Wildcat Club recognized for crucial assist to student-athletes

The nook on the east side of Bardo Gym serves as an ideal locale for the pregame “tailgate.”

A Wednesday night reception in Bardo Gymnasium recognized the Wildcat Club for its commitment to Penn College Athletics and the vital role it plays in keeping students in the game − athletically AND academically. At a men’s/women’s basketball doubleheader against Penn State Berks, honored guests met and mingled with student-athletes, were greeted by the college mascot and President Davie Jane Gilmour, networked with other club members, enjoyed tailgate-style appetizers, and cheered during the hardwood action.

The Madigan Library (left) and Bush Campus Center will be hubs of activity during Penn College’s Spring 2019 Open House, an April 6 event highlighting the college’s unique educational mission and hands-on approach to learning.

Students looking for a bold next step in their educational journey are encouraged to attend an Oct. 28 Open House at Pennsylvania College of Technology, where “future made by hand” is a template for success.

Biggs, assistant director of admissions. “From the state-of-the-art labs to the knowledgeable faculty and staff, Penn College is the place to be if you want to be a tomorrow maker.”

The college will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for prospective students and their families to explore more than 100 bachelor’s, associate and certificate programs. Free bus service will be available on the main campus in Williamsport, and shuttles will transport guests to and from the nearby Lumley Aviation and Schneebeli Earth Science centers throughout the day.
