The campus courtyard transformed into a community playground, with food vendors, live entertainment, and activities across the lawn. But it’s more than just an event to get-together with the students, faculty, and fellow alumni. President Robert Underwood tells PNC that Charter Day also serves as their biggest student orientation opportunity.
