MSW Interns

Residential Life MSW Interns

Binghamton Residential Life offers private case management services right in our residential communities. Our staff of graduate student interns from the University's Master of Social Work (MSW) program are here to help our residents navigate and adjust to life on campus, and support their transition to young adulthood by providing assistance with social, behavioral, emotional and academic concerns.

The MSW intern program is a private, not confidential, resource for students. MSW interns may be obligated to report information to the University's Title IX coordinator.

MSW interns help by:

  • Meeting with students in distress or in need of assistance
  • Providing a safe, private and accepting space for students to discuss their needs or concerns
  • Assisting residents with resolving roommate issues or interpersonal conflicts
  • Helping students build healthy boundaries and relationships with others
  • Building connections for on-campus students to help them with a sense of community at Binghamton University
  • Conducting wellness checks on residents who may need some additional support or be struggling with self-harm, mental health concerns or concerns for safety and wellbeing
  • Implementing ATOD referrals to provide an educational opportunity for students who may be struggling with alcohol or substance use
  • Helping students understand the resources and support on campus and to connect with those resources
  • Partnering with Residential Life student and professional staff to better support our students

We work with a new group of MSW interns each year.

I wanted to go into social work because of my compassion for others, and to also use my own experiences to help make a difference! I am also excited to be a part of the Bing Res Life MSW Program this year because I used to live on campus during my time in undergrad! I want to use my experience from living on campus, as well as attending Binghamton, to help connect with students and provide any support they may need! :)

I am going into the field of social work because it provides an opportunity to help and develop relationships with people everyday. As an intern with Binghamton Res Life, I hope to connect with students and become someone they can always turn to throughout their college careers. I am very excited to get to know many different students and support them whenever needed, while also helping them grow and succeed!

I am pursuing social work because I want to be able to provide care and resources to people to help them create a stable and healthy foundation for themselves, and hopefully support them in their journey to a more positive life. I am excited to be in the Bing Res Life MSW program because it provides me with the opportunity to support college students, like myself, with their journey over their next few years.

I wanted to go into social work after speaking with a family friend of mine who is currently a social worker supporting individuals medically affected years later from being at ground zero on 9/11. She opened my eyes to the benefits of supporting others in their times of need, and how social workers can empower individuals to work through difficulties and navigate life in their own way. I am excited to become a member of the Bing Res Life MSW Program because I want to connect and create supportive environments for students, provide resource information, help students feel included in the Binghamton University community and partner with groups on campus!

I decided to pursue social work because I wanted to work in a field in which I could work with and for people in need of support. I am a people person and I love talking and listening to others, and hope to use my skills and interests to be a resource for the populations I serve. I am so excited to be a part of the Bing Res Life MSW program because I think it will be an amazing opportunity to work with students and exercise the skills and knowledge I obtain from the MSW program. I am really looking forward to working with Binghamton students to ensure that they have a caring and supportive environment within their community, and I hope to lend a smile and an ear to anyone who needs it!

I want to go into social work because mental health is something that I’m really passionate about and going into the clinical side of social work is my goal. I am super excited to be working with Residential Life this year to better serve the campus community as I myself also lived on campus! I can’t wait to meet all of you and help you feel more at home at Binghamton.

Hi, my name is Renee! I am originally from the Bronx, but I started my undergraduate here back in 2015 (shoutout to BEP ‘15!). Coming from where I come from has driven me to pursue a dual degree masters in social work and public administration to facilitate real change. I’ve been at Binghamton for quite some time and I know campus resources like that back of my hand – so I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and offering my support as a resource to those who need it!

Social work hasn't always been my chosen destination, but now I know that it's the right one for me! I initially entered the field by working in a nursing home and fell in love with the work I did there. Now, after working with older adults for over 5 years, working with college-age young adults will afford me a chance to get to know a different set of people with different experiences and priorities than those that I currently work with in my full-time job. Finally, I'm a big fan of cats (love them!) and I enjoy playing video games, coloring, and knitting or crocheting in my spare time. I'm excited to get to know you as I transition into working with Binghamton University Residential Life!
