Because we all want to know…
Favorite thing about Philly: Students are everywhere, and many amazing medical schools and research centers in one place.
Favorite SEPTA experience: Spotting SEPTA’s unfortunate slogan after waiting more than 45 minutes for the trolley : ‘We’re Getting There’
Something I learned in the last week: The first illegal immigrants in America were the Quakers, banned in 1656; followed by Jews and Catholics in the 1700s.
Funniest PHC memory: PHC pickup lines
