University students must seek stimulus outside the bounds of campus. Did you ever get the feeling that the walls of your bedroom are closing in around you? Does Locust Walk seem to be getting narrower each passing day, only to squeeze you into the stronghold of campus, never to be set free? Did you ever just get a burning desire to hop on a train with a one-way ticket to nowhere, or a place called "anywhere but here?" Are you ready for an escape? My apologies for sounding like shameless ad campaign for a local travel agency. However, my point still remains: do you ever leave the confines of campus? Now that you may have officially established West Philadelphia as your home, doesn't it seem time for a long overdue, well deserved break? So, lose yourself in the music. Drown in the words of someone's distant past. Immerse yourself in the diversity. And open your eyes and ears to the world of people and art that exist outside of Penn.
