University of Pennsylvania (UPenn)

Welcome to the campus of the University of Pennsylvania. One of the first universities in North America. Founded in one building by Benjamin Franklin and others in 1751, and today located on 299 acres in the neighborhood of West Philadelphia. We will see some of the architecturally important buildings housing the schools of business, astronomy, nanotechnology, and engineering to name a few. We will see dormitories, restaurants, shops and beautifully maintained grounds. I will give information about Philadelphia, including a very brief history, its present-day transportation services, weather, and safety. As I walk, I invite questions and welcome comments.

I am a certified Philadelphia tour guide with ten years of experience in leading small-large groups. I am a 4th generation Philadelphian and have raised my own family here. My eldest son is a graduate of Penn and I am sensitive to the concerns of sending children off to college. I wish every student to have a rich and successful university experience and every parent to be confident that they made the right choice.
