    Don't allow yourself be consumed by the competition. If you let it define you, then you've succumbed to made-up societal rules of how to get far in life. Take advantage of all the school has to offer, whether it be religious pursuit, greek life, academics, or sports to name a few areas that the University of Pennsylvania shines in.

    At Penn, the city of Philadelphia and all it has to offer is literally at your fingertips. I would highly recommend seizing as many opportunities as possible to explore the city! Get involved! Join clubs, be social, go out, have fun! Be yourself! Penn is a big enough school where you WILL find your group of friends. They might not be the first people you meet in NSO or your roommate (or they could be!) but you will find them.
