Woo hoo! This is DT's 1,000th post!
In honor of this post, I thought I'd post a special treat to all my alumni readers across the world who haven't been back to campus in quite some time.
After not being back on campus for 5 years, this past September I returned to Penn and discovered its many changes. In the video above, I take a brief trip down memory lane to many of the locations you, my readers, requested of me on Facebook.
As a bonus, you'll see that I've integrated photos and stories from what campus was like in the 90's.
Enjoy my tour through campus which covers:
- our namesake, the Dueling Tampons
- Vagelos Laboratories (the old Chemistry building)
- Furness Building (I reference THIS incident in the video)
- the new Annenerg Public Policy Building (I reference THIS photo album in the video)
- Sansom Street
- the changed Food Court
- Locust Walk
- Ben on the Bench (remember THESE contest entries?)
- Huntsman Hall (where the old bookstore was)
- 38th Street Bridge
- 40th and Walnut
- the former AEPi house location (THIS was the reason it was knocked down) (you've got to see this!)
- (Because my time on campus was limited, I couldn't get everything. So next time, I promise to get the new Bookstore, the Quad and Houston Hall!)
Thank you to Alison Cote (C'95) and Ira Goldklang (C'90) for supplying the stills of the old bookstore and its painted 38th street wall!
And a special thanks to my friend David Chalfin (C'96), a fantastic editor living in Los Angeles who edited this video together. Check out his reel HERE!
