AUK Welcomes New Dartmouth Interns for Spring, 2018

The American University of Kuwait has welcomed two interns from Dartmouth College, Devon Kurtz and Arjun Bhatt.

Devon will be working at the Public Relations and Marketing Department, the Writing Center, and Office of Admissions. He is a member of the class of 2020 at Dartmouth College and is studying economics, classical literature, and English. Devon was an intern for State Senator Donald Humason and was later appointed to the Massachusetts Governor's Statewide Youth Council advising Governor Charlie Baker and other top state officials on the opioid addiction crisis plaguing the state. On Dartmouth's campus, he is a managing editor at The Dartmouth Review, the college's conservative newspaper. He is also a part of the First-Year Student Enrichment Program, a group for first-generation college students. Speaking about his experience at AUK, Devon says, "Although my time at AUK has only just begun, the University's community has welcomed me with open arms. I am excited to work with students at the Writing Center, to help the Office of Admissions find new additions to the AUK community, and to be a part of supporting the University's image through the Public Relations and Marketing Office in the coming weeks."

Meanwhile, Arjun will be working at the Alumni Affairs & Career Development Department, the College of Business and Economics, and the Library. With experience in the education of underserved communities from elementary age schoolchildren to high school students in the US and abroad, Arjun looks to further his understanding of different approaches to learning across the world. In Dartmouth, he's also involved with the Dartmouth Entrepreneurship Network and the Dartmouth EMS, and has great love for both organizations. Expressing his excitement about the new experience, Arjun said, "I am excited! I am absolutely enthralled by the country of Kuwait, and am very happy to be working at AUK. Go Wolfpack!"

The internship opportunity comes as part of the AUK-Dartmouth Internship Program whereby students from both institutions can spend time working in the other university for professional experience and personal growth.

Both interns will be working on campus until late May.
