1968 Montage – Weighing In on a First-Year Fear


The 'Freshman 15": before and after
The ‘Freshman 15″: before and after

You’re warned about it before college and regret not taking heed after it strikes. It’s the dreadful “Freshman 15!” A  student depicted in the 1968 Montage yearbook was bold enough to  share before-and-after photos of his college weight gain. Luckily, services are offered to today’s students to help avoid the unwanted: Fitness Center memberships, healthy meal selections, participation in intercollegiate and intramural sports … even zumba classes. Don’t fall victim to the “Freshman 15”;  use the services Penn College offers. Be proactive and get fit!
