Should I stay in this internship?

I'm a graduating student doing an engineering internship. I am at the main office but doing nothing but paper work: photo copying, organizing purchase requests, anything that involves paper work! Can you please give me advice? Should I leave this company or not? Thank you.

My first internship I spent the summer organizing old project photos. Don't get discouraged! Try to learn as much as you can from the conversations that you hear around you. Also, ask! If there is a meeting or a project you want to be a part of, ask if there is anyway you can help. Once you do graduate, if you take on full time employment there, things should change. If not, exploring new opportunities may be a good option. Hope that helps!
