‘Welcome Weekend’ Helps Students Get (Re)Acquainted With Penn College

First-year students and returnees alike said “Goodbye” to summer and “Hello” to the Fall 2012 semester during Penn College’s Welcome Weekend festivities. After check-in and move-in for newcomers Saturday, the evening included a presidential welcome, fireworks display and another visit from a traditionally popular hypnotist. Activities continued Sunday with CampusFest on the Athletic Field and a comedy show in the Rose Street Courtyard, and free donuts and other refreshments marked Monday’s first day of  instruction – courtesy of Dining Services and Student Affairs, who took photos on students’ cellphones for parental confirmation that sons and daughters started the week on the right foot.
