Hey Day: A Uniquely Penn Tradition

Following a tradition that reaches back to 1916, Penn juniors celebrated Hey Day 2012 on April 25, by donning red shirts, strutting along Locust Walk carrying canes, and biting into straw hats.

A celebration unique to Penn, Hey Day marks the “moving up” of juniors to the senior class. This year’s event began with a class picnic, followed by the traditional procession to College Hall.

Sick people refusing to be seen by a doctor?

“I don’t have medical coverage, I can’t go.” 

That’s what some people have said for far too long.  But, one organization works to get Philadelphians the health care that they need –- with or without insurance.
