My school is best known for being the social Ivy League. We have several traditions that continue from when the school was founded in the mid 1700s, like throwing toast on the football field or dressing up for Hey Day. My school is also known for its diversity and for being an inner city university.
Penn is the best of both worlds -- it is both academically and socially stimulating. There are so many amazing academic opportunities, and the professors are really willing to help their students. Additionally, there are many clubs and activities on campus filled with diverse groups of students.
