Fall 2017

Up before the sun, Penn’s community is always on the move. Whether our heads are in the books or hands are on the table, we still find time for fun.

On Wednesday, Nov. 1, the Office of University Communications challenged interested participants to document the pace and energy of campus using the hashtag #PennDayInLife on Instagram. About 300 people contributed more than 350 images.

As a community, we documented Penn athletes and their daily grind, researchers hard at work in labs, and the campus as its trees changed color for fall. We heard honorable lectures and transformative projects announced, and watched professors share knowledge during classes and students groove at dance sessions.

That, and so much more, proved it to be a bustling day. But, that’s typical here. A day in the life of Penn is always an adventure.
