Welcome to the Home of the Quakers!
My first impression of UPenn was not a favorable one. The second we stepped out of the train station I was in horror: pouring rain! Luckily I did bring my umbrella; nonetheless I still got drenched. I learned that Penn has a core curriculum though it is different from Columbia’s. Our tour of Penn was short because we had a meeting with four students that attend Penn. We met up with them and went out to have Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches! Delicious! We really got to learn about traditions and what it’s like attending Penn. The Quakers (Penn’s mascot) had different stories to tell since one was a commuter student, one was from California and one was from Saudi Arabia. It was nice to hear different perspectives. Afterwards, we decided to get some gelato, which was also delicious!
Overall, our visit to Penn was a very informative one about academics and lifestyle.
