University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia
(4.6/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Tour University of Pennsylvania to see the largest of the Ivy League universities and arguably the oldest university in the United States. The school combines an intimate charm with plenty of opportunities for exploring. Founded by Benjamin Franklin, the campus boasts one of the world's best archaeology museums--a testament to its leadership in that field in the 19th and 20th centuries. Catch a football or basketball game if the season's right, tour the auditorium to see its incredible interior design, take in the campus architecture, or stop at the performing arts venue. Though in the heart of the city, the university retains a countryside feel, with many walking trails and a botanical garden. All the same, the urban setting offers convenient proximity to transportation and restaurants.

  • This reality makes you fall and makes you experience the true idea of American University. The campus is really nice and quaint, with all the various buildings for study and with all houses for various confraternities. Really impressive a walk inside.
