"I can't think of another job I enjoyed as much as being an Associate Intern with the Sea Dogs. Showing up every game to prepare the stadium, while gaining experience in a variety of game day aspects, was both fun and informative. The Sea Dogs front office as a whole was extremely welcoming, and everyone I came across was willing to help me grow into a better professional." - Quinn
