The Liberal Arts teaches you to ask the right questions - not the easy ones. You learn to look at what is happening in the world, and you start to see different biases as your preconceived notions are turned on their heads

After a couple of summer internships at Shopify, Trevor decided to go “all in” with a year-long internship at Clearbit, a data start-up in San Francisco, CA. His goal was to hone what he’d learned at Huron in an immersive work environment. Trevor was welcomed by the Clearbit team and given significant responsibilities in growth marketing.

“They gave me interesting projects to work on and the freedom to tackle my own interests.”

New friends made him feel at home with trips to tourist attractions, skiing, and on a birthday pub crawl. He also volunteered with the company’s fundraising project for the homeless population. Huron staff helped Trevor coordinate his leave, provided resources on workplace life, helped connect him with Huron/Western alumni living in the city, and checked in on his progress.

"I’ve made connections with people I feel I can count on to be future mentors and a support network."
