Does anyone know if we can walk around the campus or is it closed to pedestrians? Thanks!

    Last I was in Philly was three weeks ago. Wife and I still have an apartment in University City since she is an adjunct in Philly and I’m stationed in Baltimore. Distance sucks.

    Anyways, check out the campus. Book store, closed. Penn Buildings, closed. Restaurants, take out only. Mind you, this was three weeks ago.

    But walk Locust Walk...
    Look or take pictures with the two Ben Frank statues.
    Throw up a peace sign next to the Love statue and take another picture with it at Love Park in center city (become a true Philadelphian).
    Pop your head out of the button near the library. Be courageous.

    Enjoy the beautiful campus. Drexel is right next door so make sure to check out their campus too. It is quite unique.

    All campus buildings are closed but you can still walk around the campus! Penn's campus is sort of blended in w/ the city itself so usually it's always open for pedestrians.

    Before you go I would try to print out a copy of a campus map (there are some on the internet -- I didn't check the Penn website) so you will have some idea of what buildings you are seeing, where you are going etc.

    You can walk around and you can dine outdoors
