Residential Life At Penn From Emma

Posted by Jamie Calvario on Jun 6, 2014 12:00:00 PM

The thing that you would never know until you get to the camp is the residential experience. In this blog, I am going to share my experience living in the famous Quad of the University of Pennsylvania and how JKCP made this experience even better.


The residential life at the camp mimics that of a typical college co-ed corridor living experience. At the Quad, we lived in several different corridors and spread across five floors.

Wherever you are reading this blog post from, remember that you are not alone at a JKCP or UPenn Summer Camp. Last summer, when I was at the Wharton Sports Business Academy, I met the most diverse group of students, with various geographical, national, racial, education and political backgrounds. As an international student myself, I had the international student full package experience at WSBA.

Make Philadelphia the Priority on Your East Coast Journey

Walnut Street Shopping

When you think about your upcoming US East Coast trip, what are you most excited about? Let me guess… Philadelphia? Whats that – it’s not Philadelphia? The only question I have for you is, why not? 

Often times, when people are planning their trips to the East Coast, they highlight two cities nearby, but skip right over what is arguably the most important city to see. The natural response to this is, “but there’s so much more to see in New York and Washington,” but let me tell you how that is not the case.
