On the links or in the lab, focus is key

Get a glimpse of the student-athlete experience at Penn College through the eyes of Gavin L. Baer, of Bainbridge, a member of the golf team who is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in manufacturing engineering technology. “Golf is all mental because if your head’s not in it, you’re not going to play well,” Baer says. “The same thing applies to the lab. If your head’s not in it and you’re not focusing on it, you make a wrong move on the machine and it can cause damage.” In this video, added to the college’s YouTube channel, you’ll learn why the Lancaster Countian chose Penn College and how he’s proud to call himself a Wildcat.

Reed, who met Ryoo several weeks ago and bolstered that connection during Tuesday’s visit. “There is much to discuss about our common goals – and ways in which to achieve them – and we welcome the ongoing collaboration.”
