Lovely campus once you enter it from the streets that surround it. We explored those and found some interesting ethnic foods, Indian, Chinese. The campus itself has nice plants, well-marked plants and trees.

Beautiful campus. All about diversity, history, safety, community, giving back, and the students. Red carpet treatment for students and parents.

Beautiful buildings and surroundings give this urban university a feeling of home. So much to do and see. Academically sound and culturally diverse close to a thriving community.

I came here on Easter Sunday, so all the buildings were locked. However, from the outside, the architecture was amazing, and the students there were so friendly. Not sure how actual classes are, but it's worth a half hour to take pictures.

We visited UPenn law School with our daughter who had been offered a place there for her LLM. The School is one of the US Ivy League Schools with great history. It is well worth the visit!

Multiple generations have been associated with this fine institution although I am afraid the arrogance of those professors that bell to a B- (Harvard bells to an A-) may contribute to the high suicide rate. Great students for sure.

We wandered, looking at architecture and the historical markers. I especially liked the women's experiences inscribed in the sidewalk--very well done rendition of the history of change and the people whose persistence made it possible. The university has done a fine job of creating and...More
