Course Registration (67 Weeks To Go)

By Kiera Reilly, C’93, and  Allison Feder Fliegler, C’93, L’99

We’re still catching up with our weekly countdown to our 25th reunion with another #93tothe25th post. The weekend of January 27-28th marked 67 weeks to go until our reunion, and for this august week we look back at Course Registration books! I know, exciting!  Thank you to Allison Feder Fliegler, C’93, L’99, who shared these photos with us and instantly brought back memories of pouring over these schedules and attempting to create the perfect class schedule.

Remember that font for “Penn” and “University of Pennsylvania”?

This book was a great flashback – the course registration book with PARIS!

The phone graphic is the best: “NEW REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS INSIDE.”

Well, what was inside this book? How to register for courses.

The scheduling procedure

How to use advance registration – if you you can see, based on the number on your Penn I.D. (your social security number most likely), you were assigned a date to call for registration, so the system could handle the call volume.
