Tucker Center welcomes summer intern Alyssa Ruhland
The Tucker Center welcomes Alyssa Ruhland as a summer 2012 intern. This fall Alyssa will be a senior majoring in psychology at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts. Alyssa grew up in Minneapolis and throughout her life has always been active in sports. Currently, she is a senior captain for the women's ice hockey team at Holy Cross.
Through interning at the Tucker Center, Alyssa desires to gain insight and understanding into the many benefits—and also issues—associated with girls and women in sport. She also wants to learn structured research methods and understand their practical implications. Her plan is to gain experience in this field to better prepare her for future graduate studies in clinical psychology.
