WSU’s Career Development Center provides real-world experience to Shockers before graduation through our Cooperative Education and Internship Programs. By participating in a co-op or internship, WSU students can have it all: a packed resume, college credit, professional connections, a paycheck — and in many cases, a job offer — putting them light-years ahead of the competition.

How has your WSU co-op helped you? I was able to learn new and very important skills that could not be easily taught in the classroom. Having a co-op helped me utilize what I learned in class in the workplace. I was able to develop my interpersonal skills and be part of a great team!
Favorite thing to do in Wichita: I like trying all the amazing restaurants in Wichita, as well as finding hidden ones!
