YOUNGSTOWN STATE UNIVERSITY – The College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and the Williamson College of Business Administration (WCBA) will host the second annual Ohio Internship and Co-op Appreciation Day on Friday, April 15, before Youngstown State’s “Red and White” Spring football game. All students, faculty, staff and employers who are involved with the colleges’ internship and/or co-operative education programs are invited to attend the celebration.
In 2015, Gov. John Kasich signed into law a bill designating an annual Ohio Internship and Co-Op Appreciation Day, and this event marks the second year in a row YSU’s STEM and WCBA will host an appreciation event.
“The idea is to celebrate and raise awareness of the value of internship and co-op opportunities in our state and to promote the creation of more internship and co-op programs at businesses throughout the state,” said State Sen. Bill Beagle, chair of the Senate Workforce and Economic Development Committee.
The YSU event is slated to begin at 5:15 p.m. at Stambaugh Stadium on campus with food, beverages, games and laid-back networking. The event will end at 7:30 p.m., when the “Red and White” Spring football game is scheduled to kickoff. The event is by invitation only, but those companies interested in getting involved with the College of STEM or WCBA’s internship programs are welcome to contact Sherri Hrusovski (email@example.com) or Christina Costello (firstname.lastname@example.org) to participate.
