I went there so I am a bit biased. But it has some great buildings and has a college feel in a big city.

Penn's Campus is full of history, innovation, tradition and life. Walking through Locust Walk brings you back to college in one of the finest universities in the world. The Wharton school, the Moore school of engineering, Franlkin Field, the Palestra, are all world-class. A must...More

Nice campus to walk around. Trees warm it and buildings are well kept. Security was around which limited what you could see.

Lovely campus once you enter it from the streets that surround it. We explored those and found some interesting ethnic foods, Indian, Chinese. The campus itself has nice plants, well-marked plants and trees.

Beautiful campus. All about diversity, history, safety, community, giving back, and the students. Red carpet treatment for students and parents.

I came here on Easter Sunday, so all the buildings were locked. However, from the outside, the architecture was amazing, and the students there were so friendly. Not sure how actual classes are, but it's worth a half hour to take pictures.
