What Does It Take to Be a White House Intern?

Tyler Lewis, USF St. Petersburg Political Science Senior & White House intern, talks about the work that the Office of Intergovernmental Affairs does. He also talks about what he's gotten out of going to USFSP.

Judithanne Scourfield McLauchlan, USF St. Petersburg Political Science Assoc. Professor, helped choose interns when she worked in the Clinton White House, so she knew the work that Tyler Lewis needed to do during his recent internship.
