COMMUNITY
    • PEEP (9/29-10/5) is an excellent opportunity for high school seniors to participate in pre-college programming designed for students who are from low-income backgrounds and/or who will be the first in their families to graduate from a 4-year college. The program will provide practical advice that students can use to strengthen their applications to highly selective colleges and universities.
    • PIF (9/30-10/5) is a very exciting program for high school seniors who wish to explore and celebrate cultural communities that have been historically underrepresented at highly selective universities. This program will underscore the extensive cultural engagement opportunities infused throughout the intellectual and social experience at Penn.
