Homecoming/Parent & Family Weekend 2021

Campus friendships again blossomed at the sunbathed scene of their planting, and parents and siblings – some separated from their loved ones since Welcome Weekend (“only” a month ago) – replenished their stockpile of hugs during Penn College’s Homecoming and Parent & Family Weekend (Sept. 24-26). Among the many activities intended to rekindle connections among alumni, students, kith and kin were an Athletics Hall of Fame induction, historic tours of campus and Greater Williamsport; a popular Alumni Golf Outing, a bonfire and live music on the Madigan Library lawn, the Alumni & Friends Tent Party, a wrestling retrospective, breakfast with President Davie Jane Gilmour, a craft brewery get-together, open academic labs, a celebration of plastics, family activities, men’s and women’s soccer matches on UPMC Field, food trucks and games. Oh, never mind, come see for yourselves!
