Show Your Penn Pride

Author: Aimee LaBrie

There are many ways to show your Penn pride each and every day. For example, my entire wardrobe consists of red and blue, and I wear some color combination of this every day :

You can read more about it by visiting our Facebook page. You can also get into the habit of “liking” our posts by doing so now on the Penn Facebook page here.
