Thank you, Alumni Volunteers!

Alumni Volunteers

In celebration of National Volunteer Week, we want to send a huge THANK YOU to our awesome alumni volunteers! Several returned to campus last month to volunteer during Penn College Open House. More than 800 prospective students attended, and nearly 400 completed an application before leaving campus. Your assistance enhances the Pennsylvania College of Technology experience; the College is a better place because of you!

Nominate an Inspiring Professor

Was there a Penn College professor who inspired you or made a difference in your life? Nominate him or her to be the next featured speaker in the College’s David London My Last Words program, a lecture series that challenges student- and alumni-nominated faculty members to offer their definitive thoughts as if they knew it were the final opportunity to share insight, inspiration, and life lessons.

E-mail your nomination to Sara Ousby by Wednesday, April 23. The selected faculty member will be notified at the end of the spring semester.

The My Last Words lecture will take place Thursday, October 9, at 7 p.m., in the Klump Academic Center Auditorium. All alumni are invited to attend this free event.

Got Game?

Got Game

Student-athletes who have graduated from Penn College have left campus with more than the proficiencies learned in their respective majors. They’ve packed extra aptitudes obtained on the field, court, course, and mat into their skill set and parlayed those talents into their careers, as well. Read about Lindsey Fackler, ’10, Matt Haile, ’06, and Adam Waigand, ’05, in the latest One College Avenue feature.

Karen Miller, ’13, Dental HygieneKaren Miller, ’13, Dental Hygiene, is pursuing a B.A. in intercultural studies, focusing on international development, at North Central University in Minneapolis, MN. She also works part-time at Community Dental Care Clinic, educating clients on correct dental care. Her co-workers are bilingual or multilingual, and most of her clients are minorities who often do not speak English, having recently arrived to the area as refugees.

Penn College’s Dental Hygiene program taught Karen to focus on the intrinsic value of education and how to approach clients and connect culturally; this is the foundation of her current work. She sees the impact of building positive relationships with her clients as it often leads to improving their dental or health condition.

Karen has plans to apply her education and work experience internationally as a health care professional, serving underserved populations on dental and general health care. Karen has spent the last two summers in China working for a non-profit and is in the process of applying to work with a non-governmental organization in Asia. She volunteers for Hospitality Center for Chinese, an organization that extends a variety of services to Chinese families, students, and scholars recently arriving to the Twin Cities area.

In her free time, you’ll find Karen learning as much as she can about different cultures. She enjoys spending time with, and learning from, the foreign friends she has met since arriving to Minneapolis. She samples a variety of ethnic foods and devotes time to studying foreign languages, such as Mandarin Chinese, and Korean and Chinese minority languages.
