Welcome Weekend 2010


Pennsylvania College of Technology officially opened its arms to first-year and transfer students during Welcome Weekend on Aug. 14-15. On Saturday, students moved into on- and off-campus housing and made final preparations for Monday’s start of classes. Student-related offices and The College Store remained open later to accommodate last-minute needs, and employees and current students proved a knowledgeable resource for newcomers with questions. Both days also included social events and information sessions, and the weekend culminated in a hypnotist’s show in the Field House. A fireworks display, postponed by rain, was moved to 8:30 p.m. Aug. 19.
