Lancaster, PA – Families, get your Easter baskets ready – ‘On Your Mark, Get Set, Hunt!’

Keep Calm – Spring is finally here! On Saturday, April 15, 2017, Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology hosted the Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Campus. Over 500 families, friends, and the community attended the event as they watched children of all ages with their lucky Easter baskets collect as many eggs as possible in hopes of finding one of three golden tickets.

Waiting with anticipation and excitement, the Easter Bunny welcomed everyone at the Jones Dining Hall for a delicious lunch. Nothing but laughter, smiles and excitement was in the air as families exchange ideas of what they’ll be doing this Easter season and children trading eggs and candy before taking photos with the Easter Bunny. 

You can relive the fun-filled day in the gallery below. We hope to see you next year!

Happy Easter from Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology!

Lancaster, PA – During the week of April 3, 2017, Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology celebrated Thaddeus Stevens’s 225th Birthday – from cupcakes to historical seminars, it was a week Thaddeus Stevens himself would be proud of.

Thaddeus Stevens was born on April 4, 1792 with a clubfoot that made it very difficult to walk. However, he did not let his physical challenges get the best of him. Over the years, Thaddeus Stevens became a landlord, teacher, lawyer, and a powerful politician who fought for the equal rights of all people.

The mission of Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology aims to honor the legacy of Thaddeus Stevens by educating Pennsylvania's economically and socially disadvantaged as well as other qualified students for skilled employment in a diverse, ever changing workforce and for full effective participation as citizens.

Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology welcomed Dr. Kathy Brabson, author of, Life of Thad Stevens: What Part of “All Men Are Created Equal” Do You Not Understand? and Thaddeus Stevens Society President, Ross Hetrick, as they discussed not only the life of Thaddeus Stevens but also the groundwork to preserving his legacy for the future. The College ended Thaddeus Stevens's Birthday Week with a graveside ceremony at his grave site at Shreiner Cemetery.
