Abstract

This report describes a thirteen-week internship program with the Office of Student Affairs and Services at Memorial University of Newfoundland. The general goals, specific objectives and activities performed to achieve these goals, as well as the effectiveness and limitations of the internship are described in the first two chapters of the report. These chapters specifically outline the experiences of the intern during his placement at the following divisions of Student Affairs and Services: Employment Services Centre; Higher Education Assessment and Research (H.E.A.R.) Unit; Wellness Centre; Counselling Centre; Student Housing; Student Recruitment and Promotion; and the Glenn Roy Blundon Centre. Chapters I and II also highlight the educational value of two conferences attended by the intern - the 1997 Congress of the Learned Societies (Memorial University) and the Canadian Association of College and University Student Services (CACUSS) Conference, Halifax, Nova Scotia. Details of the research project titled "The Factors Influencing Newfoundland & Labrador Level III High School Students' Choice of University to Attend Following Graduation" are described in the third chapter. Chapter III includes a rationale for the research, methodology, results and a concluding discussion. The discussion is completed by a summary list of recommendations intended to promote student interest in and enrollment at Memorial University of Newfoundland.
