Editorial | Abolish the UA

Once the UA is voted down, the undergraduates could send about creating a new student government. At a convention open to all undergraduates, students could present ideas and possible structures for the new government.

Editorial | Endorsement of Gabe Delaney and Joshua Chilcote for UA President and VP

Furthermore, we wholly support Delaney’s commitment to changing the internal structure of the UA, which did not seem to be shared — certainly not to the same extent — by Kim. After the recent impeachment debacle, it’s clear that something needs to be improved internally, and we believe that Delaney’s plans to empower other UA members through a more horizontal structure will be crucial to making the necessary changes.

Editorial | Packing the Palestra

On Tuesday, Penn women’s basketball defeated four-time defending champion Princeton, 80-64, to win the Ivy League title, clinching its first NCAA Tournament berth in 10 years.

And now it’s time for the Penn community to celebrate the team’s accomplishments.

Since November, the Quakers have shown determination, responding to a 31-point loss to Princeton at the Palestra in January by winning 14 of their last 15 games and ending the Tigers reign atop of the Ancient Eight.

Editorial | UA: Undeniably absurd

It’s a shame that students are disenchanted with the UA. It’s also a shame that the UA does very little by way of visible action or effective communication with students.

Editorial | Minding the gap

Despite the abundance of degrees the committee members hold, however, there’s one glaring, crucial, inexcusable hole in this task force: a student voice. Indeed, on a committee responsible for assessing the state of mental health resources for students at Penn, there sit a whopping total of zero students.

Editorial | In Praise of PennApps

It’s not just the organizers [of PennApps] who make the event the success that it is, but also the students who set aside their entire weekend to participate in the event.

Have you or someone you know experienced mental health issues at Penn?

Help The Daily Pennsylvanian investigate mental health on campus.

Editorial | Uncapping CAPS funding

We hope that events as tragic as the ones that have transpired since winter break will not be necessary to convince the University to take action in the future and fund continued improvements.

Editorial | Impoverished at Penn, part one: the institutional issue

Just 12 percent of Penn students estimate that they come from a household making under 50,000 — less than the 13 percent who would estimate that their parents make over $450,000.

Editorial | Impoverished at Penn, part two: reconsidering culture

We’ve been less willing to look critically at aspects of Penn culture that create these social divisions and discuss actions we can all take to promote discussion about money at Penn.

Editorial | Group Study Reconsidered

We would like to tell the many students in an uproar over the injustice of “good study spaces” only being available to Wharton students to kindly calm down.

Editorial | Defacement isn’t discourse

Those who disagree certainly have a right to protest Penn Secular Society, but we would encourage them to find more productive ways of protest.

Editorial | Housing hullabaloo

We do believe that there are significant shortcomings in the existing housing system.

November 12, 2013

Editorial | The rent is too damn high

There is no real reason Penn should be charging students to use campus space for legitimate extracurricular activities.

Editorial | In need of a cultural shift

Students and administrators alike need to re-evaluate how we approach, respond to and inform ourselves about sexual assault at Penn.

October 31, 2013

Editorial | Setting a (minimum) standard

We believe that anyone found guilty of sexual assault should be suspended from campus for at least a semester.

Editorial | Hip, Hub, hooray

We thank Facilities and Real Estate Services for bringing more retail dining options to campus that are not only in tune with student interests and preferences but also healthy, unique and local businesses.

Editorial | Not so hot

That said, it’s not all on the creators of the game. Altogether, students — both those who detest the game and those who find it fun — have spent hours on the site.
