At a Penn Fund event in Los Angeles in October, the featured speaker was one of our classmates – Beth Winkelstein, ENG’93, Vice Provost for Education at Penn! It was awesome to have someone in our class speak to distinguished alumni, and it was nice to catch up with Beth after her talk.
But what was really cool was that Beth brought a Penn sweatshirt to the event. A Penn sweatshirt that she had since she was a student at Penn.
That had me wondering who else still has a Penn sweatshirt? Here are some of the photos of sweatshirts that classmates sent us.

These are some of my vintage shirts from back in the day. I bought them on campus when I was a student. Occasionally I wear the Not Penn State shirt, but I’m always a little concerned about offending the Nittany Lions. I love when I get a chuckle or thumbs up from fellow Quakers, though.

I did the trendy cut the v-neck thing. Basically every seam in the wrist and the waist is ripped. It’s falling apart.
I think during Quaker Days in spring of 1989. I stayed overnight in the Quad and hung out with a host, etc etc.

Here’s a pic of my old Champion Penn sweatshirt. I got it as a gift from a family friend who was a freshman at Penn when I got in Early Decision in December. It made it through all four years at Penn. Now it is fragile and filled with holes but I still wear it 25 years later.

This is the sweatshirt my mom bought upon her first parents visit our freshman year. Still holding on it! Wore it to the Penn Women’s basketball game last year at UCLA!

I discovered this old photo from after we graduated. I had to ask the other people in the photo what we were all doing….
After some back and forth on email, we determined that it was probably a pre or post Penn-Columbia basketball game at Deb and Jef’s apartment in Morning Side Heights while Deb was in law school. We estimated the time frame to be 1995 – 1996. One thing we did agree on was that the Penn sweatshirt never goes out of style!

This was the sweatshirt I bought before the 1992-1993 season when I worked for WXPN and came on all road trips as the Quakers won the Ivy and almost beat U Mass in Syracuse in the NCAA Tournament. It’s great to see Steve Donahue back where he belongs and Penn in 1st this season!
Do you still have a Penn sweatshirt from when we were students? Send us a picture of it!
