We also had a game at the end of the workshops called Who Wants To Be An Intern. The game had a similar layout to Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Students were able to test how much they learned at the prior workshops and compete for prizes. It was hosted by our very own incredible Comm Professor David Morrin.
