For the past 18 months, I have walked to work from West Philly, entering campus on Woodland Walk. This is where the School of Veterinary Medicine sits with the beautiful water fountain out front and the amazing image by Eadweard Muybridge in the lobby.
My daily route takes me by the Hamilton Walkway entrance and continues down Woodland Walk by The Quad.
Finally, I make my way across Spruce Street, passing by the Class of 1956 Trolley, behind what is soon to be the Wistar Institute, then by the LOVE sculpture on College Green to Sweeten Alumni House.
Starting next week, this will change as I am moving to a new location. My entry point to Penn’s campus will shift to the South East side and I will walk by the Penn Museum, Franklin Field, and Irvine Auditorium.
Although I have become familiar and comfortable with my walk from West Philly, I’m excited to see what new things I can learn about campus now that I will have this different perspective.
