For UM Alumni

The Washington Internship Experience (WIE) provides an opportunity for students to work, study, and experience Washington, DC each spring and summer term. DC-area Ole Miss alumni are important contributors to the program – providing networking opportunities, professional tours, and even internships. All DC-area alumni are invited to participate in the Washington Internship Experience and can do so in a variety of ways:

Serve as an alumni mentor.


We would like to pair each student with a mentor who lives and works in the DC area. Mentors would be expected to spend time with their students and be a resource for them.

Attend our events.

Each semester we will host a variety of events that may be open to our alumni.

Host an event.

Invite the interns to an event that you host.

Alert us to internship possibilities or opportunities.


If you know of internship opportunities UM students should investigate, please let us know, and we will pass the information on to students through our listserv.

If you would like to be involved in the Washington Internship Experience, please contact Kristina Phillips, Coordinator for the Washington Internship Experience at 662-915-1224 or knp@olemiss.edu.
