Maressa Toomire '16 | Major: Non-Profit Administration

"As a freshman, I was able to have an internship with Pregnancy Resource Center in downtown Grand Rapids. It was amazing to have that internship opportunity as a freshman, gaining the practical and basic skills necessary for my major as well as work with other professionals in the field so early on during my academic experience. My internship opportunity at Cornerstone was one of the best ways for me to solidify my decision of choosing to major in Non-Profit Administration."
