Penn History

This virtual web tour was created by Steven Morgan Friedman C '98.

The undergraduate student body in January 1831 numbered only 80, most of whom are residents of Philadelphia. Only two seniors are from outside Philadelphia; only eight states other than Pennsylvania are represented in the entire undergraduate student body.

The College prides itself on providing a small, personal education to all our students: the class of 1831 has 21 students. This list of seniors is transcribed directly from the University Catalogue of January 1831.
