Cohorts

From the moment you arrive at Penn, the Wharton cohort system will provide you with a supportive community of students.

Cohort LeadersIn June, you will be assigned to one of nine cohorts of approximately 60 students. During your freshman year, your cohort will be led by a sophomore cohort director, who will plan activities and help your cohort grow into a strong network of friendship and support.

As a freshman, you will take Wharton 101 with your cohort in the fall semester and you will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of fun cohort events, including the Amazing Cohort Race (a campus-wide scavenger hunt), the Winter Whartonland gingerbread house competition, and much more.

In addition to your cohort director, you will have the opportunity to be paired with a cohort mentor, an upperclassman who will serve as a peer mentor and friend.
