Connor

Freshman · Finance / Banking

Every day I meet someone different who inspires me or shows me a different way to view the world. Sure, Penn has world-class faculty and fancy buildings, but the students are what make the University special. Even though I'm studying business, I took a class this semester on public health and spent my spring break doing community health research in a rural region of Latin America. At Penn, there is never a shortage of classes, speakers, and events to feed your curiosity.
