Did You Know?

Pennsylvania Hall's namesake, a building that stood where the new residence hall now stands, was part of the University's "Acropolis Plan," which would have modeled the University after the Acropolis in Athens, Greece. The plan won a nationwide 1908 architecture competition but was never implemented.
