Larson Design Group recently opened its doors to Penn College students for a day of learning about architecture. The students are enrolled in Introduction to Architecture (ACH 101) – taught by Rob A. Wozniak, associate professor, and Geoffrey M. Campbell, assistant professor – that provides an overview of the field through tours of architectural and construction-related businesses. Course topics include career paths, educational opportunities, registration requirements, and architects’ responsibilities. “We’ve hosted classes from Penn College many times over the past few years,” Kara Demmien, project designer in LDG’s Retail Design Group and a leader of the firm’s Williamsport office, said in a blog post. “It feels great to contribute to the learning of future architects. Plus, we hire many Penn College graduates, and we’ve found that they make wonderful employees.”
