Student Stories

Erin Healy

School of Arts and Sciences, Bachelor of Arts in Classical Studies ‘12

"After graduating and working for a few years, I decided I still had some unfinished academic business. Penn was the easiest choice to come back to school—I knew the campus, the people and what to expect. The Penn Alumni Program gave me the opportunity to completely reroute my professional career. I am starting a PhD program in physics this fall at Princeton."

Jeffrey Moore

Swarthmore College, Bachelor of Arts in Neuroscience ‘15

"As a graduate of a Liberal Arts College on the path of reassessing my options, Penn's post-bacc program gave me the opportunity to select from a wide range of courses to bolster my background, while offering the resources of a large research university. Penn's relationship with the Quaker Consortium made for a painless application process and allowed me easy access to friends and connections that I had made in the Philadelphia area over my years as an undergraduate."

Sage Rush

Clinical Research Manager, University of Pennsylvania Neuropsychiatry Program

“If there is any skill or topic you’ve always wanted to learn about, the Penn Alumni Program is a great opportunity. My goal right now is to become fluent in French, but every time registration rolls around I do like to browse. There are so many classes you can choose from in art, language, and science—really, the options are endless.”
