Photo Memories of Penn (26 Weeks To Go)

We asked classmates to share their Penn photos with us as we take a trip down memory lane in advance of our 25th Reunion. ~Penn Class of 1993

In the days before smart phones, we took pictures with film and there was no tagging feature, so we rely on our weary brains to remember “what were we thinking?”…

The first picture is a scene from the Quad freshman year, featuring some stylish shades and a blazer.

The picture of us wearing ties was taken in some sort of “semi-formal”, though I’m not really sure what that meant, except maybe an excuse to show we knew how to tie a tie (or wear a cool v-neck sweater in the case of Chris Winfield).

Joanna Kwa chimes in to say, “Hahaha! Yes, the ties were for a wine and Cheese party at our apartment during senior year. We were trying to act all grown up! The guys were all sitting in my bedroom! You can see the small remnant of my hat from Hey Day in the back.”
The last two pictures are, I believe, from senior year at a party at our house… I think it featured a lot of beer and hot dogs.
