The Wall Fellows program is a unique universitywide program designed to prepare students for high-level careers in major U.S. and international organizations.
Students are selected for the Wall Fellows program through a rigorous application process in the second semester of their sophomore year. The selection process includes a detailed written application and personal interviews with three groups: current Wall Fellow students, faculty, and the Wall Fellows Executive Board.
The two-year program includes a required three credit hour course each semester that covers specific nontraditional areas including interpersonal and communication skills, ethics, business and social etiquette, and cross cultural skills. These skills prepare the Wall Fellows for a series of internships, including at least one required full time semester internship away from campus with a major organization, as well as the opportunity for international experiences.
In addition, the Wall Fellows interact with key outside leaders in workshops and mentoring experiences designed to broaden their classroom learning opportunities.
Finally, the Wall Fellows serve the University and local communities by working with various organization, and hosting visiting dignitaries and working at community development events on behalf of the University.
