Penn State Brandywine to hold annual Grill and Chill event

The Philadelphia area is sizzling under a record-breaking heat wave -- in an effort to cool off, Penn State Brandywine will host two great annual summer events. Spend A Summer Evening and Grill and Chill will both take place at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 22.

Grill and Chill is the campus’ free outdoor barbecue, open to incoming freshmen and the rest of the community -- not just Penn Staters. The event will feature beach-style food, kids can play in the oversized inflatables or sit for a caricature drawing, and for the young at heart there will be sand art and KISS 101.7 FM’s DJ GQ will provide a soundtrack the whole family can enjoy. There also will be an outdoor showing of Disney Pixar’s animated hit flick “Up” at dusk, so guests are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs for relaxing, drive-in-style movie.

Meanwhile, at the Spend A Summer Evening admissions program, high school seniors and their families can learn about the admissions process and have an opportunity to tour the campus before joining the rest of the community at Grill and Chill.
