    Internship Perks 

    For those who did not know, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Ice Cube were in Georgetown quite a few days ago! Part of my internship entails working at free screenings that various movie theatres in the DC, Maryland and Virginia areas hold. In order to promote movies, it’s essential to get the word of mouth out about the film. Anyway, the three men made an appearance to promote their new film. The movie was hilarious and I highly recommend going to see it (although I am not allowed to disclose the name of the film).

    Since I intern at an amazing company, my friends and I were able to get great seats. They let us go in before the line of people filtered in hurring to get their seats. This is one of the perks about being in publicity and promotions.

    One of the students that I had promoted the film to ended up showing at the screening with his friends which made me feel like I had been successful in getting people there; it was a nice feeling.

    Getting Places 

    Hi AU Community!

    This is my first post for the Intern Blog. I’m currently a Junior in SOC and I’m majoring in Film and Media with a minor in Marketing. I am currently interning at Allied-THA in the Farragut North area. It has been an amazing experience so far. Every one in the office has been supportive, energetic and really nice.

    Although I have spent my last three years in the DC area at AU, I have only ever taken the metro. However, this year I learned about taking the Metro Bus to get to where I need to go. Since there have been so many track delays on the red line, I decided to give the metro bus a go. After a couple of times it was comforting to know that DC has great public transportation in comparison to other cities. It’s great to have these options as a college student.

    I had to flyer in Georgetown one day for my internship and I was not sure about the best way to get there. Tip: If you take the Circulator from the Dupont metro to Georgetown it is only $1!

    Anyway, if you’re ever in a rut don’t be afraid to take the bus from AU to Dupont or from the Tenley Metro to Columbia Heights (which a lot of people surprisingly do not know about).

    Until next time,

      Great transportation tip! The buses are our unsung heroes and a lot of times they’re a lot easier to take in the train.
