Guidelines for Submission

Take photos of your campus life—or anything interesting on campus—on Friday, October 23.

Post the image to Instagram using the tag #PennDayinLife

Images must be posted from Midnight to Midnight on October 23.

A final display of "Day in the Life of Penn" images will be showcased on various Penn websites.

By posting using #PennDayinLife you agree to allow the Office of University Communications to use your images for various university purposes.

We'll be posting photos all day long on Penn's Instagram (@UofPenn), and we'll post the best of what we see from you to the University Tumblr. Follow along and show us your Day in the Life of Penn.
