Summer on the Cuyahoga (SOTC) is all about exposing the best young talent to the abundance of professional opportunities in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio, home to the Cuyahoga River. It’s a unique summer internship program open to students from our eight partner schools: Allegheny, Case Western Reserve, Colgate, Cornell, Denison, Oberlin, Ohio Wesleyan, Smith, and University of Chicago. The program brings together 70-80 students for an intensive summer immersion program designed to help interns explore the professional, civic & social offerings of the Cleveland area. SOTC offers students challenging internships, community introductions, alumni connections & group housing for the summer.

Our mission is to recruit talented college students for summer internships and a unique immersion into the community with the ultimate goal of having graduates build networks and permanently locate in Cleveland and Northeast Ohio (NEO).
