A few pictures of campus
Rich and famous businessmen
We went to school with Donald Trump's kids. I saw The Donald Himself once on campus. And you know what else is funny? The big construction project on campus during my four years there was Huntsman Hall, the new Wharton building that alumnus Jon Huntsman had donated lots of money to build. I liked walking by the construction site during my time there knowing that a fellow member of the church was responsible for it. It was like my own version of BYU. And then at graduation, Jon Hunstman Jr., the current governor of Utah and also an alumnus of Penn, was one of the speakers. Someone sitting near me whispered to someone else, "Hey, did you know that guy is Mormon?" And she said, "Really?" And I just smiled to myself.
That big sprawling building in the background behind the sign and highway is the famous Philadelphia Museum of Art, the one where Rocky Balboa runs up the steps to that iconic song "Gonna Fly Now." I haven't seen the movie but it feels like I've seen that scene hundreds of times.
Another not-so-great picture. Sorry! This is the sprawling George Washington Bridge, one of the world's busiest bridges. It connects New Jersey and New York. I was apprehensive about crossing this bridge for awhile after 9/11, but it doesn't make me nervous anymore.
