Campers Get Their Bearings in Campuswide Hunt for Answers

On Wednesday morning, Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week students participated in a quiz that took them into several buildings and labs on a circuitous path across main campus. The activity allowed campers to explore various locations, as well as interact with admissions representatives and academic school representatives, to learn more about the opportunities available at Penn College. About 400 young entrepreneurs are staying on campus through Saturday, eating meals in the Keystone Dining Room and attending sessions in the Klump Academic Center. This is the ninth year that the Foundation for Free Enterprise Education has held PFEW at Penn College.
