To reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 consistent with the Iowa Department of Health, William Penn University has announced restrictions for summer camp activity on the premises. Any overnight camp will be limited to no more than 50 campers. All day camp activity will take place outdoors and use of the Penn Activity Center is prohibited for anyone’s use other than William Penn students and employees. This decision is based on the governor’s proclamation and CDC guidelines (which would require social distancing and additional hygiene measures) and in the interest in protecting the participants along with the students and employees at William Penn University.
Commencement ceremonies scheduled for May 9, 2020 have been rescheduled for October 10, 2020. Please watch your William Penn email and our website for more information.
