As we make efforts to make campus a healthier place, it’s important to focus on the core issues that make students stressed. Midterm season is upon us and inevitably, it is a tough time for many.
Over the summer, Houston Hall underwent a $15.5 million renovation, bringing new eateries and a revamped space for members of the Penn community. One of the goals was to provide a more comfortable space to eat and work. And with improved lighting and an improved food court, it definitely does that. Even more remarkable is that the new sleek look still preserves the historic nature of Houston Hall.
Three years ago, if I had heard the news that Huntsman was closing at 2 a.m., I would have been frustrated. Perhaps I might have even been furious that the University was not focusing on the important aspects of mental health. A spot for late-night studying and Wawa for late night snacks were essentials of my first two years of college and essential for my success in classes.
Modern breakthroughs in the science of artificial intelligence have made robots more and more human. But as this year’s internship recruitment season winds down, I wonder if my fellow Penn students have lost a bit of humanity in the process.
Upon returning from winter break, we were all greeted by a school-wide email informing us of the launch of the Campaign for Wellness program. Many of us were pleased that our concerns were being heard, while others among us doubted the effectiveness of such a program. But how can we judge its effectiveness without taking a look at what exactly it is?
As I filled out course evaluations last semester, praying that my finals saved my grades, I started to reminisce on the professors that I have had at Penn. It was interesting that I could not stop writing for some professors, while I was trying to force words for others. It was like I didn’t even know them.
My mom had always told me to get my head out of my phone and banned it any time we ate as well. I never really understood why and thought maybe it was just a generational gap thing.
As I attempted to navigate through the crowd of mostly freshman at the activities fair, I could not help but reminisce on my experience during my first few months of school. The memories have faded, but the feelings and emotions of anxiety, social pressure and trying to find a home are still strong.
