I've worked in laboratories on campus relating to my field the past two years. Internships are relatively east to come by. Overall a satisfying experience.

I already answered this more in-depth in my overall review of the school, but I'll say a couple more things. The class sizes once you leave the gen eds are fine. They're too big in the gen eds, but that's true almost everywhere. The TAs are way more useful than the professors. This wasn't the case in Nebraska. In Nebraska, most communication went through the professor. Here, though, if you try to ask a professor about pretty much anything, you're wasting your time; they're just going to direct you to the TA.
