On Oct. 28 this year, PennWorld is hosting its Mix It Up event to encourage intercultural conversations, as well as identifying and questioning social boundaries. Students will be assigned seats in dining halls so they can eat and talk with someone they don't normally interact with. The location in dining halls creates a symbol for change in a place where, normally, segregation is common.
Last Thursday was the inaugural session of the Penn Political Union, a new branch of the Government and Politics Association. The organization is the first central political institution for people of all political perspectives at Penn to voice their ideas and opinions.
