Sophomore Throws Party to Celebrate Major Declaration

April has always been relatively devoid of any opportunity to party, but College sophomore Samuel Bloom has found an event that any Penn student can celebrate: his faculty advisor has finally signed his major declaration form, and Bloom wants all of his closest friends and acquaintances to come celebrate the first day of the rest of his life.

Bloom is the newest member of the Psychology Department, which means he never again has to meet with his pre-major advisor in the Department of Biochemistry. In addition, declaring his major has made it easier than ever to maneuver his academic planning worksheet on Penn InTouch.

UTB contacted Bloom directly to ask how he decided to make this life-altering decision, to which Bloom responded, “All my Chem courses have really sucked, but PSYC 001 is pretty chill. It feels like the right move for me personally, to pursue my passion for not having to do Chemistry assignments.”

The festivities will commence Friday, April 20th, at 10 p.m. at Bloom’s "party" house in Short Hills, New Jersey.
