Inaugurating the college’s eighth summer as a PFEW co-host (with Lycoming College), the teenagers were acclimated to a full college experience: moving into on-campus housing, eating meals in the Keystone Dining Room and attending programs in the Klump Academic Center. In addition to forming simulated companies and making imaginary business decisions all week long, the students will learn more about Penn College through activities that will include a campuswide quiz Wednesday.
