Some students define themselves by the clubs they’re part of. Not so with Anna May (E ‘19). Upon entering Penn, she knew that the Squirrel Protection Society (SPS) would be her home for the four years to come.
In times like these, it’s important to remind yourself that the world is still a fundamentally beautiful place. Just consider the inspirational story of Sam Kardar (C '20).

Right after accepting the Class of 2022, the Penn administration dropped a policy bombshell: starting this fall, all incoming freshmen will have state-of-the-art air conditioners installed directly on their persons. Incredible!
Look, I get it. You’ve wanted to be a doctor your whole life, and Harvard Med doesn’t care much for sub-3.9 GPA-types. You’re not going to let a little thing like Organic Chemistry get in the way of your hopes and dreams.
Winston Drake (E ‘21) is still getting used to the whole “college” thing. After finally figuring the right way to slide a PennCard through a scanner and getting a grip on how much laundry detergent was enough, the budding engineer really thought he had it all figured out.
As Penn students, we pride ourselves on taking advantage of the resources that an interdisciplinary education at a top university provides. It’s easy to forget just how pervasive this culture is, and you really have to admire people who fearlessly break the mold.

Everyone’s getting really worked up these days about Elon Musk’s (W ’97, C '98) big rocket hobby. Sure, I have to admit that putting a car in space is pretty cool and all, but come on. One Quaker to another, we have to admit that there are things more impressive than that.
We all know that Penn professors tend to do some strange things in their classes and on their exams, but their endeavors outside of class are sometimes equally perplexing. Take a look at some recent PURM postings from professors who are clearly having a tough semester:
In a deeply unsettling statement released earlier today, Penn’s administration collapsed before the will of the student body and suspended university operations for Thursday.
Clara Williams (E ‘18) has been giving campus tours for the past three years. As per regulations, she is mandated to gush about clubs she has not met with in years, wax poetic about famous visiting speaker events which she’s never bothered to attend, and lead her group into a mad sprint the moment they risk catching sight of DRL.
If you met Archibald Wesley IV (W ‘20) on Locust, you might think of him as an earnest, if uptight, young man.
Look. We know the Penn administration has a ways to go before they earn our love and trust. But we have to appreciate how much they try to win us over.

I’m a simple man. I eat three square meals a day, I do my homework, and I always wear snow boots after November. I know my limits.
Maurice Lewis has been a pillar of the Penn Anthropology department for nearly half a century. While he has no desire to quit his dream job, even he admits that the years are creeping up on him.
Trump’s been having a rough year. With an administration bogged down by scandal, horrifically low approval ratings, and a media that just can’t seem to get off his back, the poor guy really just needs a couple victories under his belt.
