Summer ACTIVATE students expand their skills, networks

Ten Foresters put their education to work this summer while living together and interning in Chicago through the Lake Forest College ACTIVATE: Summer Internship Program.

Communication major Julie Lord ’21 took a broadcast interest she explored working at the Julie Lord '21College’s student radio station, WMXM, to a new level as a marketing and promotions intern for Cumulus Media, the third largest owner and operator of AM and FM radio stations in the United States.

“I got to help out with special events, the morning show, and I even wrote articles for the website,” Lord said. “I loved living in the city and walking to NBC Tower every morning.”

Ben Moskow ’20 spent his summer working as a cyber security intern in the corporate office of HUB International, a leading North American insurance brokerage.

“I made sure peoples’ accounts stayed secure and that data didn’t get accessed by anyone outside the company,” Moskow said. 

Putting what he learned in the classroom to work was a key takeaway for the finance and computer science double major.

“In my corporate finance class, we learned a lot about mergers and acquisitions through different Harvard cases. At HUB, I got to put that to use because HUB is really big into mergers and acquisitions. This will help me in my career, as now I have experience in the corporate environment,” he said.Ben Moskow '20ACTIVATE students explore Chicago, including the city's famed theater district.
