Visiting the University of Pennsylvania : Philadelphia

After a visit to New York City for an academic conference, I took a couple of days to venture down south and visit two universities I’ve wanted to see for long – Princeton University in New Jersey, and University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Both are Ivy league, and how some of the best scholars in the world. The two campuses are quite different, the Princeton University is located near a small town and town life pretty much revolves around the university. UPenn, on the other hand, is one of several university campuses located on the western side of Philadelphia, a large and vibrant American city, and so it definitely feels more urban and connected to city life. UPenn isn’t as old or as beautiful as Princeton, but it is nice to walk around, and there are some areas that especially pleasant.

 

Here are my impressions of the UPenn campus.
