To say Penn is a Kozloff family tradition is a bit of an understatement. Lou Kozloff chose Penn for both undergraduate and medical school, just as his father did in the 1930s. It’s where Lou met his wife, Rene Chalfin Kozloff, NU’67, and where some 35 members of the extended Kozloff family would attend over the course of generations.
A Hall of Fame swimmer for Penn, Lou cites athletics as being an integral part of his undergraduate experience. As a dedicated alumnus, he is a longtime supporter of Penn Athletics and currently serves on the Swimming Sports Board. “I am so proud to have been a Penn athlete,” Lou says. “I want to pass that on to future student-athletes.”
To help ensure the enduring success of the program, Lou and Rene have included Penn Swimming in their planning, with a gift of a bequest. This generous gift qualifies Lou and Rene for membership in the University’s Harrison Society and allows them to begin a new tradition as charter members of the newly established Harrison chapter, the Penn Athletics Legacy Circle.
