Our CDIC advisors are available to assist students from the first year through graduation in choosing the academic major and career options that are right for them and ensuring that they have the professional development and networking tools to make those aspirations a reality.

Internships and More

Paid and unpaid internships for students are secured through the CDIC's combination of one-on-one advising with extensive resources and the valuable connections that will favorably position students for that first internship, job or admission to graduate school. Summer internships or internships during the fall or spring semester are encouraged for all Assumption students. We’re proud of our proven success:

  • 83% of Assumption’s 2019 graduates completed at least one experiential learning opportunity during their college career
  • 95% of the class of 2019 was employed, pursuing additional education, enlisted in the military or participating in post-graduate service opportunities six months after graduation.

  • Choose a major and career path that fits your strengths
