Penn Family Day: October 2
September 7, 2010, Volume 57, No. 02

Faculty and staff are invited to bring family and friends to the 18th annual Penn Family Day on Saturday, October 2, 2010. You can cheer on Penn’s football and women’s volleyball teams, stroll through the University Museum, or go for a skate at the Penn Ice Rink. No matter what activities you plan to enjoy, be sure to attend the Penn Family Tailgate Party for food, fun, games and more. All activities are hosted by the Division of Human Resources, in association with Penn Athletics.

If you’re interested in attending the Tailgate Party and/or football game, you’ll need advance tickets as well as your PennCard. Keep in mind the party will be held at a new location this year—on the north side of Franklin Field. You can receive up to four tickets at no cost, and additional tickets are $8 each. You must order your tickets by September 27, 2010. Free parking will be available for Penn Family Day with a faculty/staff PennCard.
