“I’ve come to all but one of these events in the past and have met and spoken at length with many bright, potentially very employable students,” Phil Wood (’72), sports commentator for the Washington Nationals, said.

            From 8 a.m.-11 a.m., employers and successful APSU alumni will meet with students in one-on-one, small group and roundtable discussions. From 1 p.m.-4 p.m., an internship fair, sponsored by Enterprise Holdings, will allow employers to meet with APSU students and alumni who are looking for internships in various fields.
