Penn Says It’s Not Penn State… Rly!

UnderTheButton, a blog focused on Penn, picked up this helpful entry on that university’s FAQ.

Is Penn a state university? Where is Penn located?
No. The University of Pennsylvania is a private institution with no connection to Pennsylvania State University.

I’m glad Penn addressed that issue directly, I’d been worrying about it as of late, but there’s still one thing I’m wondering about. A professor told me today that Penn actually gets more government money than Penn State. Can anyone prove or disprove that statement?
