come back and see your name on a door where you used to have classes,
and work with former faculty
members as peers feels sort of surreal... Actually it’s the ultimate
type of flattery to get asked back to teach at your alma mater. I’m
having a great time coming back.”

For her, National Geographic is new chapter
Jenny Faubert knew it was a long shot when she applied for the National
Geographic summer internship in Washington D.C. After all, only six college
students are selected nationally, and a UW-Green Bay student had never
received the honor.
Then came the surprise of her life. “I was in
shock,” she says. “They called my cell phone and told me who
they were. I was speechless.”
Faubert, a senior urban and regional studies major
from Green Bay, will travel to D.C. this summer to intern in the photography
section of the magazine. Her responsibilities will include finding the
photo of the day, which is the most popular feature on www.nationalgeographic.com,
and creating a photo gallery of her own.
UW-Green Bay Profs. Marcelo Cruz and William Laatsch
were among those who encouraged her to pursue the internship based on
her academic performance and potential.
“I think this is my stepping stone to what I
eventually want to do in my career,” says Faubert, who lists study-abroad
tours in Europe and South America as college highlights. “I would
eventually like to work for a tourist-travel magazine.”
For now, though, she plans to enjoy her last semester
of college while anticipating this chance of a lifetime.
“I’m probably going to be in shock until
I get there,” she says. “It verifies that all the hard work
I’ve done in college really has paid off — that’s the
biggest thing for me.”
