"The CSDS is the perfect supplement to a student's education. The center brings in world-famous names for conferences and enlightening forays into both past and current events which allowed me to develop a more full understanding of global politics. In the midst of such intelligent dialogue, it's impossible not to be in a constant state of learning. Interns have the opportunity to get up close and personal with the speakers, develop their professional portfolio, and be a part of one of the most phenomenal parts of campus; the experience is a wealth of knowledge and networking that should not be passed over."

"Interning at CSDS was an enriching, enlightening experience. The Center's conferences about international affairs are a great resource for students to gain insight about current, complex issues happening in our world. As an intern, I enjoyed attending, assisting, and promoting these conferences to the USF community. Additionally, I had the opportunity to conduct my own research project about Turkey's role as a U.S. ally in the Middle East, which gave me valuable knowledge as I look to pursue a career in international affairs in the future. Overall, CSDS is a gem for students to gain professional, global experience on campus."
