"I truly believe that I would not be where I am today without Utica College and the internship program." "I truly believe that I would not be where I am today without Utica College and the internship program. While talking to my coworkers, I have realized that while I volunteered 560 hours, other people volunteered for 200-300 hours during their internship. This shows that the Child Life Program has to be the best! Everything that I have learned through the child life program has been applied to my everyday work hours from contact sheets to HIPPA forms and obtaining private information."
