Advice on choosing a site from a Summer 2016 student:
If you like new adventures and a challenging environment, I highly recommend doing your fieldwork a new place/state. I am so happy that I went out of my comfort zone and I believe it helped me gain much more experience than I would have if I did my fieldwork in Harrisonburg. I recommend starting your search early so you have options and can pick one that you are most interested in. I feel I was very fortunate to have enjoyed my internship as much as I did without having much background with adaptive sports. I do wish prior that I had enrolled in more class courses about adaptive education because I believe that would have helped me while completing my fieldwork. I am glad that I did my internship earlier than most students because it helped me really get a feel of what I want to do with the rest of my life and what career path I want to head down.
