Gorgeous - the gardens, the open spaces, the sculptures - I am so glad we took an informational tour to learn about the school and its contributions to the area and beyond. Almost makes me want to go back to school - as you walk the campus and see the buildings and hear the history behind them, you since the vibrancy of the place.

I recently attended classes at the UPenn campus. Everyone should experience the Penn campus for its beauty and history. We also went to the Penn Museum which was a terrifice museum. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!!

The best of everything! Excellent university in a breathtaking campus setting with the Philadelphia city vibrancy only steps away. A dream school for any qualified student who is fortunate enough to be admitted. Congrats!

As an institution of higher learning, Penn's worthy of its lofty US News and World Report ratings. As an urban campus, it's terrific and growing greener by the day. Take a walking tour of Locust Walk from 34th to 40th Street. Visit Penn Park on the river. Penn does the city proud.
