The abuse of this drug by students who simply want to cram for their upcoming midterm or pump out a paper at four in the morning is what I take issue with.

Reclassifying economics as a STEM major would affirm Penn’s commitment to such a prominent portion of its student body, and their futures after completing their undergraduate degrees.

Wharton is consistently ranked one of the best business schools in the world. Attending a school like Penn gives us an unparalleled opportunity to learn from elite business professionals, in the shape of both peers and faculty.

Influencing or reversing a policy made by the administration may seem like an impossible task, but it has certainly been done before. We must continue to advocate for the change we want through hands-on activism.

This year’s housing process was extremely flawed. In typical Penn fashion, the lottery-based time slots fostered unnecessary competition among students, and when coupled with unexpected differences in housing prices, resulted in extreme inequities.

If Penn truly values the services RAs provide and appreciates the fact that low-income students are the ones incentivized to provide them, they will stop creating a new set of problems for students who already have plenty to deal with.

Students often complain, and rightly so, because Penn, indeed, has a long way to go in improving their housing situation. But, we must be aware that in comparison to many other colleges, Penn’s housing services are well above average.

Penn’s competitive culture is a fantastic motivator. It’s also a fantastic reason to feel an awful trepidation when asking for help, whether that help be in reference to a simple homework question or a major search for a post-grad job

Joe Biden's track record is flawed, and the Democratic party needs a new face to rally behind. We urge Biden not to declare his candidacy for president.

My countless run-ins with verbal harassment in the Philadelphia area has varied between mildly annoying and frightening to the point where I have had police officers file into my apartment after a 911 call made on my way home from Center City.

One depressing fact about this is that history is repeating itself — and we have clearly not learned our lesson from it.

At the root of this anguish is Penn’s system for course registration.

What I realized was that given the choice to decide to follow God or not, choosing it myself makes it so much more powerful.
