Penn Salsa Dancers went into their big show Friday night with high hopes. Little did they know the disaster they were headed into: every member of the club forgot their feet at home.
Uh oh! Sarah Steinberg (C '21) decided to scratch her head at the exact moment her professor asked the class if they had any questions.
Welcome to my prestigious organization, the Executive Board Club. What sets this club apart is that every member can be on the executive board. Not only can you be on the executive board, but it's mandatory in order to be in the club.
It’s a Saturday night, and you’re at a Ken’s Seafood BYO with some club you’ve only been to twice (but you’re still somehow on the exec board). You scream-sing “Since U Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson with some random dude you just met, and before you know it, you’re making out. Oh, that girl who’s the president? You made out with her 30 seconds ago, too.
At Penn, it’s easy to get stuck in an uninspired cycle of mindlessly taking graduation and major requirements without ever thinking outside of the box. Nevertheless, a handful of intrepid students use the course shopping period as a time to explore new subjects, skip lectures without repercussions, and sell their spots in popular classes to the highest bidders. But for one junior, adding a class means more than just checking off boxes.
Eagles. Patriots. To most, these are just football teams.
Amazing! Sophomore Managed to Run Through Every Embarrassing Moment in Her Life on Walk to 9 AM Spanish Class
The skill and complexity of Penn students are often hard for those outside the Penn bubble to even begin to conceptualize. On a standard stroll down Locust Walk, you could meet an up-and-coming filmmaker who is also dedicated to community service, a talented vocalist who is also pre-med, or even a basketball star who is curing cancer. Although there are many talented Quakers, one of the standouts in this competitive and accomplished environment is Kaitlin Rogers (C '20) who is able to recall every single embarrassing moment in her life on her way to 9 am Spanish class.
Wow—it sure sounds loud outside for 2 am on a cold winter night! It seems impossible that humans could be making such a ruckus outside at this time. The sound must be occurring because you, like 15% of the U.S. population, have tinnitus, NOT because a pack of loud frat boys are yelling at the moon, right? Wrong. Despite what logic tells you, it's unclear whether your tinnitus or members of a nearby fraternity are causing the noise. Take this quiz to figure out which it is.
Early Wednesday morning in the 10:30 am Urban Studies seminar ‘Affordable Housing in a Global City,' Brandon Schifrin accomplished a feat like no other. During a conversation on chapter four of the textbook focusing on affordable housing in Latin America, classmate Jenna Espinoza made an insightful comment about the ‘Juntos Nos Levantamos’ Housing project in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Jenny Kalz (C ’21) had been through enough. From the hyper-competitive environment in her classes to the humble-bragging about Bain & Company internships, Wharton was just too cutthroat for her to continue in the school. So, this brave freshman left Wharton and transferred to the College to study BBB. “It’s just way less stressful!” she said, apparently unaware of reality.
Last Friday morning, the unthinkable happened. Claire Bradley (E '21) was walking down Spruce Street on her way home after class when her phone lit up with words no one ever hopes to see.
While making polite small talk on the Amtrak to Union Station in Washington, D.C., Anna Yeoman (W '20) declined to clarify the truth when the elderly woman in the adjacent seat mistook "Penn" for Pennsylvania State University. "Yup, I go to Penn State," Yeoman confirmed after a short pause, during which time she stared blankly out the window past her seat partner and deliberately chose to dissociate herself from The Wharton School and its famous ties to America's First Family.
Talk about conflicted! This student has no idea what the hell he’s going to do after college— whether it be law school, medical school, modeling, art school, or deep sea plumbing.
A true battle for the ages.
Secret society Pi Alpha Sigma, known in public by its members as only "The Society" in the interest of discretion, has hired a professional photographer for its upcoming Spring Formal.
In a show of perspective and piety to be envied and emulated, newly religious Penn student Jacob D. (C '19) refrains from cocaine use on Shabbat.
Look. We know the Penn administration has a ways to go before they earn our love and trust. But we have to appreciate how much they try to win us over.
Restaurant Week is a celebrated pastime for many Penn students; a time where broke college kids can have a three-course meal that doesn’t involve leftover trays of Hummus Grill in the Huntsman forum. College senior Brandon Shao, however, sees things differently.
A lot of my friends didn’t know what they wanted to major in when they came into college, and a lot of them still don’t. But me? I’ve known exactly what I wanted to do ever since the second day of fourth grade, when I saw the best and most socially relevant film of all time: Legally Blonde, starring the iconic Reese Witherspoon.
