SJMC Monday Memo | April 30, 2018

Volunteers needed for On Painted Street

The application is open for students to take over Drake’s student-led Instagram account @OnPaintedStreet. A different student takes over this account each week, all year. The summer dates will be from May 21 through Aug. 27. The summer accounts typically show off the cool internships and other opportunities that Drake students experience. Last summer, a student contributor worked with the Solheim cup and another had an internship with the Broadway League in New York City.

Students have also used the summer slots to show off how cool Des Moines is with visits to the state fair, art festival, or the farmer’s market. The content is used in admission materials, and on the www.drake.edu homepage. 

Interested students can fill out the application here: https://goo.gl/forms/FWtST4zG7P9a25dv1
