Ask a Badger
My liberal arts education has taught me the importance of communication and understanding different perspectives, which I've been able to apply to my internship experiences. As an intern at the Madison Public Library Foundation, it's important to be able to work well with the team and ask questions as you further develop your skills and discover your passions.Grace Featherstone, L&S Communication Arts Major 2017
