Meghan Costello from the Peace Corps is having a special Peace Corps Friends and Family Panel event on March 4 at 11 am in the Maas Conference Room to celebrate Peace Corps Week 2015. This panel is a unique opportunity to hear not only from Returned Peace Corps Volunteers but also the friends and family members who were affected by their service. Several Returned Peace Corps Volunteers will attend with a friend or family member, and one currently serving volunteer is going to be Skyping in from the field. I would highly encourage you to let students know of this rare opportunity to connect with Returned Peace Corps volunteers and family in this once in a lifetime session. Sponsored by Office of Multicultural Education, The Career Development Center, and the College of Arts and Humanities.
