Over the past few weeks, there has been a great deal of debate surrounding the need for increased mental health resources at CAPS. And while I do agree that this facility needs to be more efficient in reaching out to students who schedule appointments, I beg for everyone to look around elsewhere. No, please do not feel the need to look off campus, but take a look around your college house, cultural center and other similar places. They might be just as helpful, if not better, for you in the long run.
When I read columnist Jeff Nadel’s op-ed in The Daily Pennsylvanian, advocating that students and faculty should be legally allowed to carry their handguns with them on campus, I was appalled. The idea is myopic in scope and puts our campus on a reckless path to a more dangerous future.
On Sept. 16, 2011, I set out to find my own voice through ‘The Ernest Opinion.’ On Dec. 7, 2012, I can say I have found it. This is my last column for The Daily Pennsylvanian.
Over the past two years, I have had the honor and privilege of serving the College of Arts and Sciences on the Undergraduate Assembly as Representative Ernest. The experience has given me great memories but also very visible challenges, many of which revolve around advocacy.
After almost five semesters on the Undergraduate Assembly, my perception of student leadership has changed a lot.

Before I begin, here are three facts you should know:
“He liked to be called Barry back then,” my uncle told me four years ago as we discussed the campaign of then-Sen. Barack Obama. My uncle knew Barry as the man who cleaned up Roseland, a once-impoverished area that stretches between 89th and 115th streets in my hometown, Southside Chicago.
Earlier this month, I met hundreds of student leaders from the Ivy League and other top universities at a leadership summit in Boston. The two-day event organized by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee encouraged us to show off.
It takes a village, according to the Du Bois College House motto. As residents and members of the house’s council, we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. The time that each of us has spent in Du Bois has been filled with loving and enriching experiences. But these experiences were not reflected in a column that College senior Aya Saed published in The Daily Pennsylvanian two weeks ago.
Twenty-one years ago today I was born Ernest Lee Owens Jr. at Michael Reese Hospital. I weighed 7 pounds and 6 ounces.
Last Sunday, College freshman Bill Ding was disqualified from the freshman Undergraduate Assembly elections for hanging six posters on the bridge at 38th and Locust Walk.
As freshmen candidates eagerly strut (and strip ) for votes on the final day of student government elections, another campaign is taking place on Locust Walk.
Last year, I went to a SPEC-sponsored screening at the Rave to see a comedy with six female leads. Many people had snubbed the movie and early reviews for the film claimed it was downright mediocre.
Some of my favorite moments at Penn have happened at 1920 Commons — most of them on a Saturday morning over brunch with friends.
“Doubt can be a bond as powerful and sustaining as certainty,” wrote Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Patrick Shanley in the play “Doubt.”
I have a confession to make. I think going to Penn makes me more fortunate than others. Not only is it an Ivy League institution, but it is one of the best schools in the world. We produce some of the greatest scholars, advocates, doctors and businessmen ever seen.
“No she didn’t.”
Like many of you, I was startled to learn that Spring Fling incidents rose by a staggering 168 percent from last year. Who could have thought a little warm weather would make such an impact?
