Warning: If you’re the type of person who doesn’t like to think about Christmas before Thanksgiving, you may not like this post. Because although there are still some brightly colored leaves on the trees on College Green and the holiday lights haven’t been fully illuminated on Locust Walk, we are already preparing for spring in Alumni Education!
Ready for a sneak peek of future webinars and events? Read on!

Just as they do for current students, Penn Alumni Office Hours provide a forum to ask in-depth questions and explore points of interest with professors outside of the classroom. These live, interactive webinars offer an exclusive opportunity to engage in dialogue with Penn professors without leaving your home or office. Next semester, we are featuring four of Penn’s dynamic faculty members, who will focus on a topic or issue of their choice.
