The fourth oldest institution of “higher education” in the United States was also the first university to hold both undergraduate classes and graduate classes. When Benjamin Franklin founded the school, he focused on creating classes around commerce and public service. This model resulted in this university being the first of its kind as one of the first academic institutions to follow a multidisciplinary model pioneered by several European universities, concentrating multiple “faculties” (such as theology, classics, medicine) into one institution.

Today we present a crown jewel. A UPenn Blue Corduroy snapback cap featuring the school name on the front with the wings clear and the bill clear. Get yours at
