Student Experiences 2021-2022

SASAH students undertake experiential-learning (EL) opportunities in an impressive variety of fields. Their internships, community-engaged learning, and independent projects help them to develop their skills, sample careers, follow their talents and passions, and build their confidence. In many cases, their experiences have a significant, sometimes life-altering, impact on their plans for the future.
