Last week, Penn undergraduates received a strongly-worded email from Provost Wendell Pritchett, urging them to socially distance not only physically, but virtually: “Any student, student organization, or group of students found to be congregating on campus, or off campus, or on Animal Crossing: New Horizons, will face immediate intervention by Penn Police.”

In high school, Robinson even built his own homemade vibrators and sold them to girls unsatisfied with their boyfriends, displaying a technical ingenuity and business acumen that made him a perfect candidate for the M&T program.
