Centro to Promote Opportunities
For Students at Fall Open House
Centro is looking forward to stimulating student interest by promoting its rich resources and opportunities right here at Hunter College. Evelyn Collazo, events coordinator at Centro, has recruited a team of young Centro staffers to chat with students at Centro’s Fall Open House on how they can benefit from the institute in numerous ways, including internships, work-study and jobs in areas such as video editing and production, publication and research.
The open house is set for Wednesday, September 19, from 1 to 3 pm in the Alumni Hall of Fame area, located just inside and to the right of Hunter College’s West Building turnstiles.
Collazo said students will be greeted by a diverse team of Centro staffers, including recent college graduates and current students from different colleges, who will chat with students about what the staffers do at Centro and describe how it fits into their field. The Centro staffers represent many disciplines, including library, media, writing, education, and research.
