Hundreds of college students and recent graduates who either study or live in the Philadelphia area attended the third annual Campus Philly Opportunity Fair, an effort by the Philadelphia-based nonprofit to retain recent college graduates in the city, either through jobs or through graduate school.

The fair, held this year at Temple University, attracted 700 to 800 students, about the same as last year.

The number of employers rose slightly. New this year was a civics fair designed to connect recent graduates with volunteer opportunities.

"We think that's a real strong anchor" to help keep graduates in Philadelphia, Campus Philly president Deborah Diamond said. "It gives them a community."    - Jane M. Von Bergen
