Prindle Intern Spotlight: Natalie Weilandt
Natalie is a senior intern from Winnekta, Illinois. She is an English Writing major.
- Tell us about an ethics/social justice issue that is particularly important to you.
Because I’m about to graduate, I find ethical issues involving the job market particularly interesting. For instance, what are the ethics of internships? How do those issues vary depending on whether the internship is paid/unpaid? As an intern, what is your role in driving the morals of a company, and what is your responsibility when you come across a questionable situation? And ultimately, how can we (DePauw Students) use our education in ethics to benefit the existing world?
- What upcoming Prindle event are you most excited about?
The Piper Kerman Ubben Lecture and Q+A!
- Which class(es) at DePauw have most challenged and expanded your worldview?
I took Human Cultures with Mona Bhan my sophomore year, and I would say that that class is the one I refer back to all the time, even though I’m not an Anthropology major. It was definitely the class where I had the most “Aha!” moments about society and culture.
- What’s the coolest thing you’ve heard about in the past week? This could be something you read, listened to, watched, talked about, etc.
C+J Foods! It’s a company that Camille and Jacquelyn (our Prindle Graduate Fellows) are starting—their homemade, raw Boulder Bars are awesome!
- Tell us about something you’re looking forward to.
