On October 24 and 26, 2008, Smeal MBA students volunteered their time to assist public radio station WPSU with its fall fund drive. WPSU is a listener-supported NPR station serving central and northwestern Pennsylvania. Between answering calls from new and renewing members of the station’s listenership, students listened to public radio, snacked, and chatted.
“The afternoon at WPSU gave us the chance to mingle with fellow students in a non-academic setting while giving back to the community,” says Chris LoRusso, class of 2010.
“I look forward to volunteering again in the future.”
“I was impressed with the support from within the Smeal community,”
says Andrew Helicher, class of 2010.
A member of our Career Services team phoned in a generous donation during our shift! Smeal’s relationship with WPSU is ongoing, and there will be plenty of opportunities for current and future classes to participate in membership drives and other philanthropic initiatives at the station.
