As Sunday’s final buzzer of the Ivy League basketball championship was drowned out by what was likely the loudest crowd the Palestra has heard in a decade, as I bolted down the bleachers to join a frenzied mass of Penn students more jubilant than any Spring Fling crowd I had ever seen, as I hurrah hurrah-ed the team that was going to the Big Dance for the first time in 11 years, I thought to myself, “Damn, we should do this more often.”

In our three-and-a-half years working at The Daily Pennsylvanian, close to 10 students have died by suicide, a statistic as remarkable to write as it is now commonplace to hear across campus. With each email from some Penn administrator, we have grown numb to feeling pain, to mourning the death of someone close to us, to finally attaching a name to the problem of mental illness endemic to Penn.
A hot start, followed by a slow and turnover-filled second half. Nothing new for the Quakers this season — except this time, they held on for the win.

We are joined in this Penn community by about 4,700 standing and associated faculty and almost 2,500 academic support staff.

Today, the DP is a multi-million dollar media organization and is completely independent editorially from the University.
