With Monday’s temperatures topping out above 80 degrees, what better time to hold a beach party? Penn College Dining Services obliged, throwing a seasonal bash at the Capitol Eatery. For the cost of a board meal, students could feast on a “Summer Fun Buffet” featuring seasoned chicken, a clambake, BBQ riblets, crab salad sandwiches, hot dogs, strawberry salad, watermelon and more. There were also cotton candy and snow cones, henna tattoos, an opportunity for students to make their own flip-flops and flying discs, and patio games.
