Student Blogs

Meet Our Graduate Assistant team.

Each year, Admissions asks student representatives across programs to chronicle their experiences at Penn GSE. The blogs provide prospective applicants with a better sense of what life is like as a student at Penn GSE. Managing a full course load, an internship and a social life can be hectic, and topics range from how to navigate moving to a new city to securing a job at the end of their programs.

Follow their journeys throughout the year, as students generally update their blogs bi-monthly, so check back often. Our student blogs are not edited by Admissions, and opinions posted in each individual blog do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the university.
