More Dorm Rooms and T-Shirts (37 Weeks To Go)

By Kiera Reilly, C’93, Allison Feder Fliegler, W’93, L’99, Josh Frank, C’93, Jennifer Jarett, C’93, and Alice Lai Platt, C’93

Our 38 Weeks To Go post featured old Penn t-shirts. Our 77 Weeks To Go post featured photos of dorm rooms. Our 37 Weeks To Go post (that would be this post), will have a little of each of those posts. So, for our classmates who are only now sorting through their boxes of Penn memorabilia or digging around to see if they still have an old Penn t-shirt or sweatshirt, there is still time to have those items included in a post!

Thanks to Allison Feder-Fliegler, W’93, L’99, we have t-shirts from Warwick and Commie House to share.

Josh Frank, C’93, shared this about the Warwick shirt:

It was designed by David “Bip” Lavine, C’93, who was roommates with Josh Perelman. He was a terrific artist, and really put a lot of thought into the design of the shirt.

As noted by Jen Jarrett, Bobby constantly walked around in a towel, and was often singing (he truly has an incredible singing voice), so that’s why there are little musical notes around him.

If I recall correctly, the tower on top looked like one of the ones on or near Warwick in the Quad, and the picture quality isn’t good, but I think there’s a Kilroy or something peeking out from the bottom of it.

Of all of my dozens of shirts from Penn (fraternity, Mask & Wig, etc.), that one was always my favorite. We had a great floor, and having Bobby as our RA was an incredible gift.

Josh wrote this in response to a lively post in our class Facebook group about dorm rooms and RA’s, and the RA for Warwick One, Bobby Gonzalez, C’90, (now a professional actor known as Robert Gant), was quite popular! (Stay tuned for more on Warwick One in a future post).

Allison shared a photo of her freshman dorm room in the Quad.

Alice Lai Platt shared some photos from Hill House.

Alice writes,

You lived in Hill (hell) if your campus tour failed to include the quad, or if you got advice from someone who majored in engineering or math. The rooms were so small that my roommate and I could sit on our own beds and still hand each other the phone without getting up. I spent a lot of time outside and around campus!

I met one of my best friends there. Her roommate never showed up so she had a room all to herself. I loved hanging out in her extra space.

Way back in 1989 we had phones in the rooms! Here I am with one of my freshman roommates, Lisa Bardfeld Shapiro, C’93.

Penn T-Shirts Survive (38 Weeks To Go)

By Kiera Reilly, C’93 with photos from Jennifer Bernstein, C’93, Sonia Biswas, C’93, and Howard Levene, ENG’93

Looking for memories of our time at Penn, I found a long forgotten box full of old Penn t-shirts. I wondered if anyone else from Penn 1993 saved their Penn t-shirts, and it turns out they did. Here is a selection of some of the t-shirts that still survive with our classmates 25+ years later.

Penn Dixie t-shirt from Howard Levene, ENG’93.

I found an old Penn Debate t-shirt.

And a Penn Band t-shirt from Howard.

Sonia Biswas, C’93, had a t-shirt that Penn Dining Service gave out for Spring Break in 1990.

A Penn Engineering shirts from Howard Levene, ENG’93.

I found a t-shirt celebrating Penn’s 250th anniversary.

Several of us had the New Student Orientation t-shirt. All seem to have faded in the same spots.

And as modeled here by Sonia Biswas, the t-shirts were always huge. Sonia says, “I always thought the shirts were ridiculous since I’m tiny, and they were all gigantic on me. We had no choice, since the only option was always XL. Ridiculous!”

Do you still have old Penn t-shirts? We are still collecting photos of shirts for more posts. Please email us photos of your t-shirts to upenn1993 {at} gmail.com!
