The Internal Audit Department has offered me a valuable experience as an undergraduate student. Working there has given me a view into the professional world, assisting on various internal auditing projects. These projects have challenged me to look critically at material and discern information, as well as an opportunity to work alongside dedicated staff members. The staff's work provides quality information, assisting University officials execute critical decisions, and they provide a team oriented learning experience for all student workers.
