Friendships Formed in the Quad (56 Weeks To Go)

By Kiera Reilly, C’93, and Ebru Ural, W’93

As we continue counting down the 93 weeks to our 25th reunion next May, I asked fellow classmates to dig through their boxes, sort through their photos, and rack their brains for mementos, photos and memories to share of our time at Penn.

While searching for Hey Day photos, Ebru Ural, W’93, found this photo.

Friends made in the Quad at Penn in the early 90's

Jeff Liebert, EAS ’93, Ulrich Kausch, EAS’94, Eric Cheng, C’93, Justin Sowers, EAS ’93, and Alan Steenstrup, C’92

I asked Ebru how these friends all met, and here is what she wrote:

We were a true motley crew, a really great group of friends who all met as freshman neighbors in the Quad.  Justin, Eric, and Jeff all lived in Craig ’87 in the same hall.  I lived around the bend in Ware. Alan was a year ahead of us but probably is singularly responsible for bringing me into this group.

Starting with the superhero is Jeff Liebert EAS ’93 from Ronkokoma Long Island, then Ulrich Kausch…EAS ’94 from Germany, Eric Cheng Col’93 from Hong Kong, Justin Sowers EAS ’93 from New Mexico, and napping is Alan Steenstrup Col ’92 from Kenya…and me W’93 originally from Istanbul, Turkey.

To me this photo epitomizes the gifts of living in the Quad…lifelong friendships, laughs, and diversity.

That about sums it up doesn’t it?
