Penn to You

Never stop learning—it's an unofficial motto at Penn. In the classroom, in the community, and in the wider world, Penn people bring an intense intellectual curiosity to everything they do. A new program, Penn to You, is designed to bring Penn alumni, parents, and friends together for an evening of intellectual and social engagement. Each Penn to You event will feature one of Penn's 12 schools and will include conversation, presentations and panel discussions with select faculty.


 







Ancient Marvels: Timeless Fascination

The Penn Museum has been excavating in Egypt for well over a century–and the discoveries continue each year. Now, the Museum is revitalizing how we tell the story of ancient Egypt. Join us for a discussion of the Museum’s Egyptian excavations and discoveries, with a special look at how the Museum will make the ancient present in new galleries.
