Experience Learning While Staying Active

The Best Way to Learn is to Do

Not all internships are created equal. Office memos and coffee runs aren’t what you signed up. So, leave the 9-to-5 behind as you complete an intensive, 375-hour internship in your chosen area of study. It’s hands-on experience designed to launch your career to the next level.

Health Fair (Because You Care)

Each spring, NGU’s Health Science Department organizes a health fair on campus. Serve your NGU family and our local community. Invite local vendors to provide health screenings. Analyze these efforts and help maximize their impact on the health of our region.

On Your Mark, Get Set, Inspire!

Want to gain experience organizing a health-based event while encouraging your peers to get active? We’ve got you! Each fall, help coordinate NGU’s “Feel the Hill” 5K. Plan, promote, and operate a community health initiative without leaving campus.
