College-Prep Blogger Eyes Career Path for Today's 'Graduate'

Wendy David-GainesA blogger who toured Penn College last week has written her first article from that visit, taking a cue from the signature "Plastics" line in the 1967 film, "The Graduate." "Technology schools offer liberal arts courses along with majors in industrial, computing & engineering technologies, construction & design technologies, and transportation & natural resources technologies," wrote Wendy David-Gaines, in a piece titled "What's the Right College for Me, Mrs. Robinson?" "While careers in plastics, polymers and welding may be some students’ objectives, other majors can educate future nurses, dental hygienists, physician assistants, occupational therapists, paralegals and web developers. Budding entrepreneurs in the hospitality and culinary arts fields, sustainability design and early childhood education also get their own hands-on experience while taking business classes."
