In a recent report by the beauty and wellness website StyleSeat, Penn ranked No. 17 on the list of the most fashionable college campuses in the United States. 

The study, which analyzed over 6,000 geotagged locations of colleges and universities, positioned Philadelphia as a style hub, with several local universities securing spots in the top 25 most fashionable college campuses in the U.S. Schools were evaluated according to a "fashion score," which was derived by dividing the number of stylish outfits by the number of unstylish ones.

Penn received a fashion score of 3.78, securing its spot as one of the most fashionable campuses nationwide. Penn was also ranked No. 2 in the Top 10 Campuses for Glamorous Photoshoots list with an A+ ranking after Louisiana State University.

Princeton University secured the No. 7 spot on the Most Fashionable list with a score of 5.19. Despite falling short of the top spot, Princeton earned the highest letter grade, an A+, for the school's commitment to dressing well. Temple also performed above average in this category, earning a B+.

Only two of the eight Ivy League institutions, Dartmouth College and Brown University, did not place within the top 20 positions.

While San Diego State University claimed the No. 1 spot with a fashion score of 7.10, Temple University followed not far behind, representing Philadelphia as the second most fashionable college campus with a score of 7.09. 

However, only some universities in the Pennsylvania region were ranked on the Most Fashionable List. With a score of 1.85, Penn State found itself at the twelfth spot on the Least Fashionable College Campus list, which was topped by the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

StyleSeat's report also evaluated how cozy students dressed on campus, where Temple received a letter grade of B. The University of Minnesota, Twin Cities claimed the No. 1 title for its "snug, warm loungewear."
