The transition from backpack to briefcase.
The Luther College Rochester Semester is a new program intended to take advantage of the exciting opportunities available a mere sixty-five miles to the north of Decorah. It will provide a platform for students to engage in high impact, career-related experiential learning. Drawing on the College’s expansive alumni base in the area (one that includes professionals in all areas of business, industry, the arts, and sciences), students will have unique access to immersive learning opportunities designed to help them discern career paths, acquire concrete, job-related experience, and facilitate career networking. These immersion internships offer students the opportunity for 15-20+ hours/week of on-site work, with potential to extend the semester into a full time experience during an adjacent J-Term and/or summer if of interest to both student and provider. To complete the 12-14 credit program, Rochester Semester participants will also enroll in two Rochester-based courses taught by Luther College faculty.
