The Gallery at Penn College

About 50 architecture students from The Pennsylvania State University visited Penn College's masonry lab Wednesday, gaining hands-on experience and a heightened appreciation of  the relationship between design and construction. The traditional spring event highlights the college's affiliation with Penn State; emphasizes masonry's ties to another profession; delineates a career path that women might otherwise overlook; and illustrates the tangible support of Watsontown Brick, Glen-Gery Corp. and other industry representatives who provide technical assistance and thousands of dollars' worth of supplies for the college's Construction Masonry Building.
