Here’s what some of our most recent interns had to say:

“Being an intern at Monona Terrace was an excellent learning experience. Getting the opportunity to work with all of the talented people at Monona Terrace and feeling like part of the team is an experience that I will never forget. During my time here I have been a part of PR, event planning and volunteer coordination for both small and large scale events and gained valuable leadership experience. The Community Relations Department is full of talented individuals who have a lot to teach their interns. I would recommend this internship to anyone interested in learning more about what is involved in making community events successful.”

Nichole D., Spring 2016

“My internship at Monona Terrace was an engaging learning experience. Not only are the people in the Community Relations Department talented, friendly, and motivating, they also trust their interns with a lot of responsibility. While interning, I worked on projects in PR, social media, event planning, and volunteer coordination. For me, one of the most rewarding aspects as an intern at Monona Terrace is that I always felt like an essential part of the team.”
