  • Keuka College leads the way in effecting positive change and acceptance in the surrounding communities as our students both with and without disabilities, go out into the world of work together. Each DRIVE student is expected to sit in on at least one college-level class per semester, they will not receive academic credit, but credit with the DRIVE program. They have college ID cards, email addresses, and guest privileges on the campus including the use of the WEED recreation complex, and the Geiser Dining facilities. With the help of our team of special Educators, and our Drive Peer Mentors, students integrate into the college community while working towards their personal life goals. The entire campus community is afforded a greater understanding of developmental disabilities through the DRIVE program .
  • Key Concept: Most employers will spend 35 seconds scanning a resume to determine whether to schedule an interview or to discard a resume. These general guidelines will help employers locate information quickly and easily on the resume. Rationale: Writers should try to keep their resume to one page, but should not fill that page completely with information. Using a 10 to 12 point font, adequate spacing, and large margins will ensure that employers can read the resume. Click mouse to reveal each item in the list.
