Let us be the first to welcome you to Wharton!
We know this is just as an exciting time for you as it is for your student. At the same time, you may be leaving family, friends, a job or even your home country to come to Philadelphia for the next two years. The Wharton Partners Club was created to provide a tight-knit community of friends and support during this new chapter of your lives. As partners of Wharton students, we all share the same experiences, excitement and emotions that come with adjusting to a new routine.
The Wharton Partners Club is a networking and social organization made up of first- and second-year partners whose significant others are students at Wharton. The term “partner” includes any male or female dating, engaged or married to a Wharton student.
We pride ourselves on being one of the most active business school partner clubs in the nation! Each month we organize social, cultural and volunteer activities for our members. The Club is run entirely by Wharton partners, so we plan events our current members are interested in attending. With happy hours, day trips, cooking classes, sporting events, group dinners and seasonal parties, there’s always something on the calendar to look forward to. To see photos of some of our past events, be sure to visit our Events page. We also have an active online community for partners to plan impromptu events, ask questions and share their favorite Philly finds. We invite you to visit our Class of 2013 and Class of 2014 Wharton Partners Club groups on Facebook.
We welcome moms and dads to bring their little ones to partner events! Please note there’s also a Wharton Kids Club that provides activities such as play groups, family outings and parents’ nights out.
The Wharton Partners Club is an official club under The Wharton Graduate Association (WGA), the student government organization of the Wharton School’s graduate program. For more information about joining, please visit the Membership page.
Why Cohort P?
Upon arriving to Wharton, first-year students are divided into four groups called Clusters. These groups are then divided into 60 – 70 students known as Cohorts, ranging from letters A – L. The Partners Club is affectionately known as the honorary Cohort P – and if you ask us, there’s no better cohort at Wharton!
