Peace Corps here--TOMORROW

Here’s your chance to get the latest updates on the Peace Corps, on all available Peace Corps assignments around the globe, and on how to become a more competitive applicant. Peace Corps service is the opportunity of a lifetime and a great way to get two years of international experience under your belt upon graduation. There are also opportunities to pursue a graduate degree during or after Peace Corps service. Erin Carlson, UPS 2004, Peace Corps recruiter and returned Peace Corps Volunteer, will be hosting these events. Anyone who is interested in learning more about the Peace Corps – voted by college graduates around the nation as one of the top five most desirable organizations to work for in 2007 * – is welcome to attend and ask questions. Please feel free to bring friends and family.
