Seriously, Stop Swiping: Penn Cards Go Contactless


All summer long, A-Gut has been dropping some serious ca$h. While not all of the upgrades have been necessary, we think we can get behind the most recent investment: contactless Penn cards!

Thanks to this cringe-worthy tweet (although, let's be real: we can't help but love the Penn Twitter account), we can rest assured knowing that our future awkward, drunken encounters with the Quad security guard will be approximately 1.768 seconds quicker!!! The rollout is expected to take a few months, starting with new students/staff and those poor souls who lost their current cards. Check out the grown-sexy card here and--ta-da!--swipe less, stress less™ (a slogan for which Penn can pay us).
