NORWICH – As part of an effort to increase enrollment at the Morrisville State College Norwich campus, students at the Roger W. Follett Hall have organized the first Career Awareness Day and Open House to showcase the college and advertise employment opportunities for its students upon graduation.
Career Awareness Day, from 1 to 4 p.m. March 28, is a free event, open to the public, that is coordinated and carried out through voluntary efforts of students and the good-will donations made by local non-profit organizations. Employers in both the private and non-profit sectors will be joining student representatives during the event to feature the associate and bachelor degrees awarded by the college and the careers available after earning any particular degree.
Prior to the open house, students will also host an invite-only luncheon to give thanks to area business leaders that have allowed student internships over the years. Volunteer students will be using kitchen space provided at the Norwich Jewish Center to prepare food, which was donated by Charlie McMullen, who oversees the soup kitchen in Oxford.
