New Student Orientation & Academic Initiatives
NSO 2022 begins on Wednesday, August 24 and concludes on Monday, August 29. Feel free to contact our office with any questions that you might have at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are so excited to welcome our new students and the Class of 2026! Check the "Getting Started" tab for some helpful information like the Penn10. On Monday, August 1, Thrive at Penn (TAP) modules will be live on Canvas, and PHINS orientation leaders will soon be in contact.
Second-Year Orientation (SYO) is scheduled for Sunday, August 28 to Friday, September 2. In addition, throughout the academic year, we are committed to the development of Penn’s Second-Year Experience (SYE) program to continue to foster both the individual student and the overall community of second year students.
Faculty and Staff
Preceptorials are non-credit seminars led by faculty and distinguished guest lecturers, available to Penn undergraduates in Fall and Spring Semesters to supplement the curriculum. The program is designed to foster an interactive, conversational experience with no grades or tests. The goal of preceptorials is learning for learning's sake in an experience often outside the classroom.
Penn Families and Community Members
Welcome Penn Class of 2026 Parents, Guardians, and Families! The resource page for Penn Parents and Families highlights resources that are helpful, such as the billing schedule and the different services offered by the Division of Public Safety to help aid your transition, as well as your student's transition, to the Penn Community.
