When it comes time to choose courses for the upcoming semester, Penn undergraduates have to be cognizant of their respective schools’ graduation requirements. The College of Arts and Sciences, the Wharton School, the School of Engineering and Applied Science, and the School of Nursing each have their own set of requirements for their respective student bodies.

This lack of options may drive students to choose classes they are less passionate about, even if they are interested in the general topic of the requirement.

This is why many students choose not to sign up for dining plans after their first year.
