wheaton is a special place full of people who want to help you succeed from professors to coaches to the Center for Vocation and Career staff I am so grateful for the unique opportunity to combine my love of baseball and my hometown with a professional work setting This one of a kind opportunity truly embodies my Wheaton experience Lyndsey Pritchard 16 is a senior studying business economics What is your MyWheaton internship

  • Rigor & Transformation: My Experience with Music Education at Wheaton | Wheaton
    last semester at Wheaton I m so thankful that God used my misguided motivation to bring me into the music education department at Wheaton Music education is considered by many to be the most demanding major at Wheaton Whether or not this is true it was demanding enough to quickly challenge my motivation do I really love music and people What will motivate me to wake upevery day and pour into students What will keep me from burning out Wheaton did not expose these questions without providing resources for answers A spring break trip led to an internship which staged a gospel driven heart transforming summer Professors invited me into their offices and lives offering friendship challenges and opportunity Friends shared meals with me and while we ate offered their passion for Jesus and his work In its rigor music education exposed me to questions that could only be satisfied by Jesus When I began to discover his heart I found that it loves beauty relationship and work God loves music education because He made everything about it I want to impact kids lives The once ambiguous phrase is now poignant and inspirational I want to share Jesus through music because through it Jesus has found me David Batdorf 16 is a senior music education major with a French horn concentration Visit the Wheaton Conservatory website to learn more about Wheaton s music education program Photo Captions David hiking in New Hampshire David with the Symphonic Band French horn section Posted January 20 2016 Tags Conservatory My Wheaton The Liberal Arts The Arts Subscribe to Posts Author Profile Students share an inside look at Wheaton College Contributors Alex Soholt 16 Alley Kammer 16 Alyssa Paulsen 14 Amy Early 16 Andrew Cuthbert PsyD 18 Andrew Sedlacek 15 Ann Szeliga 17 Anna Morris 16 Aseye Agamah 16 Beau Westlund 14 Brielle Lisa 18 Catherine Holt 15 Charlotte Hallstrom 16 Charlston Ong 19 Clementine Kane 18 Corinne Elliot 15 and Sarah Macolino 15 Dana Henderson 17 Daniel Tannous 16 David Batdorf 16 David Robinson 15 Elena Miles 15 Elliot Leung 17 Emma Schaafsma 17 Emmanuel Ndolimana M A 15 Erica Forkner 17 Ethan Jones M A 17 Hunter Hambrick 17 Hannah Benson 15 Jeff Camp 18 Jillian Hedges 17 Jon Thornton 16 Joohee Uhm 15 Jordan Heres 15 Josh Fort 16 Kate Fredrikson 17 Katie Mann 18 Katrina Burlet 15 Kendall Eitreim 15 Kelen Caldwell 17 Kirkland An 17 Lyndsey Pritchard 16 Marianne Millen Psy D 19 Marshall Hollingsworth 16 Matthew Adams 17 Michael Daugherty 15 Morgan Jacob 17 Natasha Zeng M A 16 Philip Christiansen 16 Stephen Westich 15 Tim Lyons 14 Travis Mercante 17 Tony Abiera M A 16 Tyler Hansen 16 Whitney Bauck 15 Young Ho Moon 15 Archives February 2016 2 January 2016 3 December 2015 2 November 2015 4 October 2015 4 September 2015 4 August 2015 5 July 2015 4 June 2015 4 May 2015 2 April 2015 3 March 2015 2 February 2015 4 January 2015
