Widener University’s School of Business Administration will host a free academic workshop for high school girls. The daylong workshop is designed to simulate life as a business student and give participants an idea of career opportunities in the field. Interested participants may choose to attend the workshop on either Thursday, February 21 or Friday, February, 22. The workshop will begin with registration at 8:30 a.m. and end with lunch and an optional campus tour at 1 p.m. on both days. Most activities will take place in Widener’s Lathem Hall, East 13th and Potter streets, Chester, Pa.
Workshop participants will have opportunities to interact with School of Business Administration faculty, students and successful alumnae. They’ll participate in collegiate-style lectures that address different concentrations within the field and take part in interactive activities focused on networking, overcoming adversity in the workplace and honing leadership skills.
An optional parent program will run simultaneously to address topics of admissions, curriculum and financial aid.
Interested participants – parents and high school students – should contact Jessica Hoopes, assistant dean for relationship development, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-499-4304 to register.
