1)      It’s a chance to stir up some memories. As a new class of Penn students begin their fall semesters, memories are conjured up of our time at Penn and at Beta Rho:

Sweet, juicy fruit from University Square Farmers’ Market, Breaks on the lawn between classes with your brothers, Strolling down Locust Walk, you name it.

2)      You can cheer on the Quakers as they take on Princeton (Noon kickoff). Enjoy the cooler weather, some tailgating, and the homecoming game with your family or your brothers.

3)      You can check out some of the best new restaurants located near Penn. Here’s a few of the top picks out there:

2.4 miles from the university
This unique eatery features different food trucks each day in rotation. Enjoy fare from the food truck of the day, cold beer, and a few games of pool and Skee Ball.

Good Stuff Eatery
1.4 miles from the university
Chow down on some classic American food from Top Chef alum Spike Mendelsohn including burgers, slim cut fries, chili, milkshakes, and more.

Flat Iron

Not only do they serve $5 wings during games, but they make a burger served on a mac & cheese bun. Now that’s innovative.
