Interns Needed for 2015 Season
We love our Danterns! They're the group of college-age staff members that handle all aspects of a Dans games - from pre-game set-up to on-field contests, taking tickets to working in the press box. Many of our Danterns have used this experience to propel them in their careers during or after college, such as:
- A top salesman with a media group in Springfield
- Staff member with the South Bend Cubs minor league baseball team
- A semester-long Internship with Duke University’s media partner
- Sports editor of SIU student newspaper.
