[Photo Story] Homecoming Week 2017 Kicks Off With Pollock Party

Penn State Homecoming kicked off the week with a Pollock Party aimed at connecting freshmen to the rest of their Penn State family.

The carnival-style event took place on Monday, and volunteers provided comfort food like Insomnia Cookies, pizza, and popcorn, as well as an arrangement of games for students to play. Due to inclement weather, the party was held inside Pollock commons this year rather than the Pollock Courtyard.

Homecoming merchandise, such as sweatshirts and t-shirts, was on display throughout the event.
