HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE PENN COLLEGE TO SOMEONE WHO IS UNFAMILIAR WITH IT?
From the outside, Penn College is like many other colleges. The grounds are beautiful and well-maintained. The campus is clean. They have large pieces of artwork throughout campus. The students are hustling from one class to the next. But what draws you in is what the inside of the classrooms are like. They are not a lecture hall. The classrooms are a hospital, or a car wreck scene, or a natural disaster, or an autobody shop, or a restaurant, or a welding factory. They are real-world scenarios that the students must create, problem solve, and participate in. Those beautiful grounds you saw while walking on campus were tended to by the landscaping students. Those pieces of steel artwork you passed were welded together by your future classmates. That lunch you ate at Le Jeune Chef was prepared by the culinary arts students. Penn College is about the students, not the lectures, the grades, or the money. It’s the students, from the hands-on classrooms, to the welded artwork, to the food, and to the events like RotorFest. It's all about the students.
