  5. "One of my favorite moments this summer was when a bunch of the alumni interns gathered in one of our apartments and made food together, then ate and talked about the week and things we were passionate about to get to know each other better. It was a very simple, unplanned thing that happened, but gave me a level of comfort and belonging that I hadn't necessarily expected so early on." -Deedee

  7. "My favorite thing about this summer was getting to work and live in Portland, ME. I’ve never spent that much time in the Northeast, so it was a completely different type of summer for me. I can’t wait to go back to Texas and share my experience with my friends and family. " -Meredith
  8. One of the perks that comes with being a CIEE Alumni Intern is getting to do fun intern events and activities! Last night, we enjoyed a sunset kayak tour where we were lucky enough to have seen seals on one of the local islands around Portland. #cieealumniinterns #takeover #cieealumni #cieepeople #ciee #maine #portland #mainetheway

  9. "My favorite moment this summer has to be the 4th of July. All of the interns got together and celebrated by barbecuing in the green space behind our dorms. We played games and eventually moved over to the Eastern Promenade and watched the fireworks. It was a great way to spend a beautiful and important day." -Lee

  15. "My internship at CIEE taught me skills ranging from office professionalism to how to write for business to how to crack a lobster. The summer let me learn, grow, have a little fun, and get ready for a career." -Jenny-Marie
