North Central College - Naperville, IL
Major: 
Art History major

Kristen recently earned an internship at the  prestigious Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. It’s a plum position, especially for someone interested in contemporary and controversial art, and provides on-the-job experience, an inside look at museum operations, and plenty of professional connections. “I couldn’t have done this without my professors, who encouraged me to apply for the position,” says Kristen. “In fact, as part of my application I included two research papers I had written for class.”
