Tear Down This (Cardboard) Wall!


When we're not busy blogging (we are always blogging) we are sometimes kind of nerdy. So when we realized that today was the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, we thought that was pretty cool. But we had no idea how awesome it was going to be until we got this email from the International Relations department. They're knocking down a wall!

It's true. Today on College Green from 10 until 5 you can fashion your own Checkpoint Charlie by adding a spraypainted message or colorful design (we're drawing a button) to a big ole' commemoration of the Berlin Wall. The best part? It gets knocked down at 5, and the evils of Penn Communism will be defeated forever. Or something. Regardless, it looks like a great time and a fun opportunity to use spraypaint and celebrate the freedom of expression, two things we are decidedly in favor of.
