Now and Then Thursdays: Penn’s Campus Gets Swanky

As you may have heard from the videos of President Gutmann’s visit to Los Angeles, the campus will be undergoing a pretty massive expansion shortly.

In my days (’92-’96), there was lots of construction on campus, but my biggest memory had to do with it taking my 4+ undergrad years to redo the exterior of College Hall. (!)

Thanks to Kiera Reilly (C’93, Director, Alumni Education & Travel), we now have exclusive video bringing you some changes happening on campus.

upennIn this installment, Kiera walks down Chestnut Street towards Center City and 34th Street. On the left, note Domus the newly built luxury apartments (there’s a pool in here people!). Looks like the campus continues to be getting high end.

To give you better reference, THIS VIDEO will show you that Kiera is at the intersection of 34th and Chestnut, where you have Domus on the northwest corner, Hill Field on the south east corner and the Law School on the south west corner.

Speaking of a changing campus, have you checked out this shocking video from last year’s Convention Center implosion?
