I am a freshman at the University of Pennsylvania and I absolutely love it. The people here are incredible, kind, and inspiring. Classes are difficult and there is a heavy workload, but not enough to create unhealthy stress. I enjoy the food in the dining halls, and the numerous clubs available for involvement.

Penn is a great school for graduate school. The campus and surrounding area is really nice - there are restaurants, bars, fast food, shopping, and convenience stores all within a five minute walk. Professors are helpful, but they are also very busy as they are so involved. Being in Philly provides a great living experience, although the cost of living is pretty expensive.

Thus far I've only taken a few classes at my school, so I don't feel I can give a completely accurate opinion. I have never agreed with Gen Ed courses, and professors that teach entry level courses seem to take them too seriously.
