High school students attend campus career day

October 24, 2003

The annual Penn State Beaver Career Day held on Oct. 23, drew more than 300 tenth-grade students from ten area school districts to the campus. The purpose of career day is to provide students with the opportunity to meet and talk with professionals currently working in fields in which students are considering a career. A total of 23 adult participants were drawn from three of the campus academic advisory boards and the local community. Professionals in attendance varied widely in careers, including medicine, software production, education, health administration, accounting, small business, industry, and social services. Students were from New Brighton, Aliquippa, Freedom, Monaca, Montour, Rochester, Carlynton, Center, Beaver, and Ambridge High Schools. Each year the event is held in the fall and hosted by the Penn State Beaver Advisory Board, the Office of Student Affairs, and the Admissions Office. If you would like to participate in next year's program, or if you are interested in information about career day, contact Robert C. DeWitt, director of student affairs, at rxd1@psu.edu or (724) 773-3956.
