On March 23, the World Campus Alumni Society Board hosted members of the World Campus Student Advisory Board for two exciting projects at Penn State University Park. During the afternoon portion of their board meetings, the groups combined forces to say thank you to all who serve, through a service project called Operation Gratitude. Board members assembled care kits for first responders and active-duty military service members.
Later that day, the group enjoyed refreshments and a professional networking event facilitated by Cheryl Bonner from the Penn State Alumni Association’s Alumni Career Services office. They practiced initiating conversations in a networking setting, using fun and engaging methods. It was a great opportunity for Penn State World Campus alumni and students to expand their networking skills while also building professional relationships.
