Well, it may be a quiet day here in Penndesign's admission's office but it is definitely not a quiet day on campus! Today is not only Penn's annual 'Hey Day' but it is also the first day of Penn Relays! Campus is full of people and great energy! must be finals time because Meyerson Hall's galleries and hallways are bustling with students, critics, faculty and amazing work. Talk about great energy! Hang in there students- today is the last day of classes,woohoo!

There is a pop-up exhibition being shown in the upper and lower gallery today until 5pm featuring student work from the 'Printmaking and Making Landscape' workshop this semester.

Our campus has just been accredited as an Arboretum! 

The admissions team has known for quite a while how lucky we are to work on such a beautiful and green campus, and apparently ArbNet agrees!

To celebrate this year's Earth Day Landscape Architecture's Richard Weller will present his Atlas for the End of the World, which is a collection of maps that survey land use and urban growth.

We here at PennDesign have been absolutely LOVING this spring weather! We have a great week ahead of us including the City Planning Poetics event that is scheduled to run from April 21-21st.
