This week’s fifth annual “Hot Dog, You’re Here!” event again gave Penn College students the opportunity to connect with faculty/staff dog owners who offered welcoming smiles, listening ears and therapeutic access to their very special friends. The well-received mixer is sponsored by Counseling Services and, while moved into the Field House under threat of rain, the spirit of goodwill was undampened.
