Penn’s Inn served as an accommodating venue for Tuesday’s Grad Finale, catering to students destined for the three commencement ceremonies to be held May 17-18. Students were encouraged to stop by the second floor of the Bush Campus Center from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to pick up graduation tickets, purchase caps and gowns, pose for fun photos, and snag some last-minute pointers on everything from veterans’ benefits to continued involvement with their alma mater. Additionally, Jostens and Snap-on were on hand to share information about class rings and tools.
