KU Students Visit ADP in Allentown

KU Students Visit ADP in Allentown

Thursday, Nov. 10, Kutztown students, faculty and staff, received a tour, panel presentation and were able to engage in a networking lunch at ADP’s new state-of-the-art campus in downtown Allentown. ADP, one of the world’s largest human capital management providers, occupies the top 10 floors of the Five City Center office tower, where 1,000 employees (many KU alum) work. Students got to hear from ADP associates about working in a city center location and how they built a workspace for collaboration and innovation. In addition, students learned about the recruitment process and potential internship, volunteer and full-time opportunities. Five City Center offers 360-degree views from floors four through 13 and features a 24 foot high living wall in the lobby.
