Living our Golden Days at UPenn!

We’re making the most of another great week here at Penn Summer Discovery! With our Academy and Penn Prep A students departing on Saturday, the staff is offering plenty of amazing opportunities for the students. This week, the students have been able to go bowling, visit a local Laser Tag, and participate in a Lip Sync Battle!

Today, Eric Furda, the Dean of Admissions for the University of Pennsylvania, will be holding a talk with our students. This is an incredible opportunity for our students that is only offered to Summer Discovery. Dean Furda will not only offer advice on the application process, but he has offered to stay after his talk to answer personal questions that students may have about the process, their personal applications, and about the University of Pennsylvania in general. The students will also have a chance to participate in other incredible off campus events including a trip to the Museum of the American Revolution, The Philadelphia Art Museum, and more!

Tomorrow, July 20, the staff will be turning Rodin into “Disney in the Dorm!” There will be activities and events throughout the building to celebrate all that our students have accomplished during their time with us, and offer a chance for friends to have one final night of fun before departing the following morning. There will be plenty of snacks, Disney Trivia, Disney movies, Princess Pamper, A Royal Portrait Photo Booth and more! While we are always sad to say goodbye to our students, we know that the past three weeks have been full of incredible trips, lasting laughs, and amazing memories that our staff and students will treasure for years to come. Here’s to an exciting and safe departure for our Academy and Penn Prep A students, a safe and smooth arrival for our Penn Prep B students, and continuing our amazing summer with our Pre-College students!
