I had two different out of state internships in college (one was actually on the other side of the world).

 

I guess I’m not really sure what you’re asking for though.  I rented a room for the summer (a sub-let in an apartment) and I worked at my job 40 hours a week.  I hung out with my roommates and took a couple weekend trips (one to the beach and one to NYC with DH).

 

It was really easy and really wasn’t all that different from living anywhere else.

 

Maybe if you have a more specific concern I could help better ….

Technically I had three out-of-state internships. 

 

One was out in Colorado. It was actually at the U.S. Olympic Training Center so I got to live in dorms there for the whole summer. They have a big intern program so I was with about 15 other interns. It was an awesome experience. 

 

I went back two years later for a five-month internship. This time I did not live on the complex but found someone looking for a roommate. Again it was awesome, especially since I knew the area. 

 

After that, I did a two-year internship at my current place of employment in Missouri. It was a bit of a culture shock, as I’m from the Northeast. But again a great experience. They hired me full-time when my internship was up and I’m still working here eight years later!

My Fiance did out of state internships when he was in college and it was the best career move he could have made.  Where he previously lived, there were not many good job opportunities for his field, so he took internships in NC where the opportunities were much better.  Those internships led to his full time job and he relocated to NC.  We met not long after he moved here full time.  Don’t let the location stop you if the opportunity is in a field you want.  Good experience will go a long way on your resume.
