Tailoring a wide network of professional experiences for OUA students and leading them through relevant cultural connections has been a stimulating challenge. During this rewarding journey, the students and I have found lots of tools for personal and professional development.

CLAUDIA, Spring 2021

"Hi, I'm Claudia, and I was an intern at the University of Oklahoma in Arezzo! As soon as I knew that I could do my internship at OUA I was relieved and excited by the idea: That was the internship that I needed to improve my speaking and writing in English. I study Languages for Intercultural Communication at the University of Siena in Arezzo, and this internship has been a big opportunity for me. Here I found a positive and friendly working environment, where teamwork is the key, and new ideas are always welcome! This internship helped me improve my translation skills and challenge myself to practice what I had learned at University. 


Local students, if you have the chance to do your internship here, you won't regret it!"

GIUSEPPE, Spring 2021

“Hi y’all! My name is Giuseppe and I am proud to say that I am an intern at the University of Oklahoma in Arezzo. When I applied for this position I was about to start my last year at the University of Siena in Arezzo. My field of study is Business Languages and, to be more specific, I study English and Chinese. I have always heard a lot about this project with OUA,
and it was so exciting that many international students came here, so that I could meet new and interesting people and that’s just what happened!

In the past, I took part in several events where I had fun with all the OUA students. Now, it comes without saying, things are a bit different than they were two years ago.

Nevertheless, I decided that this internship
could give me the opportunity to improve many skills. I work with wonderful people who are always willing to help and who always welcome new ideas. This is the most satisfying part: I can create my own things so that I really feel as a part of the Rooney Family Center.
Moreover, the environment is so amusing and inspiring that you almost feel like home. It’s an unmissable opportunity!”
