As a student at a large university, I knew there were aspects of the University of Alabama that I had no clue existed, and I could only hope to discover those aspects before graduation. One such aspect was Alabama Heritage, something I fortunately heard about from a friend my junior year. That friend, a journalism student, had just finished up an internship at the magazine, and knowing that I wanted to go into publishing and internship experience means everything in that industry, she suggested that I apply. While Alabama Heritage was a magazine and I wanted to go into book publishing, I hoped that I would get something useful out of the experience, if only another thing to list on my resume. Now, on my last day, I can say I wound up getting so much more out of it than that.
