Gearing Up to Hunker Down


As students look ahead to the semester break and holiday reunions with family and friends, there is but one immovable consideration in their path: that formidable force that is Finals Week. Fear not, O stressed-out and weary. Penn College offers a range of accommodations designed to keep anxiety and pressure at bay. In addition to extended Madigan Library hours for hitting the books, as well as such helpful diversions as Quizzo and yoga, a pair of traditional events continues to put a great, big smile on the collective face of the student body. More than 750 people were served at Dining Services’ best-attended Midnight Breakfast in years, and some very friendly library visitors huggably worked their magic.
