Scenes from Freshmen Move-In…(87 Weeks To Go)

By Kiera Reilly, C’93

Our countdown to our 25th Penn reunion continues as this past weekend, September 9-10, 2016, marked 87 weeks until the 25th Reunion of the Penn Class of 1993 (May 11 – 13, 2018). #93tothe25th Follow along with us: we are on Social Media! Follow us on Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram. Classmates are invited to join our Facebook and LinkedIn groups.

I was visiting family and friends back east a few weeks ago, and the day I visited campus happened to be a freshmen move-in day. There were new families wandering all over campus, and it was buzzing with activity.

This video of Locus Walk from was taken in front of the Sweeten Alumni House. It’s busy as usual with new students and their families walking through campus. You can hear the Penn Band in the background (they’re playing in Perelman Quadrangle, behind Houston Hall).

I wandered over to Houston Hall, following sounds of the Band, and listened to them playing. Can you guess the song?

The Penn Band plays.

Later in the afternoon, new Penn families were gathered on College Green waiting to hear Penn’s President and Provost address them. While they were waiting, the Penn Glee club sang a medley of Penn songs.

Do you remember moving to campus to start our freshman year twenty-seven years ago?

We are collecting photos for an upcoming post on our freshman dorm rooms and roommates. Please share your photos with us by emailing them to upenn1993@gmail.com.

We hope to see you back on campus in 2018 for our 25th reunion!

Glee Club Sets Sail

Author: Lisa Ellen Niver, CAS’89

One of my favorite things about campus life at Penn was all the incredible student performances. I loved to see  performances by Counterparts, Mask and Whig, and the Glee Club. Not being musical myself, I am still convinced in my importance on the theater team because without an audience– it is only a dress rehearsal!! Now that I am long gone from campus life, I still love live performances and being connected to Penn and my friends.

Recently, a fellow alum put me in touch with the current Glee Club members who are celebrating their 150th Anniversary. And now, they will be performing on the Celebrity Cruises ship, the Summit, this summer in Bermuda.

Always wanted to see Bermuda? Ready for live performances from your favorite Penn Group? Need an excuse to get away? The Glee Club wants to celebrate with you!

Don’t miss the boat. Join the Glee Club May 20, 2012 as they set sail from New York to Bermuda on the Summit. Feel free to contact me as soon as possible to reserve your room at lniver@cruiseandresort.com.
