Fall Externship CoHorts:

Each year over Fall Break, students travel for 2.5 days with fellow OWU students to participate in this career exploration program.  They shadow alumni during the day, network downtown with alumni at night, and experience life in a city.  Boston, Chicago, Columbus, and Washington, DC have served as past Fall Externship destination locations.  The Bishop Externship program is offered to students across all majors. Travel, lodging, and program event expenses are provided through an alumni donation.

Spring Externships:

Spring Break Externships do not have the formal structure of the Fall program, yet still provide an excellent opportunity for students to explore a potential career path, gain valuable job experience, and engage with OWU alumni working in various career fields and industries.
