Athens, OH 2 September 2019 –
This past summer I got the opportunity to work with Turner Construction Company out in San Francisco, California. I was able to get the internship through the Russ College Career Fair that occurred last fall.
I worked for three months on the San Francisco Airport Terminal 2 Build Back project.
It was a great experience to oversee the construction work that was happening for several floors above an active terminal. It kept me busy and I learned so many new skills!
When I wasn’t working at the airport, I was getting as much hiking done as I could with my roommate. Without having a car, access to the best hiking spots were very limited. So, we stuck to the surrounding Bay Area. We explored Muir Woods (home of giant redwoods), summitted Mount Tam and trekked to hidden beaches all summer long.
By the end of the summer we were in some of the best shape of our lives just from the (surprisingly strenuous) hiking alone! Between these two activities I stayed active this whole summer getting the explore the city through construction sites and hiking trials. It is an opportunity I hope to have again!
