Here's a Toast to Dear Old Penn

January 13, 2017

I went to a college alumni event last night. As always, I’m amazed at how down-to-earth Penn graduates are. On TV and in the movies, Ivy Leaguers are portrayed as condescending jerks—to the point where I was nervous about going to my first alumni event, even though the people I went to Penn with were completely non-jerky.

So—I don’t know about the other Ivy schools, but Penn—I’m pretty impressed that you let regular folks in, and that your graduates are genuine, approachable people. Keep up the good work.

(The title of the post is a line from a Penn song.)
