Parent Weekend

In collaboration with the Tourism Committee of the Chamber, William Penn will host a Parent Weekend in the fall for students, parents, and community members to interact. Oskaloosa is important to our students and the experience they have here while attending WPU. 

Let’s show them Oskaloosa from downtown: food trucks, Farmer’s Market, a variety of activities, special discounts, and musicians for everyone to enjoy!

Penn Parent

The Penn Parent Program (PPP) was started as an effort to build relationships between community members and WPU students. This program aims to provide role models, leadership, and guidance to students who participate, as it allows students to create a sense of home away from home. The purpose of PPP is to enhance students’ experiences at William Penn University.
