Homecoming and Parent & Family Weekend – 2017

Penn College’s second annual Homecoming and Parent & Family Weekend had a little something for everyone – and a whole lotta something for those getting reacquainted with their favorite students and/or former classmates! A packed weekend schedule of celebratory activities included a bonfire and paint party, the Athletics Hall of Fame banquet, outlets for artistic expression, informative visits from graduates, guided tours, soccer matches, an alumni golf tournament, a picnic brunch with President Davie Jane Gilmour, musical entertainment, and an Oktoberfest that included a reunion of past Resident Assistants.
