Surprise, Surprise: Penn Students Like Sex

As if Penn hasn't been ranked enough recently, we now have a new trophy to put in the case. According to Fiesta Frog, Penn is the 50th "Easiest College To Get Laid At." We're also the only school in the Ivy League that was rank-worthy, so at least our need to play up our status appears to be getting us in bed.

In terms of other colleges ranked, our neighbors at Temple came in at #33, while our unfortunate, similar-name bearing friends at Penn State placed at #16, which also happens to be the age of consent in PA. Coincidence? We think not.

"A Day In The Life Of Penn" Is Finally Here!

Now that the excitement of the new semester is long gone and you’ve settled into your regular routine of eating Wawa chicken tenders as a legitimate meal, the time has finally arrived. Tomorrow, Penn wants us to pretend that we can actually function like studious, mature adults who take care of themselves and engage in healthy relationships

We know there’s plenty of pressure to impress prospective students after Penn’s major academic setbacks this year, so skip your midday stress-cry and wash those eye bags away, because we’re ready to kill it for "A Day In The Life Of Penn." Don’t fret when you drunkenly embarrass yourself and put Ben Franklin to shame— as far as Penn knows, that didn't really happen! Instead, Instagram a gloriously festive fall tree outside of Van Pelt while you study for your Sanskrit 460 midterm. Skipping your DRL lecture to watch Netflix? Not tomorrow, you’re not! Send in a picture of your class pennant hanging on your dorm room wall, since you’re just bursting with pride for the Red and the Blue and really want everyone who walks into your room to know that, yes! You, too, go to an Ivy! 

Tomorrow, think less this, and more this. And if you do happen to snap a nice, possibly pornographic pic in the near future—well, you know what to do.

Penn Porn: Autumnal Edition, Vol. 2

If you've been a bit of a curmudgeon for no apparent reason in the last few weeks, you're not a bitch. You're just another poor soul suffering from in-between seasonal affective disorder. Ordering a toasty PSL when it's 72 degrees outside and always being inappropriately dressed for the weather no matter what you wear can really get to you.

Well, the temperature hit 70 for the last time for a very long time this week, which means it's finally basically  fall! Anyone who's been to campus around this time knows that autumn is what Penn was made for-- actually though. Our main administrative building is literally orange. In celebration, we're bringing back Penn Porn! Send your sexiest seasonal sightings to tips@underthebutton.com by next Sunday 10/26 and we'll post the best.

New Drinking Device Solves A Problem That Didn't Need Solving

A recent invention from an ambitious bro has proven that frat life isn’t all about getting crunk; it’s about getting crunk efficiently. Ah, classic Penn. 

The snapshotr (which honestly just makes us think of Snapchat) brings the shot game to a whole new level. To follow a shot with a chaser back in the Dark Ages, you had to take time out of your packed drinking schedule to pour two different liquids into two different cups. What a waste! Now the process is much simpler. You just pour, unlock, lock, pour, drink, and then unlock while drinking. Say that five times fast! Alas, thanks to this enlightened solution, we can already feel time in our Google Calendars freeing up.

Explore Every One Of Qdoba's Extra For Free

In Qdoba's words, "extras are no longer extra". FINALLY they did what they should have done years ago: make their guacamole, queso and fajita veggies free with any purchased entree

It appears that their exorbitant generosity and willingness to stay open late suggest only one thing: the quest to win over loyal Chipotle-goers is on. That's still pretty unlikely, but then again, when you're ballin' on a budget, free queso sounds pretty damn good.

The Great College/High School Snafu of 2014

Ah, the classic listserv mix-up. It's really a tale as old as time. Sometimes you're fooled into giving your social security number to hundreds of people, other times basic internet privacy somehow just escapes your grasp. Humiliating, but it happens to the best of us.  

Earlier this week, an anonymous Penn professor accidentally forwarded an announcement for an event at Drexel CLEARLY geared towards high school students to a whole undergrad listserv. Though the Student TV Day does sound pretty ballin', even the quickest of read-throughs shows that this event was solely intended for the under 18 set. What's funnier than the unintended mistake, however, is her all-business follow-up. Oh unnamed Penn prof, we'll always love you, but know that we definitely won't get a waiver signed by our parents.
