Hello everyone! Congratulations on your acceptance to Penn and welcome to the Class of 2027! My name is Yash Rajpal, and I am from Chester Springs, Pennsylvania, about an hour West of Philly. I am a freshman studying Bioengineering and Biophysics on the premedical track. I also plan to minor in Political Science and Chemistry! I am part of the VIPER program, meaning that I am a student in both the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. VIPER is a program that specializes students studying energy research and funds internships for its students for at least two summers. On campus, I am involved in the Daily Pennsylvanian (the DP), the Medical Emergency Response Team (MERT), and the Student Committee on Undergraduate Education (SCUE). I’ve had some experience in applying to clubs, reaching out to professors, and choosing specific classes, so feel free to reach out to me about anything from registration to general questions about Penn!
I am a sophomore student in VIPER majoring in Mathematics and Material Science, and on the VIPER Student Board. I grew up in State College, PA, where I hiked, kayaked, and skied. In high school, I ran track and played soccer and still run some pick up games here at Penn. My hobbies include baking, spikeball, and exploring Philadelphia.
Hello everyone, and welcome to Penn! I am Soyoon from Seoul, South Korea. I am a rising senior in the VIPER program majoring in Computer Engineering and Mathematics. I attended a boarding high school in South Korea, and now this is my third year being an OPA at Penn. I am currently pursuing a third summer research at Penn in the area of computer architecture. Outside of academics, I am a big music listener in a variety of genres including K-pop (there is so much more to it than BTS and Blackpink), just pop (I love ABBA and Queen), musicals (Phantom of the Opera forever), and some classical music. I am looking forward to getting to know you soon!
Hi guys! I’m Isa and I’m from Oakton, VA. I am a rising junior in VIPER studying Materials Science & Engineering and Chemistry. In my free time, I like to go get boba with my friends and find good restaurants in Philly to try out. Can’t wait to meet you in person in the fall!
