Graduation PSA – The robes bleed when wet, so plan on wearing all black or trashing your clothes after the ceremony.
Shoutouts – Send them in (via the convenient box at the top of this page) before the night's over!
We just got word of a robbery at the AT&T store at 38th and Walnut via the increasingly more frequent/terrifying/effective DPS text service. Fortunately there were no injuries reported, but the Penn (and Philly!) Police are investigating and advising students to stay out of the area. Safe to say this is a good excuse to make the weekend last a little longer and skip that first class.
Hey everyone. Neil Fanaroff here in snowy Manhattan to cover tonight's contest between Penn and Columbia. Stay inside, stay warm, and follow along with me as I'll be keeping you updated as to the goings on up here.
Hi and welcome to Boston for what is effectively the Ivy League championship game in football. Penn (6-2, 5-0 Ivy) battles Harvard (6-2, 5-0) on a rain-soaked day here at Harvard Stadium. This is Eli Cohen bringing you live updates as the Quakers fight for their first conference title since 2003.
It seems like Philadelphia these days is a veritable city of love. The New York Times loves Philly, Obama loves Philly, and Philly even loves us back. This week Street decided to send back a little love to Philadelphia's BYOs, navigable streets and Phillies fans. We figured we'd take it one step further by venturing past 46th Street on the El to visit some oversized missives from Philly in the form of the Mural Arts Program's Love Letter project.
Today's Wall Street Journal features an article in which they asked (threatened with scathing articles?) college presidents to submit a response to one of their own institution's undergraduate application essay questions. We were delighted to see that our very own Amy Gutmann was chosen and was somehow coerced into answering the infamous "Page 217 of your 300 page autobiography" question. We were not delighted to see that her response was bo-ring.
If you're not a total zombie, chances are the last days of class and the run-up to finals are kicking your ass and making you feel like some evil higher power is holding you hostage with a fast forward button. Does that make any sense? We're honestly not sure, but Street photo guru Thomas Jansen made this totally sweet time lapse video of the high rises, and you need to check it out.
Because we know you've been wondering... This year's Fling looks to be rain free (knock on wood) according to The Weather Channel's convenient 10 day forecast. Of course, we'd like it to be a little warmer, but at least it won't be all wet and soggy (Floggy?).
Today's 34th Street features illustrations by students taking Digital Design Foundations with David Comberg this semester. Their assignment was to represent a figure with a notorious reputation. Check out the graphics on the back page of the magazine, or by viewing the slideshow we put together:
About two weeks ago (while most of you were cramming for midterms and stocking up on sunscreen) sandwich-board-toting construction workers began picketing outside the Radian, occasionally accompanied by a large, inflatable rodent. Much befuddlement ensued among the half-a-dozen residents who were able to detach themselves from their BlackBerrys long enough to look up on their way to class.
UTB hit up the Starlight Ballroom last night to rock out with Girl Talk. See yourself (or anyone you know)? Post it in the comments!
We have a sneaking suspicion that most of you didn't heed our advice and head down to Love Park a few weekends ago to hook up in the shadow of City Hall. For those of you who stayed warm on campus, check out the final product, brought to you by gophila.com.
Thomas Jansen and Mustafa Al-ammar were our ShutterButtons on the scene last night.
SPOTTED: Philadelphia mayor and Penn grad Michael Nutter and his wife on an early morning post-inaugural train back to Philly. Having presumably spent yesterday in Washington with our fine nation's political elite, Nutter slummed it with the rest of us on the regional, in coach, no less! Unlike another semi-notable local politician who was known to favor a first-class ride on Amtrak's Acela, Nutter did his part to reduce (slow the increase?) of Philadelphia's massive deficit by saving the city a chunk of change. Props to you, Mayor Nutter!
Everyone knows that exam time is Facebook time. You've just found the perfect spot in Van Pelt (where no one can see your laptop's screen) so what's the first thing you do? Open up Facebook and try to postpone your studying for as long as possible. I have to admit that I'm victim to these same urges.
