Homecoming & Family Weekend Showered With Sweet Memories

Mother Nature was among the parents in town for Penn College’s first Homecoming & Family Weekend, bringing persistent rain but failing to deter attendees from enjoying a full schedule of activities centered around “Our Proud Penn College Days.” The turbulent weather prompted relocation of a number of those events, but the celebration – the first-ever melding of two formerly separate observances – went off with nary a hitch. Among the weekend offerings were a four-day carnival; dessert receptions in each of the college’s six academic schools; soccer matches; the Athletic Hall of Fame induction and banquet; an alumni golf outing; guided tours of campus and historic Williamsport; a tailgating lunch with President Davie Jane Gilmour; and an Oktoberfest that included a reunion of past student ambassadors, Student Government Association members and orientation leaders.
