Penn T-Shirts Survive (38 Weeks To Go)

By Kiera Reilly, C’93 with photos from Jennifer Bernstein, C’93, Sonia Biswas, C’93, and Howard Levene, ENG’93

Looking for memories of our time at Penn, I found a long forgotten box full of old Penn t-shirts. I wondered if anyone else from Penn 1993 saved their Penn t-shirts, and it turns out they did. Here is a selection of some of the t-shirts that still survive with our classmates 25+ years later.

Several of us had the New Student Orientation t-shirt. All seem to have faded in the same spots.

And as modeled here by Sonia Biswas, the t-shirts were always huge. Sonia says, “I always thought the shirts were ridiculous since I’m tiny, and they were all gigantic on me. We had no choice, since the only option was always XL. Ridiculous!”
