Diversionary tactics maintain balance at stressful time

April showers bring May flowers AND the traditional sprint to the spring semester’s finish line. Aside from final exams, capstones and other yearend projects, the Penn College campus is annually abuzz with pastimes to occupy students’ remaining waking hours (as well as those of the PCToday photographers trying to keep up). Among recent events, encapsulated below: Student Wildcats of Robotic Design (SWORD)-sponsored Spring Robot Fights, Inflatable Fun on the campus lawn, a Harry Potter-themed block party (moved indoors due to a “spell” of rainy weather), a “Hot Dog, It’s Spring!” event at Rose Street Commons and a Silent Auction in Madigan Library that raised nearly $5,000 for a Student Government Association scholarship fund.
