Editor’s note – We asked classmates to share photos from when we were students at Penn. Classmates sent us photos and shared their memories.

What I can say is that none of those photos feels like they took place yesterday—they all feel like they took place about ten years ago. I still see many of the lovely faces in them, and none of them look like they are even ten years older. I never took physics, so I can’t provide the quantum mechanics vs. general relativity explanation of how this works.

I guess I never wanted to be weighed down by the responsibility of carrying around a bulky camera, so absolutely one of the best things about being in a sorority was the ability to buy photos from various events. If not for that, I would have little proof that I ever socialized in college. Well, there were certainly clues in my first semester report card, but that doesn’t bring back fond memories like these photos.
