A Three-Event Sampling of ‘PC3’

The first three weeks of the fall semester – replete with activities under the umbrella of “PC3” – provide students with a balanced menu of making friends, having fun, involving themselves in campus life and relieving the stress of late-summer studying. Come along as the college’s student photographers train their talented eye on just a few of the offerings: the Wildcat Paint Party, Wildcat Wars and Sex Ed Boot Camp.
