"My Senior Internship exposed me to fields of scientific discovery I had not previously considered, but am now passionately invested in, as well as taught me valuable career skills that have served me well in my time at college. The people at GRC also encouraged me to find projects I was interested in, allowed me to pursue them, and even used my projects to advertise and promote the company. I would say that working at GRC was one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life, and when I look back, I am extremely thankful to Rocky Hill for giving me the support I needed to find this internship.”
