Students welcomed with upbeat reminder: ‘This is YOUR time!’

Renewing an autumnal rite of passage, Penn College greeted first-year and returning students for the start of the Fall 2022 semester during Welcome Weekend: a three-day (re)introduction to campus life that brings down the curtain on blissful summer and offers up a clean slate of possibility. President Michael J. Reed – marking his own first year – was among a collegewide throng of well-wishers and helping hands as students moved into housing, took part in enlightening and entertaining activities, and forged connections with new friends and college resources. “You’ve all come here with a goal of success,” Reed told students Sunday night, food for thought as the first day of classes drew nigh. “This is your time, and it’s time to get started!”
