Spring Housing Internship Program
A pilot program, called Spring Housing Intern Program (SHIP), is being introduced for the spring 2008 semester. During the semester, individuals who are at least 18 years old and are participating in educational internships in the greater Washington, D.C., area will have the option to live in vacant rooms in campus residence halls. These individuals will be given the opportunity to experience campus life at CUA while engaging in a meaningful, educational experience at an organization, government office or other location in Washington, D.C. The development of this program is a collaborative effort between the offices of conferences and event planning, residence life and housing services. For more information, visit http://ship.cua.edu.
