While her Wharton friends were creating startups and her Engineering friends were working on complex machinery, Susan Goldberg (C ‘20) focused on developing an even more important idea: the best way to avoid making small talk on Locust. Susan paid a young, married couple to push her from class to class in a pink stroller.
Some students define themselves by the clubs they’re part of. Not so with Anna May (E ‘19). Upon entering Penn, she knew that the Squirrel Protection Society (SPS) would be her home for the four years to come.
Inspiring! Student Unable to Handle Rigor of Math or Econ Alone Declares Major in Mathematical Economics
In times like these, it’s important to remind yourself that the world is still a fundamentally beautiful place. Just consider the inspirational story of Sam Kardar (C '20).
We all have our roommate problems. Maybe you live with someone who sleeps through 30 consecutive alarms in the morning, doesn't do their dishes, or is constantly invading your personal space. But Julio Dawson (C '18) takes shitty roommate to the next level. He recently spent $80 on a ticket for the Despacito LLC Downtown that's coming up, yet refuses to pay his roommates back for basic household needs like toilet paper, water cups, and trash bags.
OP-ED: This Class May Just Be Your Foundational Requirement, but It's in My Major. Show Some Respect.
You must be so happy that you found a course that fills both the Physical World and QDA requirements. Really got two birds stoned at the same time, huh? And it’s easy too! You must feel like the luckiest kid in DRL. I'm going to let you in on a secret, though: This class is for my major, so show some goddamn respect.
Who would walk down Locust in a grey, Gideon-brand Penn dad shirt besides an actual student’s father? Me. I would.
On another solitary Friday night in a GSR lit only by firelight, Maxwell Norman (W ‘19) practices his craft, blindfolded and with a hand tied behind his back. For most Penn students, Excel is nothing more than resume fodder used to distract recruiters from mediocre GPAs and non-existent extracurriculars, but for Norman, Excel means so much more, and frankly—it’s sort of weirding us out.
What isn't there to love about sex? Pleasure, passion, seductively whispering your Second Amendment rights to your partner—these are all things that we all enjoy and that shouldn't be stigmatized. I'm all for the destigmatization of sex, but Alice, please, don't aggressively bang your man during the wee hours of the morning before our CIS midterm.
OMG! I’m so embarrassed! Judy Bloom didn’t say it would be anything like this. I was in Oceanography in DRL and when I ducked out for a bathroom break, I pulled down my pants and thought maybe I shat myself out of boredom, but I’m starting to think that’s not the case…

Quaker Days—the grandiose commoditization of the college admissions process by wining and dining high school seniors—allows the University to give prospective students a raw, authentic, no frills look into what their lives as Penn students would look like. We as current students are constantly treated with delicious free meals, decorative cookies and Amy Gutmann appearances, so this makes sense.
Look, I’ll be honest with you. I did not really give a shit about gentrification until this moment.
Look, I’m not fucking my professor. I never have and never will have any interest in fucking my professor. But I think it should be allowed if I wanted to.
Oh no! Greg Gregson (W '19) forgot his headphones today. To add insult to injury, he had just made a Spotify playlist with that new Chainsmokers song Closer on it. How did he survive the lengthy commute from The Radian to Huntsman without blasting some sick tunes?

In a groundbreaking longitudinal study that spanned four years, two continents and several thousand pounds of mozzarella cheese, today Penn researchers have dealt a decisive blow against anyone who thinks it’s appropriate to defile the one pure thing left in the world in 2018 (pizza) with mushy cubes of yellow fruit.
The good folks at SPEC Concerts have been working tirelessly to revolutionize how people can spend $35 to black out in a poorly-lit field, and once again, it looks like they’re catching lightning in a bottle with a fresh new theme. Between rib-splitting promotional content posted on Penn’s meme page to a focused push to rebrand Fling with all the throwbacks of a Ken’s BYO without the General Tso’s chicken, SPEC is revolutionizing how to market events that people feel mild social pressure to attend.
This week, PennOutdoors announced an exciting and enriching hiking program available to undergraduates for the summer of 2018.
