​Things We Should Do All Year, Not Just During Sorority Recruitment

(01/18/17 7:25pm)

Arguably, sorority recruitment is no one's favorite 6 days of the year. When considering other annual highlights such as the first 6 days of Hannukah, shark week, or even the last 6 days of finals when you're stuck on campus because you have one exam on December 22nd, it's obvious that rush pales in comparison. However, recruitment has many unique and valuable qualities that, quite frankly, go unappreciated. Instead of practicing these traditions only once a year, we should never stop:

After 2 Years, Penn Football Captures 5/6 Of The Ivy League Championship

(11/21/16 4:12pm)

In case you didn’t hear, Penn Football beat Cornell 42-20 this past weekend, bringing their record to a solid 6-1— that one loss being the Penn-Princeton game that you definitely didn’t go to. More importantly, it meant that they clinched the Ivy League Championship for the second year in a row. Exciting?! Well, kind of.

Mark Ruffalo Cancelled And Now We Don't Know Who To Vote For

(11/02/16 10:03pm)

Unless you totally live under a rock, you knew that Mark Ruffalo (The Incredible Hulk, social activist, and all-around DILF) was supposed to speak on campus for Penn Democrats tomorrow-- until he cancelled on us. In his defense, he abandoned us in order to go to Standing Rock, to aid those protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline, but we're still disappointed that he isn't coming. Mark Ruffalo was just what Hillary needed to secure Penn's votes-- now, how do we know she's the right choice?

Hillel is Throwing a Launch Party for a Gender-Neutral Bathroom

(10/20/16 4:14pm)

Want to celebrate tonight but don't know where to go? Well now you do! Hillel is opening their first ever gender-neutral bathroom-- and they're throwing a launch party for it. To be honest, we're not quite sure what a bathroom launch party looks like. There seems to be a "tasting," which might be a little concerning (will there be urinal cakes?), but regardless we expect it to be the #wokest party tonight. Here's to more gender-neutral bathrooms -- and pregaming opportunities-- on campus!

Listerv Hacked by "Daddy DeTurck"

(09/08/16 9:57pm)

Another day, another listserv scandal! We'll set the scene for you: it's the second week of classes and you're taking The American South, trying to fulfill your History & Tradition sector AND the Cultural Diversity in the US requirement (nice steal). Then, you get an e-mail addressed to your entire class from your favorite College dean/math professor. Daddy DeTurck's message? He just wants everyone to know that he Thinks Topology is Fucking Good. And we'd definitely agree, if we actually knew what Topology was.

Alternative Fling Gear: How to Prepare for Every Weather Scenario

(04/14/16 9:55pm)

Spring fling is tomorrow (officially, at least), and although SPEC has kindly informed us that the weather is predicted to be pretty dang good, we know to expect the unexpected. Heck, it snowed last week and has been raining on and off ever since, so who knows what will happen in the next 24 hours. That's why we've put together a comprehensive guide on what you can wear no matter what comes up.

Penn Museum Throwing it Waaay Back By Hosting 90s Game Show Rager

(04/01/16 2:46pm)

Nostalgia alert! On Wednesday April 20th, the Penn Museum will be answering our personal call to bring back the 90s by organizing their own version of Nickelodeon's Legends of the Hidden Temple. If you happen have no idea what the show is (it originally aired from 1993 to 1995, after all), Legends of the Hidden Temple was a game show based on the Indiana Jones movies, in which pre-teens competed in a series of physical and mental tasks that took place inside a "Mayan temple." Despite some high-key cultural appropriation, the show definitely deserved more than its two-year run, and now the Penn museum is giving it a one-day revival-- but only for adults ;)
