South Hills Community News Release
Nineteen years ago, South Hills School of Business & Technology and Penn State University formed a partnership in order to provide South Hills students with the opportunity to explore internship opportunities at PSU.
Year after year, the Career Services Department at South Hills works diligently to prepare for internship season knowing that each Specialized Associate Degree program at South Hills requires students to complete an internship prior to graduation. Hundreds of South Hills students have completed internships and/or have been hired as employees at Penn State since the establishment of the South Hills/PSU partnership.
In February 2019, South Hills students from all campus locations (State College, Lewistown, Altoona) participated in PSU Days - Part I. All second-year South Hills students traveled to Penn State University Park for a guided bus tour of the campus followed by presentations on how to apply for internships and jobs at Penn State and remarks from South Hills alumni who are currently employed there.
PSU Days - Part II took place a few months later in April. For this event, employees from PSU came to the State College Main Campus of South Hills to meet with all second-year students and give them detailed information about available internship opportunities. This event is a unique experience for South Hills students that gives them a chance to speak directly with potential employers from the different departments at Penn State.
