The Working World

Happy Holidays from the Corporate Work Study Program!

We just finished up our first quarter visits to all of our partners to check up on our students. It is wonderful to see the great work students and coeducators are doing in offices all over the city and Bay Area. We are grateful for our partners and the opportunities they offer our students each day. As lab techs at FivePrime Therapeutics, assisting in the ticketing offices with The San Francisco Giants, working in the Human Resources department at Brown and Toland Medical Group and in many more companies our students are working to accomplish their dream of going to college. It takes a team to accomplish the biggest goals and it is great to see our team working hard. Finally we salute Five Prime Therapeutics and their student team for winning Team of the Month for November!

Best wishes to all during the holidays and for a happy New Year and we look forward to our continued progress in 2014!
