Penn State students: Do you want to do something above and beyond your comfort zone and join the call of service? Help others around the world learn new skills and ideas and discover part of yourself you never knew?  Learn more about the Peace Corps at an information session at 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 1 at the Career Center Services.

“One of the most remarkable things about Peace Corps living is confronting the fluid nature of knowledge. Volunteers must daily confront what they once accepted as fact, reevaluating both their initial impressions of their new home and their former perceptions of American culture. What is real and what is not? What is true and what is a socially endorsed notion?  It is a beautiful and sometimes frightening journey. There are no outposts, no lamps in the dark. But if you choose to venture out, the rewards are rich: a fuller understanding of yourself, your country, and your world.”
-Jordan Earl, PC Volunteer, Uzbekistan 2002-2004

March 1 marks the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps.
