ABERDEEN, S.D. – The Northern State University Involvement Fair will take place 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 1, on the Campus Green.
The event, open to the campus community, invites all NSU recognized student organizations, Aberdeen area employers, organizations and nonprofits to join to promote their services and opportunities to NSU students.
New Career Services Coordinator
Helping to organize this year’s Involvement Fair is Maggie Pence, Northern’s new career services coordinator. Pence is an Aberdeen native and graduate of Central High School, though she spent three years living in South Korea, teaching English and studying Korean culture.
Now, Pence is happy to be back in Aberdeen – and at Northern.
“After spending most of my professional life away from home, I am excited to return to the Aberdeen area and join the NSU campus community,” Pence said. “Having the opportunity to serve NSU students and work with local businesses is truly an honor. I look forward to sharing my experiences with the goal of helping NSU students navigate their own career journey.”
