If I am accepted to Penn, I am strongly considering going there since it is my first choice. However, I often wonder if I would really fit in and feel safe at Penn. At times, I know I would but other times, I'm doubtful. When I went on a tour of the school, when I spent the day shadowing a current student, and every time I go to games with my family at the Palestra, I feel safe and secure. When I'm on campus, I feel a sense of familiarity. I feel safe, but s that just because my family and friends are there with me?
How safe do you, current Penn students, feel at Penn? Not sure if any of you can relate to me but I'm coming from the suburbs in PA, and a small private college-prep school on the main line.
I just think that hearing some current students' on safety at Penn would be helpful as I choose the college I want to attend next year.
