Lynn Hu ’12, an architectural studies major, interned with the Rochester Museum and Science Center (RMSC) earlier this summer. Hu was responsible for creating drawings of the museum’s buildings for use in promotional materials, as well as designing exhibit cases and participating in general graphic design for the museum’s exhibitions. She was eager to learn more about the field of graphic design as a possible career choice.
She learned about the summer opening at RMSC in an e-mail from the Salisbury Center for Career Services and immediately applied. The internship, which ended earlier this month, was invaluable in teaching her that exhibit design could be a fun application of architectural studies.
Hu says she realizes that there is so much more for her to learn and experiment with before settling down at a job. After the internship ended, Hu took a graphic design course at the Rhode Island School of Design.
On campus, Hu has participated on the Budget Allocation Committee (BAC), the HWS Debate Team and Architecture Society. She also works in the Office of Communications as a student photographer.
As to career prospects, Hu explains, “There are just unlimited possibilities.”
