Students at the Stadium“I am going to be a junior here at William Penn University this school year (‘11–‘12). What I love about William Penn is the small class sizes that it offers. The teachers are definitely more hands-on with students and more attentive to individual needs. PASS is a great organization that brings fun events and activities to the school for the students to enjoy themselves and to get to know new people” –Kilie Anderson
