According to Trojan, hook-ups at Penn are hot, heavy and healthy. 

The Trojan Sexual Health Report Card, commissioned by Trojan via Sperling’s BestPlaces, is an annual ranking that evaluates 140 universities nationwide based on the accessibility of sexual health resources and information available to students on campus. Since the rankings started 10 years ago, Penn has jumped 24 spots.

This year, Penn ranked 21 in the rankings. These rankings are based on a 4.0 scale, with the average at a low 1.90. The rankings are made up of different elements such as condom availability, quality of sexual health information, resources on websites and sexual assault programs, among other categories. Oregon State University earned the top ran for the second year in a row. The school with the highest jump in rank from 2006 to 2015 is the University of Wisconsin, rising 69 spots from No. 92 to No. 23.

Compared to other Ivies, Penn is still lagging behind. Brown is ranked No. 5, and Columbia is No. 8 out of the 140 schools surveyed. This ranking comes two months after the Association of American University released the results of the sexual violence climate survey, which sparked increased discussion on sexual assault across campus.
