Some students just can’t be helped.
Gordon Bolton (E ‘19) always thought that Graphic Design was his passion. He came to Penn with his heart set on the elite Digital Media Design program, and over his first two years distinguished himself as one of its most brilliant students.
Ever since the advanced registration period has opened up, students have been scrambling to find the best classes. One way students search for courses is to see student ratings on the ‘PennCourseReview’ website, which provides ratings on a 4.0 scale in 11 different categories. But while students are able to see ratings for aspects such as “Instructor Accessibility”, “Ability to Stimulate Interest”, and “Amount Learned”, they are often left looking for more detail. That is why PennCourseReview is going to add a new category, the second addition since the site's inception: “Instructor Chillness”.
Meet Penn’s newest professor: Kyle Stern (C ’20) has made waves in the philosophy world after discovering the meaning of life while under the influence of LSD. His insights are considered so groundbreaking, the University couldn’t pass up the chance to give him tenure.
MSG is good for you, according to a new study led by researchers at Penn Medicine. The study was generously funded by Nongshim Co.
Jamie Harper (W '20) may seem like any other college sophomore, but he has a natural gift—a "Natty" gift, if you will. He can spot the cases of Natural Light beer in any grocery store he enters. Blindfolded, spun around three times, and walking on his hands, Harper can and will find the crown jewel of the beverage aisle. But sadly, his sensing abilities can only extend so far.
Emily Johnston (C '19) recalls standing by the sink in a Huntsman bathroom when she heard the first flush. “I had just finished washing my hands when I heard the toilet do its thing. Thinking nothing of it, I went to get a paper towel,” Johnston said in an exclusive interview outside Steinberg-Dietrich Hall. “As I was about to get a paper towel, I heard it again. I don't often raise an eyebrow to the sound of two flushes, but I stood still for a second, waiting for the familiar sound of the opening stall door. I wanted to know who my bathroom companion was.” That was the moment she remembers everything changing.
Jared Sullivan (C '21) has high aspirations. After watching Superbad and finding “Man’s Not Hot” before all of his friends, he decided that pursuing a career in comedy might be worthwhile.
You had a pretty sweet date night two Thursdays ago. First, you went to a sick BYO— ate some vaguely Asian food, drank a quart of Sunset Blush, the usual. Then, you hopped in an Uber and drove 8 blocks to the venue. Even better? The bouncer your date's frat hired totally fell for your IDGod Connecticut and gave you a wristband. Haha, like, you're not gonna be 21 for another 4 months. Sweet! Good thing you paid $12 for a jack and coke and sipped it in a designated section of the club while everyone else danced. Can you say awesome?
Over the years two things about Penn have never changed. 1. New Penn students have always been required to purchase the dining plan. 2. Special people get special privileges. But what happens when these two clash?
It’s club/organization election time again, and the competition is fierce. As all Penn students have come to know, getting into college is just the beginning of the cutthroat application process. Students may get disheartened by the scarcity of opportunity for so many qualified applicants.

Freaky! Aleah Spencer (C' 19) is somehow a remarkably bad communicator despite also being a Communication major.
Brian Relz (E ‘19) sure knows how to step up his extra-curricular game. This semester, Relz struck out on his own to create a club only for rich, attractive students-- and himself. Though not particularly well-known for either his looks or his wealth, Relz is dedicated to his new venture.

Sweet! Professor Gives Class Halloween Candy, But Will Also Give Majority a Final Grade of "B-" or Below
Pre-med freshman John McArthur (C ’21) was feeling jaded, to say the least. He was just railed by his sixth round of midterms last week, he spent his bank account down to $6.73 over the Halloweekend at a slew of downtowns, and his parents recently refused to continue funding his recent Juul addiction, which he’s actually in denial about. Yikes!
