People were all talented, eager to help, nice, and smart. I made lots of friends and connections who made me look forward to coming in to work every day (and made it not seem like work). I learned an incredible amount about the world of advertising, how an office operates, and creative/art direction. I got to work on real client projects as well as a hypothetical intern project.
I wish the internship would have lasted longer.
Advice to Potential Interns
If you've never worked in advertising, or don't think you're interested in it, don't write off this internship. It is still an amazing learning experience.
