Each year high school students flood the campus in the summer months to determine if Penn might be a good college fit for them. As a top-notch research university it comes as no surprise the campus receives thousands of visitors each year, but it appears that Penn’s popularity knows no boundaries. In a first for the University, Penn has officially garnered interest from the canine persuasion as well!
In a recent visit, Daedelus (“Dade” for short) dropped in to learn more about this great place. Not wanting to discriminate based on fur; we gave him the royal treatment, showing him all that Penn has to offer!
So, we took him to where it all started – Ben Franklin. He seemed quite impressed.
And any visit to Penn isn’t complete without a stroll down Locust Walk.
He loved all of the artwork on campus, especially the LOVE Statue and Peace Sign.
He was particularly impressed by the architecture of the campus buildings, noting the Castle as one of his favorites.
He marveled when told about Penn’s impressive alumni community. He really thought it was cool that Charles Addams, the creator of The Addams Family, went to Penn too. Although he admits he was a little hesitant about being walked by Morticia.
After all that walking, he needed a break.
After the tour, he had a chance to sit down with Steve from PAARC and have all of his questions answered.
We think it’s fair to say he seemed to really appreciate the special attention he was given during his visit. And we loved having him!
