Stressful, Miserable Campus Now Also Cold

In a surprising development, this exhausting, soul-draining school is cold now.

Penn, already a taxing, frustrating, alienating place, was at least warm until last week.

Now it’s fucking cold, too.

Walking from imposing building to imposing building used to at least offer a few moments of sunshine as a salve for existential pain. Now you shiver as you trudge from one locus of punishment to another.

Sources report Penn will remain this way for several months, until this bitter, inhospitable hellscape gets warm again. It'll still be a bitter, inhospitable hellscape but at least it won't be so cold.
