This past weekend, August 26-27, 2016 marked 89 weeks to the Penn Class of 1993’s 25th reunion (May 11 – 13, 2018). #93tothe25th
While on campus last week to visit former colleagues in Penn’s Alumni Relations office, it was move-in day. Campus was buzzing with new students and their families moving into the Quad, High Rises and the new College House.
I walked around campus, soaking it all in, and seeing what has changed since we were on campus moving in to start our freshman year (27 years ago).
As I walked along Spruce Street towards Upper Quad, I was pleased to see a familiar sight – the Real Le Anh’s food truck!
And a bit further up Spruce, immediately past the Quad was Beijing, one of my favorite places for a Sunday night dinner when I was a freshman living in Upper Quad.
In our first post counting down the weeks to our 25th Reunion, we listed the, “93 Reasons Why We Love Penn.” Many of the memories classmates shared were food-related. While several of our favorite haunts are closed, it was nice to see at least two remain, still serving the Penn community for so many years.
What were your favorite off-campus eateries when we were students? Let us know in the comments below.
We are accepting photos and memories from our fellow 1993 classmates to be featured on a future #93tothe25th countdown post. Email us at UPenn1993@gmail.com.
And don’t forget to save the date of our 25th reunion on your calendar:
May 11 – 13, 2018!
