Dr. A. Craig Hillemeier, dean of Penn State College of Medicine, chief executive officer of Penn State Health, and senior vice president for health affairs at Penn State, and Dr. Terry Wolpaw, vice dean for educational affairs, kicked off the event with a welcome followed by presentations, lunch and campus exploration time.

In between sessions on the curriculum, diversity and financial aid, the class had the chance to enjoy some ice cream from the Penn State Berkey Creamery and participate in lawn games including the “human knot,” relay races and “Extreme Rock, Paper, Scissors.”

The students started classes on July 16.
