We traveled back to the campus in honor of my husband's graduation from this school 45+ years ago. It was sad to see all the fraternity houses that had been closed and abandoned, but the remainder of the campus still had its charms.

Loved the energy of this Ivy League community. The campus is beautiful with interesting architecture, lovely flower beds, and sculptures. There are food trucks with many choices of offerings from multiple cultures.

Whether you are there for a campus visit as a prospective student or just touring this historic campus, it is lovely, especially in April. Don't miss the new Nanotech center, the renovated roof top on Vaugh Lit, or Penn Park.

Many parking lots in the area. Some spots on the street. You pay for parking at a kiosk if you park on the street. Personally, I do a parking lot as fines in Philly are expensive and street parking is not free well into the... More
