About the Program

Spark an interest. Share your experience. Take a Knight to work and make a difference in the life of a student!

March 16-18, 2021

Take a Knight to Work is a program through which alumni host students “on the job” to provide them with a glimpse into their aspirational profession. Hosted from March 16 to 18, 2021, alumni will have the opportunity to Take a Knight to Work for a full day, half-day, lunch, or coffee. This opportunity offers alumni and students the chance to get to know one another, for the alumnus to share career insight and advice, and for the student to utilize Arcadia University’s vast professional network.

Alumni and students across the globe can participate! Alumni volunteers and students will be matched by the Office of Alumni Engagement based on industry, interest, and schedule.
