At a campaign rally in Hershey, Pa. on Friday, Donald Trump said that he believed he would do well in Philadelphia because he went to school at Penn.

"I really believe I'm gonna do well in Philadelphia because that's where I went to school specifically," Trump said. "I love Philadelphia. Don't disappoint us Philadelphia. We'll do great things for Philadelphia."

This is not the first time in his presidential campaign that the 1968 Wharton graduate has mentioned his Penn education. "I went to the Wharton School of Finance," Trump repeatedly said at a July 11, 2015 speech in Phoenix, Ariz. "I'm, like, a really smart person."

While his donations to the school were largely unrecognized, a recent Daily Pennsylvanian investigation found that Trump may have donated at least $1,480,500 to Penn.

Penn students, however, have not been so quick to support Trump. Several Republicans at Penn have stated they do not support him, while the Penn chapter of College Republicans nearly denounced the candidate.

With four days until polls open in Pennsylvania, it remains to be seen how well Trump will do in Philadelphia.
