You know the main reasons to come home for Homecoming. Football. Tailgating. Old friends. Pretty fall colors and the feeling of being back at school for a new semester!
But I bet you aren’t prepared for many of the other offerings that await you when you come home to Penn. There is so much programming based on our Arts & Culture theme, this blogger had a difficult time narrowing down the field to just 4 events that might not be as well-known as the football game, and I’d like to highlight them for you below in illustrated form.
Friday, November 4
4 – 6 PM
Quaker Exchange: Alumni-Student Speed Networking
College Hall, Room 200
Quaker Exchange offers undergraduates a chance to gain valuable career insights and exposes alumni to the bright Penn students of today. What a useful event for everyone!
Saturday, November 5
10 – 11 AM
First Aid Care for Your Pet (part of the Penn Vet Animal Lovers Lecture Series)
380 South University Avenue
This event is an interactive session for pet owners and provides guidance and instruction for emergency situations. I might really need to take a break from the registration tent for this one because there is always something wrong with my poor Franco! Last night it was kitty pink eye. What will it be tomorrow? A broken kitty leg? What ever would I do?
Saturday, November 5
10:30 AM – 2 PM
Penn Alumni Arts Fair
Blanche Levy Park (College Green/Locust Walk)
This is your only chance throughout the year to view and/or purchase the enchanting creations of our very own Penn Alumni artists! Your talented fellow alumni will be waiting for you to stop by and visit them on Locust Walk!
Sunday, November 6
10:15 AM – 1 PM
Sunday Brunch and Tours at Penn’s Morris Arboretum
100 East Northwestern Avenue
The natural offerings of the Morris Arboretum are sure to provide a valuable respite during a busy weekend in the city! Plus, breakfast + lunch = brunch = good.
There is only a week left to register for these great events and many others! You can do so by clicking this link. See you at Homecoming!
