Ah, so THAT'S how you get to Penn Park (VIDEO)

UPenn and Penn Park and Walnut Street and PhiladelpiaLast week I did a post about Penn's new $43.5 million dollar addition: Penn Park.

I will say that even after I posted the video and saw the pictures of this Park I had some problems understanding how one would get there on the Penn campus.

Rest assured alumni who haven't been back to campus in a while; after the jump, Kelly Diamond (C'13), our DT undergrad correspondent has provided another one of her famous"15 second clips" which will put everything in perspective for you!

11 Penn alumni performances you need to check out

UPenn and Penn Live and Los AngelesLast week Los Angeles Penn alumni gathered in Hollywood to celebrate some great emerging Penn talent.

The night was filled with some dirty good comedy from host DJ Lubel (C'05) and great original music, improv, inspiring monologues, some over the top characters, a belting rendition of The National Anthem, and of course, a must-see musical(!) bit from the Bloomers alumni about what it means NOT to be Jewish at Penn. (hysterical!)

After the jump, check out some photos and videos from the night!

And congrats to Jeni Sue Birnbaum (C'08), Aimee Musil (C'06), Allison Karic (C'09), and EJ Baker (C'09) for putting together a spectacular event!
