Brunch and Play Date Series
One Saturday of each month we invite Penn students and post-docs to bring their kids to the Graduate Student Center at 3615 Locust Walk for food, crafts, and fun!
Being a parent and managing the demands of graduate school can be difficult for students, partners, and their families. This event will give you a chance to meet other Penn students with children to share experiences, find advice, and make new friends. Partners and children are always welcome.
