Engaged Scholarship Expo Helps Students Explore Unconventional Learning Opportunities

Albert Einstein once said, “The only source of knowledge is experience.” While the traditional classroom learning environment is one way to obtain information you desire, many Penn State students find that learning through academic experiences, such as study abroad, research, and service learning, have enhanced their studies in ways that no book or lecture ever could.

In October 2012, Penn State founded its Council on Engaged Scholarship, a group of students, faculty, and staff that advance Penn State’s mission by “creating an environment that fosters engaged teaching, engaged research, and engaged service.” Engaged scholarship experiences include courses with integrated trips, as well as internships and senior capstone projects.

Engaged Scholarship opportunities are not only memorable, but can completely change the way you think and feel about your education. Next Monday, Nov. 17 from 5-7 p.m., the Council on Engaged Scholarship will hold an Expo for interested students. The event, held in Heritage Hall of the HUB, includes “high energy ‘lightning’ presentations from current students,” resources with information on how to get involved, and advice from students and staff. The speakers come from a multitude of majors and studies, including Education, Mechanical Engineering, Philosophy, Biobehavioral Health, Advertising and Public Relations, and Bioengineering.

There will also be food and free giveaways, which are always an added bonus.
