When Luke Marsiglia enters Penn State York’s Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center, not only is he excited about the great new $13.5 million renovation and addition to the facility, he knows exactly what went into it because he was a part of the project. Marsiglia, a York student majoring in electro-mechanical engineering technology (EMET), has been working with Alexander Building Construction Co., as an intern through The Graham Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership Studies (The Graham Center) program at the campus.
During the course of his internship, Luke Marsiglia, a Penn State York EMET student, left, worked with different crew members of Alexander Building Construction Co., and had the opportunity to interact, ask questions, and be a part of the building project as it unfolded. Marsiglia, and Steve Adams, job site superintendent, Alexander, went over some of the plans for the student center, as the building neared completion.

The ceremony will take place in the new plaza area behind the John J. Romano Administration Building and The Ruhl Center, and is open to students, faculty, staff and invited guests.
