Penn State Day Oct. 16, 2010

Penn State Brandywine will host its annual, free fall festival known as Penn State Day on Saturday, Oct. 16.

The carnival-themed event will feature a 5K "Dash and Walk" around the campus sponsored by the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce (8:00 a.m. registration, 10:00 a.m. start, $25 registration fee) and a Penn State Brandywine soccer game (1:00 p.m. start).

For high schoolers considering college at Penn State Brandywine, there will be a morning “Get to Know Us Program” from 10 a.m. to noon. Admissions staff will discuss what it takes to get accepted. Students will learn about the many academic and social opportunities on campus, take part in an application workshop explaining what to do when it's time to apply, and get a student-led tour of the campus .

From 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., festival-goers will vote on the best dressed Penn Stater, watch their tots race to the finish line in the Toddler Trot, make funny t-shirts, get cheesy in the photo booth, jam out to live music and enjoy tasty treats on the campus lawn.

All events will be held rain or shine.
