    Interning with USA Today College: The Saga Continues 

    Richard at USA Today

    By Dean’s Intern Richard Fields at USA Today

    In case you’re wondering why I look so happy in this picture, I will explain that shortly.  But first I’d like to start from the beginning.  Last semester I interned with USA Today’s Video Production Team, helping produce a number of their daily shows and even attended a red carpet event.
