Making good on their promise of much-needed improvements on campus, administrators were thrilled to announce on Friday that Huntsman Hall will be undergoing renovations throughout the 2018-2019 school year. Frustrated that plumbing allotments from past years’ capital campaigns were funneled toward the Rodin flood and fixing the sink next to Makuu, several donors threatened to withhold support until conditions in Huntsman are improved.

With Penn’s tuition costs rising faster than ever, Student Financial Services has a moral obligation to each and every student member of Penn’s Board of Trustees to ensure that the University is maximizing its profits.

Fine, I’ll date you. I mean, you don’t have the dreamiest eyes, or the broadest shoulders, or the most defined cheekbones. You probably haven’t hit the gym in the past few weeks (or years), and you smell like cheesesteaks and clam chowder.
