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

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.

While one day off isn’t enough for most students to travel home or elsewhere off-campus, short, intermittent breaks during the semesters are far more meaningful in improving campus mental health.

Whether or not we believe or act on allegations — in politics or on our campus — often depends strongly on how we feel about the accused.

Inclusion is not just about the amount of female engineers entering Penn, but also about making them feel that they belong here.

All of these alumni are not remembered for what they studied or even what clubs they were involved on campus, but rather they are known for what they chose to do with their skills.

Penn Dining must increase the scope of meal plans.

We Penn students are entering that dangerous arena of adult love, and sometimes need to be reminded that with adult love there is the possibility of adult heartbreak.
