The Washington Post published an article yesterday which explains how college students who go to school in Philly, stay in Philly. We aren’t quite sure why this is relevant to WaPo, which is a DC publication, but Penn got a shoutout so we’ll take it. The author says that according to a recent Philly poll, “ill” residents want recently graduated students to stay for business purposes. He also calls students who stay in their college towns “parasites”. Philly is hoping to become a parasitic city (that would be a sweet band name) and we as Penn students are the parasites. So basically what we gather from this is that if we stay in Philly after we graduate, we become a statistic. Hmm.
