The Friday Five
Basic Page Sidebar Menu ISSS
Each Friday, we sit down for a (virtual) chat with one of our campus partners to discuss the many resources available to Penn's international student community. During these bite-sized conversations, our guests share their tips for staying healthy, keeping on top of coursework, locating a job/internship, and other topics. The purpose of these sessions is to give students practical advice on how to achieve success and well-being, both on campus and off, particularly in light of the challenges presented by the COVID-19 outbreak.
