    Firstly, most students are very busy at Penn and so this limits one's list of things to do for fun. However, there is never a moment of boredom at Penn if one would like to be active. The gym has an awesome fitness area with indoor basketball, racket ball, rock climbing, swimming, golf, and more. The fields are within walking distance for practically any outdoor sports. Intramural sports are common, along with every club imaginable. The dorm rooms have common rooms with TVs, pool tables, ping pong tables, libraries, and more.

    definitely take advantage of living in philadelphia. it's a beautiful city with lots of cultural options like the art museums, concerts, great clubs for dancing (once you turn 21). i recommend if you are an incoming freshman you join pennquest - an amazing pre-orientation program where you hike along the applachian trail for 4 days, meet other incoming freshman and learn all about being a student at penn - all while bonding in the woods. i did it my freshman year and was a leader my next three years. it was one of my favorite parts of penn. also, if you can study abroad for a semester your senior year - it greatly enhanced my education and understanding of the world. penn can be a bit of a privileged bubble at points so its important to remember and connect to the broader world and communities while a student.

    Since Penn is in the city of Philadelphia there is much to do on town as well as on campus, as they are within walking distance of each other. Also Greek life plays a role in the social scene of Penn.

    Although I spent a lot of time studying, I really enjoyed getting involved in Intramural sports. I joined a flag football team with my church for 4 years and I loved building quality relationships and learning how to play a sport. I really loved going to church and joining a small group that met weekly. Sometimes we would go down to center city to feed the homeless, which was something I always had a heart to do. There is just so much around, and there's a lot to say for a school that is within a big city yet maintains its ability to be enclosed on a campus.
