Penn engineering has entirely changed the way I view school. Never have I had such dedicated professors that genuinely wanted to help me understand the material. If you're passionate about a subject the professors will do everything in their power to nurture it and research opportunities are plentiful. The class selection is plentiful and you end up having too many great courses to choose from. (A great problem!)

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.
