A number of campus offices threw a party Tuesday for students on track to graduate next month, handily helping them check off their commencement to-do list. The early-afternoon Grad Finale (which featured accommodating staff from Alumni Relations, Career Services, Financial Aid, Registrar, The College Store and Workforce Development & Continuing Education) was held in the Bush Campus Center. From 12:30-2:30 p.m., petitioned students could pick up their commencement tickets, purchase caps and gowns, and learn more about their Alumni Association benefits – all in one handy location. Penn College’s winter ceremony is at 11 a.m. Dec. 17 in the Community Arts Center.
