Fall is officially upon us, and you know what that means! Yup, screenings of “Hocus Pocus,” hot chocolate before bed, dewy nips in the morning– you gotta love it, you just have to! But it’s also a time to be as social and out-and-about as possible before it gets too cold and you start repeating ad nauseum, “Oh no, friends, I can’t go out, I need to study because an A+ in Econ001 is my key to success.” So get out there, kiddos!

Why: It’s an interesting lecture entitled “Lying Your Way to the Truth”! And it’s only 15 minutes long! You can let your friend Addy take a break for a while (and play Neopets. For five hours. Five. Hours. Of. Neo. Pets.) and give your brain a smart snack for a change.
The Secret Life of Van Pelt Library

When and where: Friday, 2-5 p.m.; Van Pelt Research Consultation Area (1st Floor)
Why: The secret life of Van Pelt? OMG, so much drama. Did you know VP is “magical and mysterious”?! We definitely didn’t, although it was mysterious when someone stole our Tamagotchis when were napping on the 4th floor. (Seriously, not cool, guys, give them BACK.) In any case, Van Pelt is opening its doors for a whirlwind adventure and a “game of discovery” that you won’t want to miss!

In all honesty, you’ll probably get a good laugh from every group, but Penn’s most criminally under-appreciated funny peeps will be there, so strap on your chuckle harnesses! Don’t ever say the phrase “chuckle harness” in public.
