Spring Fling weekend at Penn was a two-day festival held in April in the Quad. During the day there were food vendors, student performing arts groups and bands would sing or dance on a stage in the Lower Quad, and often there were games and other activities in the Upper Quad. At night there were concerts with popular bands or comedians performing in Irvine or Hill Field our senior year.
We remember fondly the fun we had at Fling each year, even though it seemed like it was often cold and wet. Amazingly, we have photos from Fling – and t-shirts – that our classmates shared with us. Take this trip down memory lane of Spring Fling 1990 – 1993.
Spring Fling our Freshman year was called, “Fling in Wonderland.”
Spring Fling’s theme in 1990 was, “the Wild Fling.”
Spring Fling Junior year was, “Mardi Gras at Penn.”
Our Senior year, it was a, “Three Ring Fling.”

This year, for the first time since it began in the 70’s, Penn’s Spring Fling was moved to Penn Park and was only on one day. We wonder how the students of today will remember Fling. Do you remember Fling when you were a student?
