Do you volunteer? Take this 3-minute survey and help a fellow Quaker!
A message from a fellow Quaker:

Hi, my name is Mindy and I'm taking a course on sociological research. I've decided to do my research project on something I enjoy doing: volunteering. That brought about my topic, volunteering among college students. That being said, I've created a simple 3-minute survey and am depending on people to spend just a moment to answer some quick questions. The survey is voluntary and completely confidential. Thanks for taking your time to complete it!

Host a prospective student during Quaker Days!
Greetings from the Penn Admissions Office!

Quaker Days is just a little over 3 weeks away and we still need hundreds of more hosts! We need your help to make this program successful, so be sure to host and show your red and blue pride!

We're looking for current students who live on campus and are interested in opening their homes to host prospective Quakers for the duration of Quaker Days and/or the Multicultural Scholars Program. As a host, your responsibility is to provide your guest(s) with a comfortable and safe place to sleep, and to be exemplary ambassadors of the university.

Quaker Days is an overnight experience for admitted students that showcases the breadth of Penn's academic, social, and cultural vitality. The program will run from Monday, April 13 - Wednesday, April 15. Students are also invited to participate in Quaker Days Multicultural Scholars Program (MSP), which is programming specifically geared towards students from historically underrepresented backgrounds. Quaker Days MSP will begin on Sunday, April 12 and then fold into the larger Quaker Days programming.

As a thank you, we will give you FREE PENN SWAG for volunteering and enter your name into our weekly raffle to win, various prizes, such as a GoPro camera and Beats headphones. The sooner you sign up, the more chances you have to win! Don't wait—sign up here, and play an important role in Quaker Days!
