The deep-blue hue works its way through the fountain's pool, a change that will remain until after the college's Oct. 27 Open House.

Nine members of Penn College’s Student Government Association and Wildcat Events Board introduced dye into The Veterans’ Fountain at first light Monday morning, encouraged by the Office of Student Engagement and General Services in the traditional prelude to Homecoming and Parent & Family Weekend. The annual observance is a time to connect alumni, students, families and friends through many great events across a beautiful college campus. Among the activities showcasing Wildcat Pride are the ninth annual Alumni Golf Outing, the Alumni & Friends Tent Party, a bonfire outside Madigan Library, breakfast with President Davie Jane Gilmour, and open academic labs. Men’s and women’s soccer games on the new UPMC Field, featuring a number of local food trucks, and an Athletic Hall of Fame Dinner will also take place. (Photo gallery)
