Virginia General Assembly Session Likely to be Tumultuous, ODU Political Scientists Predict

General Assembly Internship


The Governmental Relations office hosts a General Assembly Internship program each year. ODU students have the opportunity to work closely with Virginia state legislators and their staff. Students develop professional skills while strengthening their political knowledge and gain a unique understanding of Virginia's General Assembly. The full time, paid internship is held from January-March of each year. The group is advised by Annie Morris, Assistant to the President for Local, State and Federal Government Relations.


Applicants must be an undergraduate or graduate student at Old Dominion University to apply for this program. You must be able to reside in Richmond from Monday-Friday during session months. This internship is typically held from early January to early March of each year. Students are encouraged to take online classes during this internship period. Housing is provided at a local Richmond hotel.


"I was offered another internship during this one, and I was approached quite a few times about other jobs that I could jump into. It was great making these connections that will last a lifetime." 2019 Intern

"I enjoyed the ability to interact with the Senators, Delegates and their aids because I was able to learn from everyone." 2019 Intern
