We’ve seen other stellar Penn promotional videos in the past, but this one is truly classic as this 30 minute(!) video comes from 1957!
At first I thought it was a prank where someone ran a viddy-like filter through a video, but as I got deeper into the video I realized it was the real deal! It even has that narrator’s voice you’d think it would have. The biggest thing I’ve noticed was that the campus was much more green and lush –ivy growing on everything, huge trees on Locust Walk.
Check out some highlights of the video
11:00 – the DP staff and offices
11:38 – the lost tradition of freshmen wearing “dinks”!?
"Because of Penntertainment, I got scouted for Nickelodeon. I had such a great time talking with them. I may be a resource for a show on science, travel, geography, gender etc. Thanks for all you do. It really makes a difference." -Lisa Niver Rajna C’89
