A former Olympic figure skater and UNC Ph.D. student is working to fight eating disorders

Rachael Flatt, an Olympian figure skater, is now a Ph.D. student at the UNC Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders. Flatt and Dr. Cynthia Bulik, also an award-winning figure skater, are studying how technology can aid in preventing eating disorders such as bulimia or binge eating. Flatt is motivated by her personal experience, remembering the pressures of the sport to always be thin and fit.

Senior Matthew Fedder worked for Nike as a brand intern in Chicago during the summer of 2018. The training center shown was converted from a church.

Here's where some UNC students interned this summer

Internships are an integral part of the college experience, and are often the first step in the post-graduation job search. This summer, students left Chapel Hill for Charlotte, New York City, Austin and even Africa. The Daily Tar Heel asked students to share some of the companies and organizations where they took their talents.
