Name: Maddy Rathsack

Hometown: Manitowoc, Wis.

Major: Accounting

Year in school: Junior

Co-Op job: Tax intern at CliftonLarsonAllen LLP

I participate in the Co-Op program because: It gives me experience in my field. It also helps prepare me for my future and gives me insight into which field I would like to pursue after college.

Favorite LU faculty/staff member: Adjunct instructor Bob Martin

Lakeland is good fit for me because: I really enjoy the small campus environment and being able to make close relationships with the professors.

Lakeland University is the only Midwestern school that offers Cooperative Education across all majors by allowing participating students to gain on-the-job knowledge and academic credit for their work. LU students can earn up to 25% of the degree through work and post-work reflection.

Each year, we welcome more students who are interested in the benefits of Co-Op and the ability to connect with a lengthy list of corporate and organizational partners who support the program and our student’s learning.
