Capitol Day 2012
Every April, Penn State Wilkes-Barre participates in Capitol Day.
This is a university-wide event where Penn State students from all disciplines and campuses meet with legislators
in Harrisburg to advocate on behalf of the university. The goal is to discuss state appropriations for Penn State.
This effort helps promote state funding to Penn State and prevents tuition from rising rapidly.
This is an SGA sponsored community-building event which
is held toward the end of the spring semester. Various clubs are encouraged to participate.
Table games are operated by the clubs for “funny money”.
The “funny money” can be redeemed by the students at the end of the night for prizes. Students can also enjoy
mocktails in the Hayfield House ballroom.
Every fall and spring, the Four Season’s club hosts a bonfire.
This is a community-building event which brings students together over food, fun, and spirited competition.
The event is held on the lawn of the Student Commons, in the beginning of the fall semester
and the end of the spring semester.
The Haunted Forest is a fund-raising event, sponsored by the
Student Government Association, which benefits children battling pediatric cancer and their families.
Planning for this event begins at the onset of the fall semester and progresses through the month of October,
during which the event is open to the public. This event is sure to scare the pants off cancer!
