In March, for the first time since World War II, we made the decision to pause print production of The Daily Pennsylvanian and 34th Street Magazine.

The unjust murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Rayshard Brooks, and countless others at the hands of the police are part of a long history of systemic racism in the United States. This is an urgent moment in American history. As journalists, we at The Daily Pennsylvanian are aware of the tremendous responsibility we have to cover this time in human history responsibly and ethically. We stand in solidarity with Black students, staff, and faculty at Penn. Black Lives Matter.

The Penn parent who bribed former men's basketball star and coach Jerome Allen also sent funds to the college consultant behind the widespread scheme, according to Allen's recent testimony.
A few weeks ago, my 12-year old cousin asked me an important question.
My first impression of Penn was shaped by the words of a student tour guide. He showed me around campus, spoke about his experience, and provided information regarding the application process. This is invaluable work. And Penn never paid him for it.
