Members of Penn’s Class of 2022 marched with canes along Locust Walk, wearing red shirts and flat-brimmed, faux-straw hats. Hey Day, a tradition that is unique to Penn, marks the moment when juniors “move up” to seniors, following the last day of spring classes. For the Class of 2022, Hey Day was held this fall due to the global pandemic’s impact on last year’s academic calendar.  From the steps of College Hall Penn President Amy Gutmann greeted the students and officially pronounced them seniors.
