How prevalent is the party scene/hookup culture at Penn? I'm more of an introvert and prefer serious relationships. I'm worried about feeling left out.
Definitely there if you want it, and absolutely not something you need to be involved in if you don't! It's big in certain circles on campus like Greek life, but there are tons of students who like you are also introverted and prefer other social activities. I'd say surround yourself with people who enjoy doing the same things as you, and you'll never feel left out :) serious relationships are more rare but definitely not uncommon and gets more common as people get older. Again, this probably depends on the social circle.
