New Student Week…(86 Weeks To Go)

By Kiera Reilly, C’93

This weekend, September 16-17, 2016, marks 86 weeks until the 25th Reunion of the Penn Class of 1993 (May 11 – 13, 2018)! Follow along with us we countdown the weeks to our reunion #93tothe25th: Follow us on Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram. Classmates are invited to join our Facebook and LinkedIn groups.

New Student Week (NSW) for the Penn Class of 1989 was twenty-seven years ago this week, so we are looking back at the first week we were at Penn.

I do not remember much about NSW, but I do still have my NSW t-shirt and a NSW pin. Here I am sporting my NSW t-shirt (remember how our t-shirts had to be super long to be stylish?) at a Brooks-Leidy hall brunch in the Upper Quad.

93_86_1Christine Lutton Foster, C’93, shared her NSW order form.

93_86_2Amy Korn Duque, C’93, G’93, found the original NSW brochure.

93_86_393_86_4Amy had a copy of the campus map from 1989. Notice building number 49 circled – Logan Hall. It has since been renamed and current students know it as Claudia Cohen Hall. Number 34 Hill House is currently closed for renovation, and across “Hill Field” is the new college house that opened this week.

Amy shared a brochure for Houston Hall. Have you visited Houston Hall recently? All of these stores are no longer there.

93_86_7In contrast to these old documents, I looked for the New Student Week information for this year. It’s now called New Student Orientation, and all the events are listed on the web, but there was also a pretty colorful brochure online. Wow, look at all the offerings for new Penn students!

93_86_893_86_9Things have definitely changed. It makes our New Student Week brochure look so last century (ack)!
