Year-End Traditions Make It Clear: Finals Week Will Soon Be Here!

Thursday’s “Up All Night” events across campus marked the imminent end of another semester at Penn College. A total of 658 hungry scholars were served at the popular Midnight Breakfast in the Keystone Dining Room; and Madigan Library tempered the butterflies with extended hours and a visit between 70-some students and eight very affectionate instructional aides.
