For students in the midst of the summer internship search process, OCR can seem like the only option.

However, since 2007, RealArts@Penn through the Kelly Writer's House creates a means through which a student of any college can be connected with internships in the entertainment, journalism and publishing fields. Students, primarily in the College, apply to up to two companies that the program has relationships with.
