‘I Can't Wait To Escape Penn's Toxic Environment This Summer,' Says Student Who's Living in House On Sansom

College freshman Cynthia Clark was thrilled to get a research position at Penn this summer, but she soon became worried about staying in the oft stressful, frequently competitive environment of Penn all summer. Luckily, Clark found a way to keep her research position and still get away from Penn’s toxic environment.

“A girl from my friend’s sorority knows a guy who’s subletting a room in his house on Sansom this summer, so I snatched that right up! It’s a bit of a walk from campus, at 4025 Sansom, but I think it’s really gonna be worth it to be outside of the Penn Bubble. That way, this summer can be super relaxing and I’ll be refreshed once the fall semester starts,” Clark told us.

Having never walked past 40th street ourselves, we can’t relate, but we imagine that it’s a whole different world out there.
