A Day in the Life at Penn

Over 80 students, faculty, and staff, participate in photo contest

Did You Know…

that more than 80 photographers submitted 500 images of campus life for the third iteration of the University-wide photo project, “A Day in the Life of Penn”? The Office of University Communications-led endeavor encouraged students, faculty and staff to document all aspects of campus life from sunrise to well after sunset on Tuesday, October 29th. In addition to the photos submitted to the University’s Flickr pool, photographers posted 172 images on Instagram as well as 260 tweets on Twitter marked with the hashtag #PennDayinLife.

Photographers captured some well-known campus and city landmarks in creative ways, including sunrise from a boat on the Schuylkill River, a detail of one of the stone fixtures in the Fisher Fine Arts Library, and a shot taken from the bottom of a hole in the iconic “Split Button” sculpture. Members of the Penn community also sent images from the campus outposts of Botswana, Guatemala, and Seattle.
