Summer PLUS 2008 Concludes With 30 Students Completing Program


Summer PLUS students celebrate graduation from five-week program On Thursday, 30 incoming Penn College students completed the five-week Summer PLUS 2008 program offered by Academic Support Services. In addition to taking a math, English or reading noncredit course, the students were involved in college-preparation activities such as Project Success, introduction-to-computers classes and library workshops. The program also offered a field trip to Downtown Williamsport, including a visit to the Community Arts Center, an introduction to Michael Pilato’s mural and a stop at Otto’s bookstore for a talk about College Town. During the final week of the program, students were given the opportunity to retake the placement test in the area they studied over the summer. With 25 students (83 percent) placing into a higher course, results were indicative of their hard work and the success of the program. Summer PLUS 2008 concluded Friday with the students receiving new schedules for the fall semester. ( Photo and information provided by Henriette K. Evans, Act 101 academic and career specialist)
