    The campus is absolutely beautiful! I've seen bits and pieces of the area, and for someone from the middle of nowhere, UPenn was nothing like I expected. Very pleased with what I saw, and hopefully I'll end up at this beautiful university.

    I rate UPenn at a 10 out of 10, I love my school and everything about it. I think what really makes us great is the oppurtunity to have a well rounded education so critical thinking is put at the center of all classes. In addition it is a beautiful campus with much history.

    All students have high academic standards. Everyone tries to think 5 years ahead and gets involved in everything freshman fall. If you want a life without a moment to catch your breath, Penn is the right place for you.

    I had some friends who went there. They said it was nice. I will take their word for it. I just want a cap for doing this. Don't read this, I have only ever heard of this campus.

    UPenn has a beautiful campus, in the city. It has many attractive features such as a flexible curriculum and key connections in many fields. The students seem involved and not as cutthroat as other Ivy League students.

    The University of Pennsylvania is a school of opportunity, and is only as good as you make it. I loved it with all my heart, because I let it take my breath away every moment as I walked down the beautiful Locust Walk to my classes, dorms, or to meet with friends. It can be challenging at times because of the academic rigor and competition, but the relationships you form with the amazing people around you can get you through it!

    I absolutely love attending Penn. It's an academically rigorous environment with brilliant professors and motivated students. However, it remains a highly social environment as well, striking a perfect balance between work and play.`
