Penn College hosted 183 students and 126 guests during Saturday’s Connections orientation program, welcoming new enrollees and their families prior to Monday’s start of the Spring 2013 semester. Connections is designed to help new students (including transfers and nontraditional students) get ready for college, with practical information about key campus procedures, academic expectations and social opportunities, and a greater understanding of general campus life.
