Thousands of Goodies Fill Campus Lawn for Return of ‘Wildcat Egg Hunt’

Penn College’s second annual Wildcat Egg Hunt delivered a beautiful pre-spring day for the youngest members of the campus family – and six times the treats as last year’s inaugural outing. Members of the sponsoring Omega Delta Sigma veterans fraternity, joined by Greek Life colleagues from Sigma Pi and Phi Mu Delta, spent 10 hours over three nights stuffing the 3,000 eggs that were ultimately “hidden” for Saturday’s scavenging adventure. Organized for 12-and-under children of students, faculty and staff, the event drew about 120 youngsters. The fraternities also purchased the Easter candy for the hunt; snacks were donated by the School of Business & Hospitality and the Financial Aid Office.
