Road Trip to Penn @Harvard/Dartmouth Weekend

Author: Stephanie Yee, C’08

One of my favorite things about winter is going on road trips to attend Penn Men’s Basketball away games. This past weekend we braved the after-effects of Winter Storm Nemo and drove up to Harvard and Dartmouth to support the Quakers. While the two gyms were underwhelming (no one in the Ivy League can begin to compete with The Palestra), it was an amazing weekend full of basketball and quality time with fellow Penn alumni.

So much snow! Harvard Square in the distance.
