A pod is a small and consistent group of students who associate with each other based on agreed upon, shared practices. By forming a pod, you share a responsibility for each other’s safety, along with the safety of our greater Penn community, and agree to hold yourselves and each other accountable to this agreement. Learn more about forming, and the responsibilities of belonging to, pods.
