This post brings two opportunities related to education beyond the classroom.

FIRST:    The 2015 Engaged Scholarship Expo

The Council on Engaged Scholarship (CoES) cordially invites you to the Engaged Scholarship Expo on Wednesday, November 18, 2015 from 5PM to 7PM in Heritage Hall in the Hetzel Union Building.

At the Expo, you will be inspired and informed as you find out more about engaged scholarship opportunities. Fellow Penn State students will give 4-minute Lightning Presentations about their experiences, the resources they sought and how the experience has impacted their college experience. Students will also give poster presentations and Engaged Scholarship Student Ambassadors will be on-hand every step of the way to give peer-to-peer advice to student attendees in the Noontime Lounge. Students, staff, faculty, and parents are all welcome to attend.

Please RSVP for the 2015 Expo by Friday November 13, 2015 at 5PM.
