Penn College held the first of three Senior Visit Days on Friday, welcoming students heading into their final year of high school. After a welcome session with President Davie Jane Gilmour, the visitors heard academic presentations and toured labs, got an overview of financial aid and college life, took a peek at on-campus housing, lunched in the Keystone Dining Room, and had access to Admissions Office representatives to resolve all of their last-minute questions. Additional Senior Visit Days are set for July 16 and 29; campus tours are also available at 2:30 p.m. daily, Monday through Thursday.
