O’Neill Criminal Justice major Tyler Adams started his first college internship before he even started classes. It was summer 2022 and he had just finished high school.
“In previous years, I would be in conditioning for the next school-year sport, but that was over,” he says. “And I’m just not a person who can sit and do nothing.”
Even though he was still three months away from beginning his courses with O’Neill, Adams was already plugged in. He received an email from the O’Neill School with an opportunity connected to his major: an internship in emergency management with the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
“It connected with working in public safety and gave me the opportunity to help and meet new people in a new environment while gaining experience for my future career,” he explains.
