The ubiquitous office supplies store understands that life should be simple. It's even been the central mantra of their famous easy button marketing campaign. Though no such button exists to write cover letters for you -- if only! -- Staples has made the job/internship search just a little bit easier. Through June 13, participating stores are offering a "Career Stimulation Special": you can get 20 resumes and 40 business cards for free! Take advantage, because we're fairly sure resume paper makes up for any inadequacies.
Apparently the march didn't end at College Hall for some Hey Day-ers this past Friday. A search of Flickr reveals that a few rising Penn seniors were so excited -- or terrified -- about having one year left that they jumped into the Schuylkill from the Walnut Street Bridge. May their willingness to take the plunge hold strong in the face of their graduation next May!
This eye-catching sign is posted throughout the fine arts building. And it works -- we've witnessed people stopping and reading the posters. We're just glad the guys who work in the windowless basement of Addams can find the fun in it all!
It's a spoof on the Gift of the Magi scenario: Philadelphia's Barney's CO-OP has finally opened... just as the recession is making money tight, of course. Nevertheless, it's a huge boon to Philly fashionistas, who no longer have to trek to King of Prussia to find a decent department store. And it sure is pretty to look at! Here are the deets:
Come one, come all and be prepared to wait for a long time: it's free cone day at Ben & Jerry's! Our own campus shop is participating in the ice cream extravaganza, so enjoy the only day of the year when the line to enter Ben & Jerry's is longer than the one into Smoke's. Happy scooping!
You almost have to have a sense of humor to be in finance nowadays. As evidenced by this email, Wharton finance professor Luke Taylor--who our tipster noted is only 30 and thus understands the "Fling spirit"--certainly has just that.

University City's own Marigold Kitchen has been named the third best brunch spot in the country, according to Bon Appetit. No word on why the other U-City brunch mainstay, Rx, didn't make the cut, but here's why MK did:
Enjoying southern dishes (like a collard green and mushroom frittata; a Surry sausage and mushroom crepe; and stone-ground grits) in a converted Victorian home, you'd think you were somewhere in Dixie. But no: It's just Sunday at this lovely University City BYOB.
Even though the description is a little thin, we're delighted for Philly to get the recognition. But we know that students love their brunch, so have at it in the comments. Did Bon Appetit hit or miss the mark?
Though SPEC may only have official plans for Friday and Saturday, we all know this whole week is about Spring Fling. Which--who are we fooling?--really just means this week is about consuming copious amount of alcohol. But some of you might feel guilty taking that sixth shot of Absolut. Or maybe feel selfish for joining in the hedonism.
An awesome tipster pointed out to us that Penn gets a shoutout today on our favorite website of procrastination, Fmylife.com.
Penn is sneaky. A tipster forwarded us a lengthy email sent tonight to all students living in university housing, warning that spring fling bag checks will begin tomorrow. Of course, the email was sent at 10 PM -- in other words, after liquor stores are closed.
Since many Spring Fling events are held inside the Quad, no one may enter the Quad with any alcohol containers, sealed or unsealed, starting Friday, April 3. During official Fling hours, Friday & Saturday, 11am - 6pm, ONLY empty BEVERAGE CONTAINERS that are open will be allowed into the Quad.
We knew it was coming. Signs warning us of this impending doom began to appear at campus registers a few weeks ago. And today reality hits us: seniors, it is the last day we can use the wondrous privilege that is bursar.
As the video above tells you, Penn's own Fashion Week begins today. We'll forgive the over-the-top looks of unhappiness the models have because they did manage to get both Domenico De Sole AND Penn alum Tory Burch to grace our campus this week. Both are impressive catches by themselves, let alone together. And it doesn't hurt that a third of the audience at Domenico De Sole's address will probably be wearing Tory Burch flats. Check out the week's schedule after the jump.
It was, like, the best month ever at Penn: Homecoming and Halloween + the Phillies and Obama winning. Sure, the economy sucked then too, but we had HOPE. Not to mention that May and the stress that the job/internship hunt provokes seemed far from imminent. (Five weeks! Five weeks!)
Lloyd Dobler played a boom box outside Diane Court's window. Mr. Darcy saved the Bennets from embarrassment by getting Lydia properly married. And now Gmail is going great lengths to show it cares for us: we can finally undo sent emails.
I once spoke with ?uestlove at 30th Street Station; he asked me for the time. Though I can't say I've been curious about his life after that glorious moment passed, maybe you are. And now you can read his mind--well, 140-characters of it at a time--by following the Twitter of the Roots drummer. According to Philebrity, his handle is qoolquest.
Midterms bring out the ugly in all of us, and one of the ugliest of truths is that we feel compelled to suck up. You may not want to admit it - you may do it yourself and still hate others for doing it better than you - but regardless: when you're sitting the library for hours on end, feeling more and more disillusioned about your worth as a student, you undoubtedly feel the urge to accrue as many brownie points as possible. (Or is that just me?)
Penn Dining recently sent out an email ever-so-kindly pointing out meals to be had on-campus for under $6. (Which only makes the yearly meal plan push even harder to bite into.) I'm all for cheaper eats, but I do wonder what motivated the email. Is Subway concerned about our thinning wallets? Or has there been a drop-off in customers? But wouldn't a college campus provide a steady customer base, even amidst economic woes? Or -- gasp! -- have we begun cooking?
When seniors receive their $160,000 diplomas and SEO-based advice from our commencement speaker this May, five other notables will get honorary Penn degrees -- doctorates! -- for free. And we thought academia was the one place where "real world experience" didn't matter.
Van Pelt has finally implemented printers that can print double-sided! Not only does this save paper and lighten the load you have to carry, but it's cheaper too: one double-sided sheet costs 10 cents, and since each single-sided page is 8 cents, you're saving over a nickel per two pages printed. (Thank you Ideas in Mathematics.)
The timing is almost too perfect. Just as everyone is packing up and deserting campus for three-ish weeks of no class & no exams, one of our favorite Philly blogs, Philebrity, broke the sad news about our own Philadelphia International Airport (PHL): it has been titled the "Most Stressed Airport" in the US for 2008! We hate to be mean, but this does seem more fitting for a city known as "Killadelphia" than a World Series win.
