Penn Family Day–Saturday, October 6
September 4, 2007, Volume 54, No. 2

Saturday, October 6 marks our 15th annual Penn Family Day! Give your family and friends a first-hand view of the dynamic life on Penn’s campus as you bring them along to cheer on the Penn football team, visit the Penn Museum, or see the Penn women’s volleyball team in action. No matter what you plan to do, be sure to come to the Penn Family Tailgate Party first for a picnic lunch, children’s activities, give-aways, and much more.

If you’re coming to the Tailgate Party and/or the football game, you’ll need tickets as well as your PennCard to gain admission.  You can get up to five tickets at no cost, and additional tickets are just $6 each.  Make sure you order your tickets by the deadlines (September 25 via intramural mail; September 28 in person at the Athletic Ticket Office). No tickets are needed for the Penn Museum and the volleyball game–just bring your PennCard. 

As an added bonus, you’ll be able to enjoy free parking at Garage #37 (34th and Chestnut) when you show your PennCard.  For complete event details and a ticket order form, go to www.hr.upenn.edu/quality/staffrecognition.asp and select “Penn Family Day”.  If you have any questions, contact Human Resources at QOWL@hr.upenn.edu or (215) 898-1012.
