While Google searches and Wikipedia pages do have their benefits, Penn students know their campus and surrounding area best.

We can do our part by showing up and protesting against construction projects that may threaten to encroach on Chinatown in the future. More than ever, it is urgent that we protect what is left.

If you really want to get an accurate assessment of how big the classes are at any school, ask someone who is taking classes you are considering taking, or studying something that you may be interested in.

Dress well and notice the difference in both how you feel and how the people around you view you, speak to you, and respect you.

Dean Ruger’s tip of the hat to progressive politics and worldviews serves as an example of why conservatives should consider studying at another university.

While we fantasize about what the end of the world will look like, the true apocalypse has already hit home and is terrorizing hundreds of communities living on the frontlines.

Just because we attend a world-class university does not mean that we are shielded from the horrors of the opioid crisis.

The only remaining contribution to this store of knowledge Wax is capable of making, it seems, is as an example of the kind of bigotry that should be cast out of society.

Penn must decide where its value lies: in the safety and well-being of the minorities that it proudly touts, or the pockets of those supporting Wax’s problematic discourse.

Amy Wax's views serve as a reflection of the character of Penn, both as an institution and a community. By taking a position at Penn, Wax has joined a community of students and scholars, that, although diverse in thought and culture, have agreed to abide by a set of guiding principles.

Although the law school has stopped her from teaching first-year classes, I do not believe these steps are adequate to protect the students at Penn Law and the integrity of the school.

The best advice I have received has been from people who don’t just sympathize with me, but empathize with me. Though I had never considered joining a support group before, I am tremendously grateful for the sincere support of my fellow returning students and the empathic discussions that we’ve shared.

Penn students, staff, and faculty can better inform the City’s approach to the future of the PES site. I would like to represent Penn’s multitudes by facilitating the Penn community’s potential contributions to the advisory group’s mission.

There are still clubs that have more than two rounds of interviews and require resumes, but they get away with it because students at Penn are often wired to work as hard as they can to reach their goals, even if it is not good for their mental health.

If Biden is to return to campus at any time during these next few months, he should return fully prepared to put his talents to use for the good of the Penn community, or else the University should pay him a salary that more accurately reflects his contributions to this institution.

We need to incorporate the act of reading into our daily routine. Even reading one or two full-length articles from a fairly reputable newspaper or reading a chapter of a book can make a difference.

Within the Penn community, this summer effort intends to inspire richer discussion and learning among students and scholars across campus, as well as introduce researchers around campus to each others’ efforts.

While Penn’s recent efforts to expand financial aid and support to first-generation low-income students are commendable, they are insufficient. Improving access to education needs to be a foremost priority for institutions that have the resources to do so.

By lowering the barriers that divide students across the undergraduate schools, the University could create a more united student body that is better able to both collaborate with itself and foster a sense of unity at this school that is sorely lacking.

The extent to which high school, college, and graduate students depend on Khan Academy tells us how lackluster some of their more conventional resources tend to be.
