For the 10th consecutive year, The Foundation for Free Enterprise Education held Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week at Penn College. From July 30 through Saturday, 400 young women and men stayed in student housing, ate meals in the Keystone Dining Room and spent most of their time in presentations and activities in the Klump Academic Center. In addition to brainstorming their way to forming companies and getting a hands-on taste of entrepreneurship, the students heard from inspiring mentors, participated in a scavenger hunt-style quiz game that took them into several college buildings and labs, enjoyed a residential peek at campus life and (of course) formed fast friendships.
