A boring week at Penn College? There’s no such animal!


The semester-opening “PC3” continued its fall bounty of events in Week Two, tempting students with a cornucopia of options. In this pictorial roundup, PCToday invites you to experience Tuesday’s Fall Fusion/Part-Time Job Fair, the following evening’s Penn College Night at BB&T Ballpark with the Williamsport Crosscutters, and – a heartbleat away from the Labor Day Weekend – a Thursday mashup that speaks for itself: Goat Yoga.
