Penn Engineering has such a prestigious reputation. The school will provide me with all the resources I need. I have always wanted to come to Penn since I was a child. Coming to Penn is like dream come true. It is very convenient to travel in Philadelphia because everything is in walking distance and the transportation can take me to anywhere. It's also very close to New York City but it is also not too crowded. The school provides you with diverse courses options. I can develop my own interest and I can always find a class that fits my interest. And because of the resources from the Wharton School, I can gain business knowledge as well. The strong alumni network makes me feel like in a big family. People help each other and learn from each other.

More than 250 years ago, Benjamin Franklin, founder of the University of Pennsylvania, envisioned an academic institution where classical learning would be united with a sound practical education in the arts and sciences. In Ben's own words, students ought to receive everything that is practical and everything that is ornamental. Today Penn, the oldest university in the nation, is fulfilling that vision by preparing students for a technological world, a world where leadership goes to those who have learned how to combine the practical and the ornamental.
