This will be my first time in my whole academic career that I’ve never gone home for Spring Break. I’m used to running away from the cold to sunny Las Vegas’s upper 60 degree. This year, I will be staying put. I’ve survived some crazy snow storms and my master’s comprehensive exam these past few weeks. Now, I’m crossing my fingers it doesn’t snow while I’m on spring break. Although it’s only a week, it feels like I have an enormous amount of time on my hands! What should I do to fill in that time? Sleep in? Order out? Watch Netflix non-stop? Ah, that’s what the weekends are for!
I’m debating where to go and what to check out in the city. I’ve recently received 2 free tickets to the Barnes Museum which I plan on exploring. I also have a curiosity to check out the Philadelphia Flower Show currently going on. Here’s a list of possible places I might go to:
Reading Terminal – what treasures does it hold?
The Penn Museum– it’s free for Penn students!
The Edgar Allan Poe House – I hear admission is free
The Liberty Bell Center – I figure this should be on my to do list
Love Park– It’s iconic. It’s as must.
The Philadelphia Zoo– taking a break from school work and watching animals be animals sound appealing
King of Prussia Mall– because a girl’s got to do some window shopping on a graduate school budget
Attend a Pacer’s game – because I can’t live in Philly without actually experiencing a sporting event
I’m also searching for the best cheesesteak hoagie in town. This might take some in depth research. Any suggestions would be great!
If anyone is attending NASPA’s (Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education) Annual Conference in Baltimore on March 17-19th please let me know. I would love to connect with Penn Alumni.
