Five Non-Job Related Lessons I learned at Camp Reality:

by Stone Ward Staff

The real world, a concept that instills a chilling fear into almost every soon-to-be college graduate. For many college students, the closest they’ve been to the real world is attending their 8 a.m. classes; possibly the source of the fear or perhaps it’s fear of the unknown.

What’s Trending on Social Media Day?

by Stone Ward Staff

June 30th was #SocialMediaDay – a day to celebrate the ever-growing improvements and changes happening within the realm of social media. As social media continues to develop and transform, so do its trends. We see trends through ways of interacting more efficiently and, for businesses, marketing more effectively.

Camp Reality: What To Expect?

by Stone Ward Staff

Camp Reality is what we at Stone Ward call our internship program. And the name lives up to the expectations. 

Internships are a funny thing. You may pursue opportunities in a “big city,” assuming the companies have “big” work projects and offer a more immersive experience. You think the program is a “bigger deal.” Did it ever cross your mind you can find something just as valuable in Little Rock? 

The Fourth Floor Intern

by Stone Ward Staff

As this summer’s fourth floor intern, I have many advantages over the rest of the interns. I am, of course, higher than them, and with that comes the benefit of one extra flight of stairs to climb every morning. It is safe to say my legs are exactly one flight of stairs stronger than any other interns’ (except maybe Jack – he’s got some serious calf muscles hidden under those khakis).

Branded for Excellence

by Stone Ward Staff

Coming into a new office can lead to some major culture shock. Stone Ward’s Camp Reality internship program is designed for us to know that we would be making a difference and working on actual client projects, not coffee runs. While you may still have to get coffee, it’s because you’re on a commercial shoot at one in the morning, and the talent is beginning to get tired.

Fried Chicken, Anyone?

by Stone Ward Staff

Interning at Stone Ward has allowed me to experience a lot of cool and exciting opportunities, but working with Lee’s Famous Recipe Chicken for the past eight weeks has hands down been my favorite. Not many people from the office have a chance to experience the deliciousness of Lee’s Chicken, so I consider myself blessed. 

A Glimpse Into Reality

by Stone Ward Staff

Reality is defined as the state of things as they actually exist, as opposed to an idealistic or notional idea of them.

Work full-time, take nine hours of summer class, visit nine states, follow a college sports workout plan, rehab a torn ligament, plan two major events and stay on top of everything else that life throws at you. That's an easy summer, right? 

Expect the Unexpected

by Stone Ward Staff

From the moment I stepped out of the elevator on my first day at Stone Ward, I was caught by surprise to see multi-colored walls and artwork. I know people who have gone through the Camp Reality before and thought I had a general idea of what to expect — but I was wrong.

Three Times to Say “Yes” in Work and Life

by Stone Ward Staff

As a Camp Reality intern, a phrase I’ve heard many times around Stone Ward is “we don’t say ‘no’ too much.”

In one way, this phrase means saying “yes” to taking on obligations, meeting clients’ needs and helping co-workers. It means getting a job done well and on time with a positive attitude.

Social Video Viral Trends

by Stone Ward Staff

Let’s venture back in time…a time that was much simpler. A time before Facebook ruled the world. The time is 2013. Believe it or not, social media hasn’t always been a thing, but viral video trends have always been a social media favorite. 

Building Good at Our House

by Stone Ward Staff

Being “good” at Stone Ward is just part of the culture. In work, in life and in service, employees are seeking to build good all around them. Through Camp Reality, I have been exposed to many good things. But, out of all the good moments I have experienced, my favorite has been serving a meal at Our House.

Camp Reality: My Summer in the Real World

by Stone Ward Staff

College students like myself often regard the real world as a bleak, daunting place where there is all work and no play. It is the place we never thought we would reach, yet here we are, standing at its doorstep.

Camp Reality has taught me to go right ahead and knock on that door.

Food for Thought - Behind the Scenes of the Babybel Sculptures

by Stone Ward Staff

As cliche as the title sounded, I thought it was pretty apropos for the subject of creativity. Creativity is defined as the ability to perceive the world in new ways, to find hidden patterns, to make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena and to generate solutions. Notice that the definition doesn’t state how creativity is achieved, just that it is an ability — one that we all have since we are able to think (hopefully).

“Remember the Titans” Moments as a Stone Ward Intern

by Stone Ward Staff

Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved the movie “Remember the Titans.” Each time I watch the movie, I leave energized, amped up and with a few less friends…I can quote every single line in the movie, and it’s not a crowd pleaser among peers.
