As the semester ends so does my internship with Sodexo. I get blamed or praised for the ups and downs of the OR from my friends and teammates, but through all the fun and jokes I know that I have played a part in the upcoming of the OR. Through all the student feedback I could possibly gather, the surveys, and keeping my eyes and ears on the ground always, I have seen students grow happier with their campus dining experience. From survey monkey to cheese day, I have learned so much in this internship, different aspects of management and marketing.

Lettuce look back on this semester and be grapeful for it. I loved being able to provide Loyola students with an amazing dining experience with swipe plus events, movie nights in the OR, Sodexo just because, LUDAB, food puns, social media presence, and farmers market! Sodexo is an amazing group of people who want to make your dining experience better, so donut worry just because my amazing cointerns (and Fallon) are off, doesn’t mean that our boss Daniella won’t keep decorating the OR with her unhealthy addiction to large cardboard cutouts or taller-than-the-doorway rabbits hiding eggs around campus. Finally make sure to follow @LoynoDining on all social media platforms so you can Ketchup on all the amazing things that Sodexo does for us!

As students are heading into finals and the school year comes to an end, it is heartwarming to look back and think about all that we’ve accomplished. As a student intern here at Sodexo, I watched as the community’s voices were heard, and positive changes were made to improve the lives of the student body. From bringing mozzarella sticks back to campus, to the rise in fresh veggies and fruits in the OR, to the various different fun events we held such as Waffle Wednesdays, Elite Dinners, and Intern Cook-Off, its been a productive year. I am proud to say that, even in the smallest ways, I was a part of it. It only feels right that as my time at Sodexo ends, and I move into my next position on campus, the meme-worthy cereal logos I made for the cereal bar were finally replaced by the ones from the real companies.

The days are getting hotter, finals are near and the eagerness to get out of school is hitting. The Loyola University summer dining hours will be going up soon—be on the lookout! The school year is almost over, and so is my Sodexo Marketing Internship.

I applied in July expecting to increase my social media posting techniques, create flyers on Photoshop and write press releases. What I have gotten from the internship is more than I could have asked for (really, I didn’t know what some of these things were back in July!).
