Internship Profile: Laura Petro

Lauren at Clayton Harvest Festival

Laura graduated Magnum Cum Laude in December 2021 with a bachelor of science in Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management. Prior to graduation, Lauren interned during the Fall semester with the Clayton Chamber of Commerce.

“When I first started here at NC State, I was in a different degree program that I did not really fit into,” said Lauren. “I honestly did not know that PRTM was a major until I started looking around at the different opportunities that NCSU provides, and I was interested given my love of traveling and attractions.”

Read about Lauren’s experience and how she discovered the “perfect” major.
