With lectures, labs, and clinicals, it’s hard to image there’s time for anything else, yet our students are some of the most active outside the classroom as in. They participate in Penn’s Division I athletics, lead and participate in student groups at Nursing and across campus, develop community initiatives, and volunteer throughout Philadelphia and beyond.
Support when you need it
From your first day as a Penn Nursing student until you cross the stage at graduation, the Office of Student Services is here to support you through professional development programs, advising services, and simply being here when you need a hand.
You’ll join a tight-knit community of students who support each other while here, and when they leave, transform those connections into a strong professional network and lifelong friendships.

The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) is a primary source of information and advice for students regarding campus co-curricular opportunities and resources. OSA advises and helps administer student activities and governance, the PENNacle pre-orientation program, University Life leadership training programs, and major campus-wide special events, including Family Weekend, Homecoming, Spring Fling, Hey Day, and Ivy Day.
Established in 2001, the Graduate Student Center provides services to support the unique needs of graduate and professional students at Penn and in Philadelphia. The center creates intellectual, social, and professional development programs to bring together the wide range of graduate and professional students at Penn for cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural exchanges. Located in the heart of campus at 3615 Locust Walk, the center includes a lounge, computer lab, and meeting space – and free coffee if you bring your own mug!
Penn Nursing strives to foster a community of mutual support and leadership among its students. We offer a variety of programs and leadership opportunities for students to participate in.
By connecting with fellow students, faculty and alumni outside of the classroom, students explore and celebrate our community’s diversity, develop a broad skill set to complement and enhance their academic experience here at Penn, and strengthen their professional network through lifelong friendships.
