My name is Caroline and I am a student at Central Penn College. I am just about halfway through my college career and am looking to hopefully soon start an internship. I am a marketing major. There are always exciting things going on around campus. Whether it is my volunteering or working on campus, it is very busy.
Community service is one of our Big Eight Philosophies here at Central Penn, so our students learn community involvement. Working on campus is also huge because I have worked in the marketing department, admissions, and now the President’s office. It is a great opportunity to learn really what all goes into getting our prospective students to say “yes.” All of my experiences have already helped me so much with realizing what the real world will really be like.
You may be thinking, “How could she know just by working within the school and going to classes there?” Well, our classroom set up is amazing! We have a student to faculty ratio of 12:1, and the one-on-one time with professors is a great opportunity to learn even more. We do dress professionally on presentation days and if there is a career expo of some sort, which makes me realize that this is real. In just a year, I will be in my internship and graduating – really deciding what I want to do for the rest of my life.
The professors make it easy to speak with them, especially regarding resume-building opportunities. The hands-on learning experiences we get in the classroom are well put together and something I have never experienced before. With the Allied Health majors, of course it is easy to be hands-on, but within the business department it is on another level. Whether it may be looking at previous business plans, creating our own business plan, or even doing research on certain companies, it gets everyone excited to learn something new and realize what our niche is. Central Penn has opened so many doors for me, and I will be forever thankful. I have met so many great people, and made great connections that will last a lifetime.
