“The 14th Annual Happy Hours, Mardi Gras-Style!” held Tuesday in Penn’s Inn got students in the mood for a stress-free (and problem-free) Spring Break. In addition to comprehensive information about travel smarts and safe behavior, there were free “Fat Tuesday”-inspired food and refreshments, music, prizes – and the traditional nonalcoholic “mix-off” competition. Student-concocted “mocktails” were judged and sampled at the event, which was hosted by counselor Michael S. DiPalma. The evening was co-sponsored by Counseling Services, the Student Activities Office, College Health Services, Dining Services and the School of Business & Hospitality.
