WG26 Welcome to Wharton
Friday, January 26th – Saturday, January 27th
You’re one step closer to joining the Wharton community! Join us in Philadelphia to engage with current students and staff through in-depth dialogue to help you get the best impression of life at Wharton. In addition, you will be able to meet other admitted students so you can start building relationships with your future classmates. This event provides a wide array of sessions to understand what two years at Wharton will provide.
Thursday, January 25 (OPTIONAL EVENT)
If you’re a Philadelphia local or arriving a day early for Welcome to Wharton, please join us for Pub! Pub is a Wharton tradition where the Wharton community gathers every Thursday for Happy Hour with an open beer & wine bar, and pub-fare food.
The theme for the week is Rainbow Pub! This is one of the most anticipated Pub’s of the year, with drag performances by some of Wharton’s favorite professors and administrators. Rainbow Pub brings together the entire student body to show that Wharton is a welcoming and accepting place of all people, including the LGBTQ+ community.
