We’re still catching up with our weekly countdown to our 25th reunion with another #93tothe25th post. The weekend of January 27-28th marked 67 weeks to go until our reunion, and for this august week we look back at Course Registration books! I know, exciting! Thank you to Allison Feder Fliegler, C’93, L’99, who shared these photos with us and instantly brought back memories of pouring over these schedules and attempting to create the perfect class schedule.

Remember that font for “Penn” and “University of Pennsylvania”?
This book was a great flashback – the course registration book with PARIS!
Spring 1990 Course Timetable – with PARIS!
The phone graphic is the best: “NEW REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS INSIDE.”
Well, what was inside this book? How to register for courses.
The scheduling procedure
How to use advance registration – if you you can see, based on the number on your Penn I.D. (your social security number most likely), you were assigned a date to call for registration, so the system could handle the call volume.
Advance registration instructions
There were instructions how to drop classes too.
How to request, adjust or drop courses using PARIS.
The Table of Contents
Remember the numbering for the classes – the 400 classes were for graduate and undergraduates.
Key to course descriptions
A listing of the seminar courses.

The listing of all the course times – oh how I remember pouring over these trying to select the best ones (i.e. not at 8am at DRL).
Descrption of classes
There were also ads in this book too.
New Deck Tavern – and it is still on campus!
Le Bus!! Sadly, no longer on campus.
