By halftime, it was pitch black and the thermometer read in the single digits. The wind whipping off the nearby Hudson kept blowing out of the sideline heaters, making it feel even colder. Now, a year later, the legendary temperature drops in every retelling of the story.

Many students part ways with their meal plans after freshman year, for countless reasons: meal plans are expensive, there are limited options for those with dietary restrictions, and the operating hours often conflict with students’ schedules, to name a few.
Textbooks present a financial burden to students. Penn estimates that students will spend $1,318 on academic materials this academic year. But this dollar amount varies greatly per student, and even with financial aid, this is often a heavy cost to bear, particularly for first-generation, low-income students. The University offers a textbook library for FGLI students at the Greenfield Intercultural Center in order to cut costs. But due to a recent surge in demand, the library needs increased staffing, space, and funding. Penn needs to step up and provide more resources to the FGLI textbook library.
The spaces that appear prominently on Penn's campus speak to its values as an institution. Yet, on Locust Walk, the historic fraternity houses far overshadow other groups. La Casa Latina, Makuu, and the Pan-Asian American Community House are confined to a basement in the ARCH building.
Last year, Penn celebrated when the Philadelphia Eagles became the Super Bowl LII champions. This year, as the country again turns to watch the top NFL teams contend for a championship, attention on Colin Kaepernick’s protests against racist police practices has been renewed.
NEW YORK — It wasn't smooth sailing, but when it mattered most, the Red and Blue got the job done.
NEW YORK — The Quakers came in looking to bounce back, but they are going to have to fight hard if they want to do just that.
ITHACA N.Y. — Eleah Parker was just too much for Cornell to handle.
In 2016 — the most recent year for which Penn's data is public — Penn President Amy Gutmann earned a record high of $3,908,031. This is a 10.5 percent increase from the previous year, the number makes her the second highest-paid university president in the Ivy League. Still, The Daily Pennsylvanian Editorial Board supports Gutmann's high salary for her work fundraising, diversifying opportunities for students, and building new spaces for our campus.
Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos’s proposed Title IX regulations move one step closer to approval on Jan. 30, when the period for public comment on the proposal draws to a close.
After 20 years at Penn, Head Coach of Strength and Conditioning Jim Steel abruptly resigned from his position on Jan. 10. This marks the second departure from Penn Athletics this month after Senior Associate Athletic Director David Leach also parted ways with the department.
It’s time for Penn to follow other universities in offering free pads and tampons to students across campus. The Undergraduate Assembly recently announced it is working to increase accessibility to menstrual products, an initiative that will entail placing tampons in gender-neutral spaces and reducing “stigmas that prevent menstrual products from being viewed as a necessity.” The UA's initiative is a step in the right direction. Still, Penn must take action too.
Sorority recruitment can be unforgiving. It demands hours of small talk, trudging through the cold, and being subject to the opinions of older peers. Each year, freshmen emerge from rush with bids from sororities, hundreds of friends stronger than they began. But it is inevitable that the process will leave many young women feeling inadequate, disappointed, and confused about their futures at Penn.
It only takes a few days on Penn's campus before you hear rumors from new friends or see a meme in a Facebook group about the poor quality of care from Penn's Counseling and Psychological Services and its lack of funding. Wait times for appointments are long. The CAPS office is far from campus. And, seriously, Wharton is getting its own private counselor?
I’m a big fan of letting things play out before rushing to judgment — when friends and colleagues begin to panic, I'm always the one who argues that things aren’t as bad as they seem.
Sometimes the best team wins, sometimes it doesn't.
As far as tune-up games go, this one went about as well as coach Mike McLaughlin could hope.
Penn Athletics had an eventful year in 2018, highlighted by the second annual Ivy League Basketball Tournaments, a near upset of No. 1 Kansas in March Madness, the first player to be drafted to the NFL since 2002, an individual national championship for women’s squash star Reeham Sedky, and six Ivy title runs spread across each of the three seasons, including men’s fencing and women’s track and field, lacrosse, and soccer.
2018 was a year to remember. Take a look back on Penn's most memorable moments with The Daily Pennsylvanian's Year in Review.
Athletes and analysts love talking about grit. It’s a pretty great word. No other phrase as succinctly and clearly points to the scrappiness and perseverance good teams have and bad teams don’t. It has also been overused to the point of meaningless cliché.
