Opportunities for Student Involvement, Inside and Out

A record-breaking number of students – 507, by official count – registered for Tuesday’s conveniently combined Part-Time Job Fair and Fall Fusion. A variety of employers were stationed in the Field House, a busy venue made even more popular by its air conditioning, while outside, where a steamy Sept. 1 followed August’s lead, representatives of campus and community organizations engaged students looking to make a difference beyond the classroom.
