The Daily Pennsylvanian is pleased to present EventsAtPenn.com as a central place to find out about events on campus.
The site, funded by the Undergraduate Assembly and developed by PennApps Labs, launched Thursday. Event postings are sorted by categories, including performances, speaker events, sports and general body meetings, among others. Events with free admission or refreshments are also easily sortable.
In order to post events, students and campus groups must register as users. Registered users also get access to a list of events recommended by the DP.
Undergraduate Assembly President and College and Wharton senior Abe Sutton, who served as UA vice president during the planning stages of the project, said he is “really happy to be able to bring this to fruition.”
He said the support of former UA President Dan Bernick was significant to the successful completion of the site.
“Dan … thought it was very important to have a centralized place for students to find out about what’s going on on campus and for groups to promote their events,” Sutton said.
UA Secretary Pratyusha Gupta, a College sophomore, hopes that the site “will help students to embrace the diversity of Penn by attending different student groups’ meetings and performances.”
