at Its Undergraduate Open House


SCRANTON, PA (December 6, 2016)—Marywood University’s Office of University Admissions recently held a Toys for Tots drive at its November open house event. Nearly 150 items were donated by attending students and their families, who were encouraged to bring an unwrapped toy to the open house.
