Campus celebrates first week of classes

August 25, 2009

Penn State York students, faculty, and staff enjoyed a welcome back picnic and a club rush on Monday, Aug. 24, sponsored by the Student Affairs office. Dinner and a club fair took place from 4 to 6 p.m. to provide students the chance to meet other students, faculty, and staff and have some fun. Students could also visit club tables and learn more about the variety of clubs and organizations at the campus from the Hispanic Student Association and the Biology Club to the Penn State Dance Marathon (THON). Welcome Week activities continue throughout the first week of classes and include musical performances, comedy, karaoke, and free ice cream. The events are designed to give students the opportunity to get to know other students and become more familiar with the campus.
