The spring semester of Asa Leininger’s senior year presented him with a conundrum – he wasn’t sure what he was going to do after he graduated.
“I really had no clue how I was going to apply what I had learned in my university studies within a professional setting,” Leininger said. “Likewise, I knew that I needed more stability than what professional summer-stock Shakespeare companies (theatre) had to offer.”
It was at that time that MSU’s Career Center hosted an information session with Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, sponsored by the College of Education and MSU’s Peace Corps Prep program. Leininger attended the session and was immediately “hooked.”
