Adventurous members of the Penn College community, including faculty and students on break from an open-lab period, launched themselves from 20 feet above Rose Street Commons onto an oversized air bag Saturday. The Sky Fall attraction drew a steady line of amateur stuntmen and women,  who gained access to the upper platform via a wristband earned after conquering the 11-foot threshold. The Student Activities Office organized the activity, the Interfraternity Council provided refreshments, a disc jockey (whose selections appropriately included Van Halen’s “Jump”) entertained the crowd and good weather completed the festival atmosphere.
