To help you out, here’s a list of things we wish we had been told — or wish we had listened to — when we were in your shoes.
As the very students about whom Taylor makes overarching generalizations, we are disappointed that she failed to account for the rich diversity of our student body by only acknowledging the responses of a subset of single, straight women — an unrepresentative sample tainted by its homogeneity.
While this bill was not a large step, it was progress, it was momentum, it could have been precedent. With it, we could have moved forward — still together — and talked about what more we could do. The fact that we can do nothing is just ridiculous.
We’re not saying underage drinking is not a crime and that certain persons are above the law. We are saying that the police weren’t enforcing the law — they were enforcing Fling.
Penn should have exercised its authority by addressing the building violations in a more proactive manner.
Penn will be relying on you to achieve its goal of interviewing all applicants by 2015. So sign up as soon as you graduate.
While pro-Israel and pro-Palestine students have condemned the killing of civilians on these very pages, they’ve also voiced seemingly irreconcilable views on the conflict. No resolution or coalition will be achieved unless students on both sides of the aisle are willing to listen to each other.
Dephanie Jao’s encounter happened on Locust Walk around 9:40 p.m. Sexual assaults happen to one in four college women in the United States.
Voting shouldn’t be an uphill battle. It should be an easy process — one that unites the country and invites everyone to have a say.
The Daily Pennsylvanian endorses Bob Casey Jr. for Congress, Kathleen Kane for Attorney General, Robert McCord for State Treasurer and Eugene DePasquale for Auditor General
We’re voting for Obama to be on the right side of history — to stand behind policies that respond to this country’s place in an increasingly globalized community.
While Sandy left our campus largely unscathed, the University was prepared for much worse.
Affirmative action has its flaws. But it is the only tried and true method to achieve the same diversity that we currently see in higher education.
Since our lives are inextricably tied to technology, learning to secure data will pay huge dividends in the future.
Beyond the obvious drawback of preventing new groups from enlivening the extracurricular scene, the moratorium is an embarrassment to Penn.
While detractors have criticized the unprecedented nature of the penalty against Penn State, the response was justified by the unprecedented nature of an atrocity enabled by a culture of football worship.
On Tuesday, Penn announced a rewriting of the sexual violence policy. We commend Penn on the revision, in particular the updates to its definitions — which include a more detailed definition of consent — and the inclusion of a list of support resources for victims of sexual violence.
With a student debt crisis mounting — Americans owe more student loan debt than credit card debt — and college tuition continuing to rise, the bleeding must be stopped.
As the election season heats up, the Supreme Court has left it to the voters to decide whether the Affordable Care Act is good policy — or whether it unjustly punishes people for inactivity. While there are short-term benefits for students, the long-term consequences are yet to be seen.
Penn has made significant strides in closing the achievement gap. Despite progress that has been reported, however, the University must not become complacent. There is still work to be done, and the University must constantly revise its programs to attract the best and brightest, regardless of background.
