We encourage you to step outside your comfort zone, pursue relentless experimentation and explore your immense potential.


As part of her Summer Scholars research, communication studies major Lenora Thomas ’23 will examine how COVID-19 isolation has forever changed the outlook of individuals in her close-knit west Philadelphia community. Ultimately, Thomas will produce a multimedia anthology of poetry that shares individual pandemic experiences.
