  • Alumni Site Visits

    Alumni Site Visits

    Between the networking receptions, the #YCPRoadCrew makes several pit stops to visit our alumni at their places of work. These site visits are designed to allow our students to see the York College education in action.

    Alumni who host site visits accomplish four things when hosting the #YCPRoadCrew:

    1. Discuss an overview of their company and the day-to-day responsibilities of their position (which may include a tour of the company)
    2. Share their York College experience and how it contributed to their success in the real world
    3. Give advice to our students on topics like preparing for graduation, finding the right internship or job, and networking successfully
    4. Embody and portray the Spartan for Life motto

    Site visits also allow us to discover new internship, mentorship, and job placement opportunities for students and the Career Development Center.

    This year, the #YCPRoadCrew will be visiting the following companies:

    • SEI Investments (Malvern)
    • Citizens Bank Park (Philadelphia)
    • Philadelphia Sign Company (Philadelphia)
    • TODAY Show (New York City)
    • Nickelodeon (New York City)
    • Lunch with David Althoff, Principal Counsel at Marvel Entertainment, LLC. (New York City)
    • Rachel Ray Studio Tour (New York City)
    • Bronx Zoo (New York City)
