Amazing opportunities—on campus and beyond
From internships and experiential learning opportunities to travel and conferences, you’ll have many opportunities to conduct real-world experiences, work with your peers and mentors in your chosen field, and learn first-hand the latest skills to succeed in the real world.
Students will acquire leadership and management skills, professional growth and personal fulfillment that can’t be gained in the classroom. All Accounting majors complete an internship of 6 credits.
Over 30 student-run clubs and organizations, including the FBLA organization, Phi Beta Lambda, and the Hospitality Business Management Club, are available and are a wonderful way to meet people, travel, learn about different subjects, and gain valuable leadership opportunities.
When you become a Giant, you will enjoy campus life in a passionate, close-knit community…a family. Keystone College comes together in many different ways with 18 Division III sports, a variety of student events, 276 acres to explore, and various ways to learn both inside and outside of the classroom.
“When it came time to look for colleges, I had a lot of options. I didn’t think I would come to Keystone because it was closest to home. However, I couldn’t be more grateful. Truly my entire life is what it is because I went to Keystone.”
