A Day in the Life of Penn

Just before sunrise on Nov. 14, the day's first baby was born at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Around midnight, a Penn Law student closed the day studying, surrounded by books.

In between, morning commuters streamed across the South Street Bridge in cars and on bikes, fourth-year Penn Vet students wheeled a canine patient out of the surgery suite, and Penn Jazz rehearsed in Houston Hall—all against a background of a crisp, picture-perfect fall day.

These are just a handful of the moments, big and small, captured in the second iteration of the University-wide photo project, "A Day in the Life of Penn." The endeavor, led by the Office of University Communications, tapped student, faculty, and staff photographers to document all aspects of campus life from sunrise to well after sunset on one day: Nov. 14, 2012.
