Accepted Student Day, designed to celebrate all students accepted to Penn College for the Fall 2019 semester, was held this past weekend. No matter where they are in the enrollment process, Sunday’s event was to help incoming students solidify their decision to attend Penn College. The day began with lunch, during which attendees could interact with relevant office representatives, alumni, current students and other accepted students. In addition to networking opportunities, select activities were available to help them navigate their next steps. Initially, the Admissions Office planned to host the event under a tent on the intramural field, but moved it into the Field House. (Yard games were then moved to the tent to provide a dry place to play.) During lunch, several campus offices and groups from across campus mingled with families, including Academic Affairs, Admissions, alumni volunteers, College Transitions and First Year Initiatives, Financial Aid, Residence Life, Student Activities and various student leaders. The day also included a welcome by Ashley R. Murphy, associate dean for admissions and financial aid; a drawing for a $50 gift card from The College Store; a “Student’s Choice” menu of optional activities; and a new campus tour centered around such traditions as therapy dogs in Madigan Library and Midnight Breakfast in the Keystone Dining Room.
