On Wednesday, September 14, the Office of Career Planning and the Student Involvement Center hosted nearly 50 local community organizations and campus clubs under the tent adjacent to the Campus Center. The event was organized in an effort to recruit members and volunteers as well as increase student, faculty and staff awareness of the missions and services provided by each group. The gathering also served as a jumping-off point for faculty looking to incorporate service-based learning projects into their curriculum.

Among those in attendance were representatives from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County, the Buffalo Museum of Science, Buffalo Olmsted Parks, Crisis Services and Junior Achievement of WNY. A variety of campus-based student groups were on-site as well. A complete list of attendees and contact information is available through the Office of Career Planning.

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
