Student Life


“Because of the time restraints they face, students can end up being pulled in many different directions. Student Government aims to increase partnership across organizations and to build community throughout the School, the University, and globally.” – Former Club President, Britney Thornton, MSW’14

“Student Government strives to connect with other Schools across the University and encourage students to identify not only as SP2 students, but as Penn community members as well,” Thornton said.

The group focuses on student wellness, building relationships among student organizations, and developing partnerships across the University and within the Philadelphia community. “Student Government can play a big role in bringing students together and encouraging interaction with the global community,” explained Thornton.
