Spend time with God daily. I always encourage you do this before your day begins.
It’s no sin to ask questions!
We appreciate self motivated people … “it’s easier to pull someone back, then to push them ahead”.
Whiners and complainers need not apply!
Be aggressive in relationships without being “creepy”! You have three months to build friendships that last a lifetime!
If you have “nothing to do”, you always “have something to do”! Call, write, visit a student … it’s always the right thing to do!
Smile a lot, be quick to listen, say thanks often, and find opportunities to meet other staff members. They know you are an Intern, and they want to know about you. Don’t be pushy but don’t be shy either!
Don’t ever use the statement “it’s easier to ask forgiveness than permission”. Many troubles await you if you do …
Journal every day. Write down things you aren’t sure about, and things you have learned about yourself, ministry, and your calling.
Attend Church Weekly. Never skip a worship service because you have to "work." As an intern you are giving a lot and you need time to be feed yourself.
Have fun. Don’t take yourself or your job too seriously!
