University of Pennsylvania Collection

In May, the University unveiled a new line of Penn-branded merchandise under the University of Pennsylvania Collection. Most of the merchandise reflects a partnership between Business Services and various campus organizations, which provided content or inspiration for the design. The present line of Collection items includes:

  • Silk scarves and ties inspired by items in the University Museum of Archeology and Anthropology's Roman and Etruscan exhibits
  • Hand-crafted reproductions of ancient medical and legal tablets from the University Museum's collection
  • A selection of full-color framed prints of various campus scenes
  • Two note card assortments reflecting images of the campus and of the Morris Arboretum

Coming soon is a line of t-shirts and sweatshirts that will highlight unique campus events and traditions such as Hey Day.

All of the items in the current Collection line are available for sale at and in the Penn Bookstore. In addition, the University Museum-related items are for sale in the Museum gift shop and the note cards are sold at the Morris Arboretum. University affiliates who wish to purchase note cards in large quantities may e-mail
