Student Tyler Lewis has returned to USF St. Petersburg after a four month internship in Washington, DC. But it wasn’t an internship of making photocopies and going on coffee runs - the political science major worked at the White House in the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs. We talk to Lewis about his experience on University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
