  • "Staying connected to GSE and to Penn has so many benefits, but at the most basic level, I think it is important to stay connected to continue to construct, advance, and enhance your own personal and social identity. Penn in many ways can and does define who you are to the outside world, and that identity can help your career, expand your network, and advance your presence in the world."
