For those of you who are not incarcerated in Van Pelt for the next week and a half (we hate you), you can venture to President Gutmann’s Holiday Party tonight. Her socialite assistant, Leah Popowich, sends these details:
President Gutmann’s Holiday Party!
Monday, December 8th, 2008
President’s House, 3812 Walnut Street
Come for great food and a study break!
Don’t forget your Penn ID!
The party seems innocuous enough; a study break almost guarantees the absence of anything remotely scandalous, and there should be food, which is enough of a draw for most of us. Even so, wouldn’t it make sense to hold a “study break” closer to where the majority of our study space is located? I know it’s too cold to hold the event in Perelman Quadrangle like is done on Halloweeen, but I think next year Gut-Gut should explore options like Houston or Meyerson. And maybe we’re being picky, but couldn’t they have come up with a more professional-looking flyer? The days of designing on Microsoft Word are long gone.
…And sudddenly, a study break seems more and more necessary.
If you attend, let us know how it went in the comments.
