Try the “Blitzkrieg Benedict,” a yummy twist on the classic breakfast favorite. 10 a.m.: Following breakfast, head over Cira Green to enjoy the beautiful Philadelphia skyline. Cira Green has a variety of activities such as yoga classes that would be fun to do with friends. 12 p.m.: Yoga at Cira Green is bound to stir up an appetite. For a true taste of Philly, try Honeygrow. Honeygrow offers a variety of stir fry and salad options.

The Woodlands is a National Landmark located on Woodland Ave. that features a federal mansion, stable, and beautiful garden-turned-cemetery. Don’t miss the cemetary’s arboretum, which features over 1,000 trees.
8 p.m.: Start your night off right by seeing the newest blockbuster at Cinemark University City, located on the corner of Penn’s campus. Grab some popcorn and a soft drink, sit back, and enjoy the show! For a stress-free experience, be sure to reserve your ticket online before arriving. 10 p.m.: After the movie, head down the block to Smokey Joe’s.

Penn Lingo & Landmarks
You may be walking through Penn’s campus questioning what all those weird terms and acronyms uttered amongst students and faculty actually mean. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with all the Penn lingo & landmarks to make sure you fit in right from the start!
Bring Your Own (Booze) BYO means bring your own alcohol. Many restaurants and on-campus events are BYO, so be on the lookout for that!
See And Be Seen This can be used as an adjective or verb to describe someone who wants to be seen by the Penn community. You’ll find them sitting in popular spots around campus, like the tables outside ARCH or on the benches outside Harnwell.
Counseling and Psychological Services This is Penn’s counseling center on 3624 Market St., which offers short-term, confidential services to Penn students at no cost.
Division of Public Safety Penn’s safety division. These are the people who send you a text when a crime happens near you!
Group Study Room You can find study rooms in most buildings around campus, such as Van Pelt Library. Most are open to all Penn students, except the ones in Huntsman and the Wharton Academic Research Building, which are only for Wharton students. You can reserve a GSR through Penn Mobile.
Medical Emergency Response Team (aka our local guardian angels). The MERT team is a group of student EMTs who respond to emergency calls on campus. Usually, this happens when someone is so incapacitated that they can’t move on their own. You’ll probably hear, “[insert name] just got MERT(ed)” during your time at Penn.
On-Campus Recruiting This is a great networking opportunity for students, as recruiters from various firms come to meet students interested in working for them. 10 The Daily Pennsylvanian Summer at Penn · 2022
The Daily Pennsylvanian — your favorite newspaper, duh!
The name of a building . This building is home to three cultural resource centers on campus: La Casa Latina, PAACH, and Makuu: The Black Cultural Center.
The Psi Upsilon fraternity, which is located across from the ARCH building on 36th St. and Locust Walk and looks like a castle.
Stands for Van Pelt Library, where Penn students congregate to stress (or slack off) on work.
The large button sculpture located in front of Van Pelt Library on Locust Walk. The story is that this button flew off of the vest of the Ben Franklin statue right across Locust.
The High Rises
This term refers to the three upperclassmen dorms: Harnwell, Harrison, and Rodin, which are near the Dueling Tampons. They all boast breathtaking views of the city and Locust Walk, and they are conveniently located near many restaurants.
A popular meeting spot on campus at 37th St. and Locust Walk. Rumor has it that if you step on the middle of the compass at the beginning of the semester, you’ll fail your first midterm of the semester. Dare to try?
A building called David Rittenhouse Laboratory at 33rd and Walnut Sts. It slightly resembles a high school building.
The bridge that connects the High Rises to the rest of campus. It serves as a daily workout routine for upperclassmen. During the winter, you might have to battle strong winds to get over it.
The LOVE Statue
A replication of Robert Indiana’s famous original piece! You’ll find it near The Button at 36th St. and Locust Walk.
The Starbucks located below 1920 Commons. They accept Dining Dollars, and you can order ahead using Penn Mobile.
Student Health Services, located at 3535 Market St. They are the ones who send you emails about your vaccination status!
