Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • Bring a bike, especially if you'll have lots of classes in DRL and Huntsman.
  • Computers are better when portable.
  • Do everything in your power to live in the quad! Apply for residential programs, get doctor's notes, just make sure you live in the quad as a freshman.
  • Do not let your high school senioritis follow you when you get here. You will jump right into hard academics.
  • Get a random roommate freshman year.
  • Get the smallest meal plan offered.
  • Have as much fun as possible during Freshmen Orientation.
  • Skip the "Penn Reading Project."
  • You don't need half the things you want to bring.
  • You have just as little life experience as everyone else, so don't worry if you don't know all the lingo or if you're not the beer drinking champ of your high school. Just show up, talk to people, and have a good time. Take every class seriously, but don't stress out.
