Despite the summer heat, the coolest students throughout Orange County & the Inland Empire had a blast on Sunday, July 29 at this year’s annual Student Send-Off! From as far away as Redlands, Penn Staters and their families converged on Santa Ana filled with both excitement and anxiety about the adventures ahead.
There were 20 students, including incoming Freshman and Upperclassmen from various campuses (including World Campus!), along with mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and friends joining the Nittany Lion extended family. The attendees enjoyed getting to know other students in similar situations, either heading off from home for the first time or leaving loved ones behind for a few months to rejoin East Coast friends again.
The party, generously hosted by Peggy and Dale Quayle, was a celebration of achievement and being a part of one of the most distinguished universities in the country. It also kicks off the next chapter ahead for the young and bright minds that will represent both Penn State and our Chapter’s area.
