a college student's summer

Hello everyone-

I am a freshman in architecture and I looking foward to gaining more exp. in the design industry over the summer. As a freshman, I’m not qualified for most of the internships out there and was wondering if any of you knew of any or perhaps what you did over the summer as a design student and why it was benefcial to you… thanks!

Not qualified… that’s BS. At this stage of the game you just want to learn what happens in a design office. No you won’t be hired to do design or even basic production. Do you have good modeling skills. Maybe you can intern and cut foam core as well as do some errands. Call and ask. If you are willing to work for free a couple of days a week I bet you’ll find something.
