We just woke up from our Fling-induced stupor and realized that your weekly dose of events, parties, speakers, and shameless plugs from our favorite campus organizations never quite made it to the interwebs. So, a day late, here goes!
It's been 2 years since we first introduced you to the Scrooge of Fling: the man who avoids the bottle like it's his 9am recitation, the woman who eschews DJs because they "miss the days when music was all made on real instruments." So how to cope? Our advice, below, on being an Anti-Flinger at Fling:
Okay, okay, okay, we KNOW Fling is coming up, you don't have to tell us. We're sure you know where you're pregaming, and where you're pregaming the pregame, so we'll focus this week's picks on NON-Fling events:
The 1st day of Spring may be around the corner, but warm weather is not yet in sight. Which means the age-old problem of what-do-I-do-with-my-jacket-at-social-events persists. Nowhere does this dilemma exist as much as it does at Smoke's, the humble abode of His Majesty Kweder, to whom we would walk 500 miles to see that Brown-Eyed Man.
The Drop deadline has passed, and since you have so much free time now, you can happily acquiesce to the demands of Locust flyer-ers and Facebook inviters alike. But what events should you go to? Which performing arts deserve your hard-earned Behavioral Lab 10 bucks? Here are our picks.
You're halfway to getting your name on a plaque in Smokes! Yay! Week 1 is past. Week 2 is over. You've been tagged in so many pictures of you holding a beer and being photobombed by a random girl who you kind of know because she was in a MEAM class with you but wasn't on your group project team but was on your friend's group project team but it was a big class so you're not sure that she recognizes you or means to be photobombing you but you made awkward eye contact so it's unclear what the situation is...and now you're ready to do it all again this week!
Greetings, Seniors! In case you missed free beer solicitations to join Seniors for the Penn Fund avoiding eye contact with your Freshman hookup Feb Club last week, check out what you missed here.
If (1) you're a Senior and (2) your Class Board emails automatically get sent to junk mail (we don't blame you), this one's for you.
Welcome back! Today's the day that professors let you out early, you actually make it to the gym, and your quad bathroom actually has toilet paper. Easy-breezy. Actually, make that easy-breezy-
On our way to office hours today, we spotted this slideshow presenting one Wharton professor's "research" about "The Productivity of Not Working." Unsurprisingly, no one was in the room, presumably not working hard...and being productive at it. We left before the audience showed up, but we suspect that the presenting professor decided that giving the presentation qualified as "working" – and immediately pulled out his phone to begin filling out a BuzzFeed quiz.
You saw the best costumes this morning, and we nearly peed our pants seeing these dudes playing dress-up. But as Penn students know too well, for every winner there's a loser, which is why we present you with this weekend's WORST costumes:
Hey, so remember that crazy Halloween event for charity last night? The one that blew up your newsfeeds for weeks and cost you $30+? Yeah, so like it happened, and people were not happy. Urine, injuries, lines--it all went down. See our recap from the event's Facebook comments below...
What to wear for Halloween? You can't bear to dress up as a sexy cat again, and sexy nurse is too damn pre-professional. Fear, not! Using campus as inspiration, UTB presents you with its Fall 2014 Costumer Guide:
Sign up for next semester's classes -- Advance registration on PennInTouch is now open, which means the quest for a schedule with no classes before 1:30pm has begun. Seniors, feel free to shed tears of sadness at your last course registration, and the rest of you feel free to shed tears of sadness at being stuck with Friday class (again).
This is our confession: At 10:46am today, USHER (allegedly) visited 40th and Walnut FroGro. And he used cash. The superstar is in Philly for an upcoming concert at the Wells Fargo Center, making us fall in love with him all over again.
Follow UTB's Day in the Life REALTALK -- As you lay in bed nursing your Tuesday morning hangover amidst an ever-encroaching pile of dirty laundry, click on over to our Instagram to see how Penn students just like you live A Day in the Life. You may be thrilled to discover that you're not the only one NOT casually tossing a Frisbee on College Green or discussing the Iliad with a pack of smiling racially-diverse friends. (And, if you're feeling inspired, send us some Fall pics here!)
Another Monday, another deluge of events to keep you busy when you're not, like, brainstorming costumes for Halloween.
With October 31st only 16 days away, we flash back this week to the Roaring Twenties, a time on campus when you could get into a party--erm, "Frolic"--with the above invitation, Hallowe'en was spelled with an apostrophe, DANCING sufficed as a party description, and all the rich kids went to West Egg for Fall Break. Oh, the good old days. Still not excited for next weekend? Grab your masques, and let's dance (in church) like it's 1923.
If you're like us and are pretty certain that the Schuylkill (sp?) River only runs between Walnut Street and the Art Museum, you're in for a surprise. Because starting today, there's a new boardwalk in the water near South Street Bridge. In other words,you can run along the River Trail
without leaving the River Trail!
When we're not using our Facebook feeds as a source of world news, we sometimes scan the headlines of the New York Times. The Grey Lady's 36 Hours in [insert city you hazily remember from your semester abroad] feature inspired us to appreciate what's in our own backyards. Read at your own risk: Huntsman is a crazy, crazy place.
