07/28/11 Needs Assessment and Visiting Penn

In the morning each team focused on doing what it needed to finish their reports on schedule. Some teams went out to their neighborhoods to conducts surveys, some teams imputed data, and others retooled their surveys to elicit clearer and more incisive data. A free pizza lunch was provided to all the employees by McGraw-Hill as a thank you for their hard work and continuing efforts piloting the careercruising.com program. In the afternoon all the teams walked over to Penn for a private information session geared toward the employees and their specific questions. Some of the assistant team leaders, who also happen to be Penn students, sat on a panel and answered these questions. Someone from admissions also spoke to them about the college admission process in general and specifically how applying to Penn works. Then the employees were given a tour of Penn. Highlights included The Perelman Quadrangle, Van Pelt and Fisher Fine Arts Libraries, Franklin Field, the Quad, and Huntsman Hall.
