York campus celebrates Penn State Day, Homecoming

October 18, 2012

Prospective students and their families along with members of the York community, and students, faculty and staff from Penn State York celebrated Penn State Day and Homecoming on Oct. 13. Visitors to the campus learned about the educational opportunities available at Penn State York and took part in a variety of other activities to highlight the campus.

Lion Life, the Penn State Hershey Medical Center’s medical helicopter landed on campus and visitors had the opportunity to tour it and talk with members of the life-saving medical unit. In addition, a variety of children’s activities, including pumpkin-painting, story time and inflatable games, kept young visitors busy.

Penn State York’s soccer team took on Penn State Schuylkill and won their games, several reunions took place and some students, faculty, staff and alumni took part in the third annual National Alliance on Mental Illness Walk. York’s baseball also played a scrimmage with current players taking on some alumni. Homecoming Saturday ended with “A Night of Laughs with Anton Shuford,” a nationally known comedian with members of the Penn State York Penn Players opening for him.
