Welcome to the Weingarten Center


The start of an academic year symbolizes optimism, energy, promise. Over the past 18 months, we have experienced distinct journeys as we grappled with the unexpected effects of the pandemic. From learning and working remotely to adapting to new social norms, a consistent message surfaces regardless of the situation: We can adapt and accomplish our goals.

I realize that these initial days of the fall semester are a mixture of happiness, excitement, and anticipation; however, take the time to think about new skills acquired during the remote learning period. How can you adapt these strategies into the in-person learning experience?

Share your insights and questions with peers and learning specialists through our academic workshops and Calculus Start-Up sponsored by Tutoring Services. Students seeking individual appointments with a Learning Specialist or Disability Advisor should not hesitate in scheduling one through MyWLRC. Finally, the Weingarten Center will be holding Open House events for freshmen and sophomores on Friday, September 3rd.

Welcome to the Penn community! We look forward to being part of your Penn journey.
