Valentines Day is just the warm up for spring fever. To help you prepare, we researched the best smooching zones on campus, no easy task because so many were too shy to kiss and tell. For every attributable answer, we got three anonymous ones. So thanks to these bold Romeos and Juliets who, in the interest of promoting your love life, went public with where on campus to live out private lives.
Todd Leri, Engineering
The rooftop lounge of Harnwell House then you take them into the stairwell.
Hayong Kim, Engineering
Behind Goddard Labs, near the botanical garden and the pine trees. Other romantic places are the walkway behind Steiny-D, the bridge, the high-density stacks, the crawl space of Hill. . .
Not the Love sign. Some romantic things are the roof of DRL, the magically suspended lily pads in the fountain near Steiny-D and in the Bio Pond.
The Bio Pond, the basement of the quad and the roof of Logan.
Evie Dean, College
The courtyard between Vance and McNeil in the spring at night.
Well, I would definitely say under The Button and in the stacks of Van Pelt just kidding. Seriously, though, Penn isnt very romantic. Maybe on Hill field late at night alone. . .
Rachel Chu, College
The Fisher Fine Arts Library, the fountain behind Steinberg-
Dietrich when its filled Bucks Coffee, the Inn at Penn. . .
I guess the Bio Pond is somewhat romantic. And theres a Thai restaurant on Chestnut between 39th and 40th thats a great place for a date.
Vicky Sin, College
The Button just kidding! The Bio Pond, Smith Walk in the Engineering quad, in front of College Hall. . .
I guess the Bio Pond is a pretty romantic place.
There arent really any romantic places at Penn.
The benches and trees in front of the Fine Arts library.
Theres nothing really at Penn. I prefer Rittenhouse Square.
