I’m Calling ‘Omaha’ on the Snow

Welcome From Craig

What’s old is new again.

I’ve had that thought many times in my nearly two years on campus. I am, after all, a quintessentially nontraditional student. (That’s another way of saying I’m “old.”) Read more…

Fireworks during Welcome Weekend

It’s that time of the year again. Books and tools are flying off the shelves of The College Store, returning students have flocked back to Penn College, and parents dropped off their children for the start of campus life. College is finally back in full swing. Read more…
