Under sunny skies with the smell of barbecue in the air, hundreds of students, faculty and staff turned out on the East Falls Campus Sept. 7 to mark the start of the academic year and celebrate the new Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University).

Attendees enjoyed food, music, giveaways and more on the picture-perfect late summer afternoon. Some students challenged each other to beanbag toss gamesĀ or races in a bounce house, while others stood in line for tater tots served by Jefferson Chancellor Stephen Spinelli Jr., PhD, or made their own plush animals featuring t-shirts with the new Jefferson logo.

During welcoming remarks, Spinelli was joined by Stephen K. Klasko, MD, MBA, president and CEO of Jefferson; Mark Tykocinski, MD, university vice chancellor and provost; and Jefferson mascot Phil the Ram.
