“Get lunch at a truck and find a place to sit on college green”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

Ben Franklin sits at the center of the campus and it's a great spot to sit and consider what 250 has done on this city campus with a green heart. From the Ben Franklin statue you will have a 360 view of the architecture over the decades and the student traffic year-round is fun to watch.

“A Haven for Living and Learning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

Not only is the University itself among the nation's elite institutions, but its campus in West Philadelphia has undergone a renaissance in recent years. It is a beautiful place to be and learn.

“Gothic campus - cool but creepy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

I went to see the Wharton School of Business, after which I walked around the University of Pennsylvania campus. Not as impressive as Harvard, Princeton & Georgetown - in my opinion - slightly messy and with several architectural styles fighting for attention, but the Gothic structures were so cool to look at, like a Halloween type of creepy.
