An extension of the Office of Student Life, Student Life Fellows shape and enrich student life, and support you through the lens of a second-year student – providing insights, mentorship, and advice.

How to Schedule an Appointment

Make an appointment to chat with your SLF by emailing them directly. Don’t know who your assigned SLF is? Contact us: MBAStudentLife@wharton.upenn.edu

You’re also free to meet with any of the other 51 SLFs across the four clusters. They’re here because they want to connect with you.

We encourage you to meet with your assigned SLF early in your two-year journey. Many students say they could have saved a lot of time with this one simple step. After all, these students were in your position just 12 short months ago. They can share tips and tricks they’ve picked up along the way.

Interested in becoming an SLF? The group is formed from rising second-year MBAs. The application process starts in November of your first year with interviews and selection happening in early February. You will get an email from the Office of Student Life in the Fall notifying you of the recruiting process.
