We asked, and you sent! Yup, spring is well upon us, and luckily for the Penn community, some of you have a good eye for spotting how beautiful campus is at this time of year. We’ve highlighted just a sampling of our favorites (choosing was very hard, mind you) so you can enjoy them as much as we do.
If you’d like us to feature your lovely spring photos, tweet your pics at us throughout the day and we’ll retweet you. In the meantime, put away your phone and stop looking at your feet on your walk to class– you’re missing more than you know!
Yesterday we asked for your pretty fall photos, and here’s what we’ve got! These shots prove that campus is just as beautiful as anywhere else, and probably more so. Thanks to everyone who helped out!
Missed your chance to send pictures in? Tweet them at us and we’ll retweet you all day. And if you’ve still got a hankerin’ for Penn in her prime (looking at you, abroad kids) ogle the Office of University Communication’s collection here.
We live on a college campus in autumn. This is one of the prettiest places in the world to be right now; fall at Penn is where admissions brochures come from, and what people think of when they imagine “Ivy League.” Naturally, our newsfeeds have been more than a little cluttered by muploads and photographers alike posting homages to the season. We want to see those pictures!
Send us your beautiful foliage, your waning sunlight or your “people playing frisbee in the Quad without a care in the world” and we’ll put them up on UTB for the world to see. You can tweet them at us, tag our Facebook page in your pics or use good old-fashioned email. Just send them quick— soon it will be too cold to operate your shutter button without freezing a finger off.
Some of our graduating pals sent over photo evidence of the highlights of tonight’s College of Arts and Sciences graduation. Enjoy.
The correct spelling would be “lose.” Thanks for helping us and our parents feel like the $200k was really worth it, Penn.
Absurdity ensues, after the jump.

If for some reason, you need to have film developed, tipster Lauren Lipsay tells us the CVS on 40th and Walnut in the Radian is no longer processing film. We wonder if they’ll still print digital photos.
We’ve seen a lot of weird animals around the hood. Pink dogs, horses with cowboys on ‘em. But this couple we noticed on Locust Walk bridge was strutting in style. Closeups of the fine furry folks after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
