Fall Semester

academic office window

Notes:     And just like that, summer is over.

This is an office window at the Wharton School of Business. Shortly after I moved to Philadelphia this summer, my parents came to visit and my father took us on a tour of the Penn campus where he went to school years before (for both undergrad and grad). This window is right across the (pedestrian) street from the frat house where he used to live (it’s no longer a frat house, I don’t think, but I can’t remember what the sign said that it is now). There’s definitely something to be said for living on campus and having a short commute, but living in the building across the street from your classes? I wonder if there’s ever such a thing as being too close.

It’s fascinating to me to actually see in person this place that I had heard so much about growing up, fascinating to see that it really does exist, fascinating to see traces of the life my father had before … well, me. :) And it’s equally fascinating as I step foot on the Penn campus now for my own purposes, making my own way.
