Adorable African penguin visits N.J. college (PHOTOS)

The school hosted Dassen, a 20-year-old African penguin.

It was a black tie affair Thursday at the North Hudson Campus of Hudson County Community College.

Well, not a quite, but one attendee did show up in a tuxedo. 

The school hosted Dassen, a 20-year-old African penguin from Jenkinson’s Aquarium in Point Pleasant Beach, along with aquarium staff for a “Penguin Lecture” that was free and open to the public. 

Nicole Ginsburg, the penguin supervisor at Jenkinson’s, and animal interpreter Jake Avelenda discussed the animal’s habitat, care, feeding, as well as conservation efforts, while those in attendance got an up-close look at the aquatic bird.
