Internships in Philadelphia: Typical Day

Summer Intern at Julian Krinksy Career Builders: Summer Internships in Philadelphia camp

Living on Campus at the University of Pennsylvania

In addition to holding an exclusive Krinsky internship position, you’ll live at the University of Pennsylvania, in The Quad, Penn’s famous complex of residence halls. You’ll eat in Penn’s main dining facilities, and play sports and enjoy social activities in your free time.

You’ll also enjoy a wide selection of recreational activities, off-campus excursions and weekend trips to regional attractions such as theme parks, New York City, Washington, D.C., the beach in Ocean City, N.J., and Paintball in the Pocono Mountains. Here’s a typical day:

7:00 A.M. — Wake-up
You’ll be living on the Penn campus in the Quadrangle.

7:30 — Breakfast
Use your Summer Penn Card and start your day with breakfast on campus at 1920 Commons, Starbucks or 3C.

8:30 — Go to Work
We’ll provide convenient transportation to your internship.

Midday — Lunch
You’ll decide what to do for lunch. Brown-bag it, join your coworkers at a nearby restaurant, or find a comfortable spot to enjoy some take-out. Lunch is on you, so budget accordingly.

5:00–5:45 — Return to Penn
Now it’s your time — why not go for a run or hit the gym? Maybe take it easy and socialize, spend some time online or relax with something to read.

6:00 — Dinner
Most evenings we dine together at 1920 Commons. Each Friday is payday and we’ll wrap up the work week with dinner at a local restaurant.

7:00 — Evening Activities
Every evening there are scheduled activities to interest everyone, whether you’d rather stay on campus or go downtown.
