College connects employers with students for citizenship and leadership projects

GREENVILLE, Pa.—Thiel College, a leading liberal arts college in northwest Pennsylvania, will bring local community members and business owners to campus for a Community Impact Fair from 2-4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8 in the Lutheran Heritage Room of the Howard Miller Student Center.

Students of the College will have the opportunity to network with the organizations and discuss opportunities to fulfill citizenship and leadership project requirements.

“My biggest goal since serving in Career Development has been to facilitate more collaboration between the community and the College,” Assistant Director of the Career Development Center and Coordinator of the Disability Resource Center Clarissa S. Arbuckle ’11 said. “The Community Impact Fair meets the needs of our students while also serving our community. Our hope is that the fair also teaches students the importance of networking.”

The Career Development Center recommends first-year students complete their citizenship practicum requirement, which can include a minimum 15 hours of civic engagement during a semester. Students can use this experience to begin filling out a résumé or network to find an internship. The practicum was developed for students to develop verbal communication, teamwork, problem solving, planning and prioritizing skills. These skills align with competencies that the National Association of Colleges and Employers considers relevant for career readiness.
