Before Facebook There Was the Freshman Record (90 Weeks to Go!)

By Kiera Reilly, C’93

This weekend, August 19 – 20, 2016 marks 90 weeks to the Penn Class of 1993’s 25th reunion (May 11 – 13, 2018). #93tothe25th

Going through boxes of old papers, I found THE book that we used to find our classmates as we started Penn together – The Freshman Record.

Before Facebook, this was the book to look for people based on their high school, home town or what dorm they were living in at Penn. Everyone sent in their high school yearbook photos, and I remember once we made new friends at Penn, it was fun to look through the book and see our glamorous shots from high school. I think also upper classman used the book to scope out the freshman class?
