Beyond the MBA Classroom: Walnut Walk Bar Crawl at Wharton

When you select an MBA program, you are not just choosing your learning environment, but are also committing to becoming part of a community. Each Thursday, we offer a window into life “beyond the MBA classroom” at a top business school.

Walnut Walk is an annual bar crawl held in the fall for Wharton first-year students that typically involves stops at bars that line the eponymous Walnut Street from Center City to Old City. The twist is that the required attire for both men and women is “business” (e.g., jacket and tie for men, jacket and lingerie/slip for women) on top and “party” (e.g., boxer shorts for men, lingerie/slip/boxers for women) on the bottom.
