Penn Graduate Student Center

Graduate & Professional New Student Orientation

Volunteer at New Grad Student Orientation

Remember when you were a new grad student? There was so much to figure out! Now that you know your way around, volunteer to help incoming graduate and professional students discover Penn and Philadelphia during the Graduate Student Center's NSO!

If you volunteer to lead a tour, we will provide you with a script. But some prior knowledge of Philadelphia is helpful. If you sign up for the Gnome Hunt, you'll receive instructions in advance. And all volunteers receive a free gift!
