A Grand Penn Welcome

A grand Penn welcome to the incoming class of 2020 and all new transfer students from around the globe. And a welcome again to returning students, undergrad and grad, who are excited to begin a healthy and successful new year. While remembering the excitement and anticipation of years of work and planning, the staff at CAPS offers this quote by Gene Wilder.

"The suspense is terrible... I hope it'll last." -- Willy Wonka (Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory)
