||Talented high school juniors and seniors learn what it takes to meet the challenges of college life in Penn's Pre-College program. Students are offered a wide range of regular undergraduate courses in the arts and sciences. With certain exceptions (lecture/lab courses, microeconomics and intensive Spanish), students are encouraged to take two classes. In addition to their coursework, students meet new people, participate in stimulating discussions, special events and workshops and experience living independently, maybe for the first time. The confidence they gain helps them enjoy their freshman year at college, rather than find themselves overwhelmed with new choices and responsibilities.
