The newly renovated Ringe Squash Courts, set to open on Nov. 9, will now charge fees, a measure that will effectively prohibit some squash enthusiasts from making use of the new facilities.

The fact remains that Penn students suffer from many of the same issues the rest of society does, including substance abuse and addiction to opiates.
