Council discusses creating more internships for students

City Council discussed fracking and starting more internships at the University for students at its meeting on Monday night.

First Ward council member Daniel Gordon is part of the Community Improvement Committee and said the committee plans on making more internships for students available in the fall, starting a student clean-up campaign and hosting rental orientations.

The rental orientations would teach students how to be better neighbors when living off-campus and Gordon said he wants to host City Council meetings at the University during the school year.

“It’s something we’re very passionate about doing,” Gordon said. “We want to provide ways for students to become involved.”

Gordon said it’s still too early to know if the internships will be paid or unpaid, but will know more once the school year starts later this month.

The next City Council meeting will be on August 19 at 7 p.m.
