Keuka College’s Class of 2021 arrives on campus Wednesday, Aug. 23.

Several activities are planned to make the newest students feel like part of the Keuka College family — and help make Penn Yan feel like their second home.

During Wolf Week, which runs through Sunday, Aug. 27, new freshman and transfer students will do more than just get know their classmates. They will also learn about the different offices, services, and programs available on campus, and get acclimated to campus before the upperclassmen arrive. Classes begin Monday, Aug. 28.

Activities include as picnics, music, a dance, a drive-in movie, as well as meeting faculty, taking placement exams, assisting with a community service project on the Outlet Trail, learning about college resources, and more.

Those resources include taking books, movies, and other materials out of Lightner Library, where members of the public may purchase a Lightner Library card for $25 a year ($35 per couple).

Members of the community are also welcome to shop in the college’s bookstore and enjoy coffee at the Wolf Den Café, both located in Keuka Commons. Members of the community are also welcome to enjoy a swim, fish (with proper licensure), or borrow a kayak at Point Neamo, while a lifeguard is on duty.
