Noah Silver’s (C '21) Penn career promised to be unique the moment it started. Accepted when he was 16 years old to Penn’s Class of 2015, he decided to take a break from school before starting his first year of college.

College students are no strangers to roommate contracts, norms, and "house meetings." Normally the topics are bedtimes, guests, music volume, drinking and smoking, or chores.

Even though many students decided to come back to Philly this fall, it is undeniable that the on–campus experience is drastically different.

In addition to the effects of the pandemic, the United States has been facing a number of major social challenges.

This summer was undeniably a great challenge for everyone; however, many people found an opportunity within the abundant time to explore unique interests or begin new passion projects.
