A Priceless opportunity for college students to travel the world, learn about other cultures and broaden their horizons was presented to Ashland University students Thursday afternoon. Internship and career opportunities are currently available in the U.S Foreign Service to all eligible students.

Dr. Michelle Jones, a Diplomat in Residence and Kelly Hunt, a public affairs officer for the U.S in Afghanistan talked about their experiences in the program and all the benefits of it. The internship is about ten weeks long, and a career with the U.S Foreign Service could last anywhere from one to two years.

Dr. Jones says the experience is amazing, and one of the best decisions a student could make. Internship applications are currently open, and are due March 3rd. An officer test is given three times a year and is the key component for entry into the service.
