Welcome Week a busy one for Penn State president

August 25, 2008

University Park, Pa. — Welcome Week is a busy time for students new to Penn State University Park, but even University President Graham B. Spanier was kept on his toes by all the activity around campus. Spanier, making every effort to get to know as many new students as possible during their first days on campus, participated in a variety of activities aimed at building lasting relationships with the freshman class.

With more than 7,300 students, this class of 2012 kept him busy in the last week, with such activities as dorm move-in, meals with residents, orientation events of Schreyer Honors College, magic tricks during LateNight Penn State in the HUB, and even two nights as a guest roommate in 118 Pinchot Hall.
