Fire Alarm at Pottruck Forces Abrupt Cool Down

As of late, it seems that a day at Penn doesn’t go by without a fire alarm being set off. This afternoon, just two days after residents of Rodin were evacuated in the middle of the night for a “steam”-y emergency, a fire alarm went off in Pottruck, sending hoards of swole Quakers out into the cold.

While it is not yet clear why the fire alarm was set off, the fire department arrived at the gym around 5PM. If you have any idea what happened, or if this was just an elaborate prank to get the swim team to shiver outside in their swim caps, tip us at tips@underthebutton.com.
