What's HapPENNing?

Well, it's the last full week of March, although Weather.com might indicate otherwise. Time is FLYING, Quakerz! So don't get burnt out, because Penn is a-bustlin' with events galore. Maybe your midterms are done! Maybe the Fling headliner will be announced! Two-thirds of the student body is likely in tech week for the myriad of performances happening this upcoming weekend. Let's take a look at what's going down on campus before the arrival of April and all its alcoholism.

Green Week 2013

Who? Student Sustainability Association at Penn (SSAP) When and where? Ongoing everywhere, through Greenfest on Friday Why? Environmentalism is sexy and the green lovin' doesn't end with St. Paddy's Day

Passover at Penn

Who? Hillel (obvi) When and where? Hillel, tonight through the rest of PESACH Why? God parted the red seas to help Moses lead the Jews to Israel (you can read about it in the Bible), so Passover is a BFD - class cancellations are not uncommon. Celebrate with seders tonight and tomorrow and something called Mega Shabbat on Friday, with performances by the Shabbatones and Bloomers

SPEC Art Gallery Presents: Guerilla Girls

Who? SPEC Art Gallery; Guerilla Girls When and where? Tuesday at 6pm in Meyerson Why? Anonymous feminist artist activists wearing gorilla masks FO FREE. Z-Braff and SNL's Kate & Vanessa aren't the only cool cats being brought to Penn by SPEC this week

Philo Wine Appreciation Class

Who? Philomathean Society When and where? The next five Thursdays - five weekly seminars from 7-9pm in Philomathean Halls (4th floor of College Hall) Why? Bizarrely elegant imbibing for those 21+ on a usually Bankers-filled campus

CityStep Presents: Battle of the Dance

Who? CityStep When and where? Thursday at 10pm at the Blockley Why? Frat pledge classes dancin' they booties off for a good cause

Stimulus Children's Theater Presents: Robin Hood

Who? Stim When and where? Thursday through Saturday in Houston's Class of '49 Auditorium Why? Cute kids' play, Men in Tights a possibility

Off the Beat Presents: Aural Sects

Spring Fashion Week: Welcome to the Dollhouse

Who? D2S/Penn Fashion Week When and where? Saturday at 8pm in Bodek Lounge Why? Not a Danity Kane album, but rather an opportunity to Miranda Priestly it up and purse your lips judgmentally
