How was your Welcome Weekend? (masking for a friend)

Monday’s start of classes marked the academic onset of the Fall 2020 semester, but the new year officially began with Penn College’s Welcome Weekend and Friday/Saturday move-in days for new students. Although social distancing and restrictions on group gatherings didn’t allow for some of the traditional community-building activities, the vibe was as warm as the weather. And as mandatory (and properly worn) face coverings have been added to each day’s wardrobe, there was a heartening level of compliance with the college’s words to literally live by: “Hands-on, masks-on.”
