Wharton Connect

Student Life Fellows

Welcome to the Wharton community. As Student Life Fellows, our roles extend a bit beyond a warm welcome. We have elected to invest ourselves in developing personal relationships with the incoming MBA class, and we look to provide insights, mentorship, and advice through the lens of a second-year student. As an extension of the Student Life office, we are involved in a variety of student-led activities, and we seek to foster a cohesive cluster, as well as a broader MBA community that enjoys being at Wharton as much as we do.

We are excited about meeting and getting to know each one of you this year!
