Penn takes pride in its ability to offer new and innovative programming to its alumni. These programs provide alumni with the opportunity to continue their education and discuss current events with engaged and intellectual professionals.
As a an alumna of a small liberal arts college, I’m always impressed by the amount of education and learning opportunities that Penn offers to its alumni. As a staff member at Penn, I’m happy to be able to take part in some of what Penn has to offer. I regularly comb through the Penn Current and Daily Pennsylvanian’s list of upcoming events to see what’s going on at Penn. In the next few months, there several fantastic programs:
- Lying Your Way to Truth, September 28 at 11:55 a.m.
- 50 Jobs in 50 States, October 4 at 6:00 p.m.
- Kelly Writers House: A Lunch Talk with Karen Heller, October 17 at 12:00 p.m.
- Imagine Africa Lecture Series: Africa and the World, October 20 at 6:00 p.m.
- Wharton Leadership Lectures: Honorable Eric Cantor, U.S. House Majority Leader, October 21 at 4:30 p.m.
*Please note that some of the above events are only open to certain alumni or require registration.
Of course, this is only a snippet of what’s happening at Penn. Next time you’re on in Philadelphia, continue your Penn education with an on campus lecture.
And be sure to meet your fellow alumni at Homecoming (November 4 – 6) featuring Arts and Culture at Penn. Homecoming offers several opportunities for personal enrichment and networking with fellow alumni. For more information or to register, visit www.alumni.upenn.edu/homecoming2011/.
