A Fantastic Summer
I had no idea this program would lead me to one of the most amazing experiences in my life.
–Katherine I., 2018 Alum
Delaware North Company at Yellowstone National Park, Montana
Working in Yellowstone was my very first job. It was weird and scary at first, but I learned how to work in a team (not just for a school group project, but to run a whole store!), how to establish myself in a workplace, and how to deal with bosses and customers.
I never used to think how big the United States actually is and how many cool places there are. I saw vast farming fields, Chicago at night, Mount Rushmore, the genuine Wild West, and pure wilderness when I came to Yellowstone. The most valuable knowledge I gained this summer was of nature and the country that I live in.
I got to see things I could only imagine before.
I met so, so many international students, and it’s been a blast! People from Croatia, Lithuania, Colombia, Taiwan, Romania, France, Turkey, Albania, Dominican Republic, Poland, and Russia. Living in the dorms had me in culture shock while still being in the U.S. I became quite close with two Croatian girls, Eva and Matea, and we’re meeting up in New York after the program!
