Family Day Weekend Prep

We’re excited about the busy weekend we have ahead of us welcoming accepted students to campus! Tomorrow’s Family Day event is the centerpiece, as we’re expecting more than 800 accepted students and 2,500 people total to spend the day at PC. As we get prepared for tomorrow, we also have a number of students already here today for our Day in Friartown program, Liberal Arts Honors Recognition Dinner, Night in Friartown Multicultural Student event, and our Campus Tours. This is definitely one of our favorite weekends of the entire year – getting to see (in person!) so many excited new members of the PC family and the Class of 2018!
