With graduation fast approaching, we’re taking the month of April to honor our M&T Class of 2015 with a few Senior Spotlights. This installment comes to us from Jackie Chow about some of her favorites at Penn and in Philadelphia.
My favorite memory in the M&T experience is definitely the impromptu skating trip that happened during freshman year. Some of my favorite people at Penn come from the M&T Program and the community as a whole is super supportive, including all the advisors. My favorite spot on campus is definitely the M&T office! But because that answer is a little obvious, other places I really like include the fountain area in Hill Pavilion, the Civic House and the booths in Rodin.
On campus, I’m involved in Social Impact Consulting, Alpha Phi Omega (an all gender service fraternity), and Weiss Tech House’s Community Relations Committee. Some of my favorite classes include MGMT 235: Entrepreneurship and Innovation, BE 400: Clinical Preceptorship (where I got to do a one semester engineering project improving simulation men that are used for ACLS), and BE 470: Medical Devices (where we’re building a cool sleep diagnostic device).
My favorite part of Philadelphia at large has recently been the Spruce Street Harbor Park. It’s really awesome in the summer. I especially like the hammocks that are available, and it’s close enough to Old City that I often visit two places at once!
