UTB After Dark: A Reply-All Lesson For Freshmen

reply all imageChecking emails? We’re with ya. Like, we get it. You really need to swipe down and refresh your Mail app mid-date Night, mid-lecture, mid-sex – all the time – because you’re so important and get, like, hundreds of emails per hour. Fine.

But when it comes to responding to emails? How about a little tact? We’re talking to you, trigger-happy frosh, who shamelessly threw anonymity and Googleability right out the window last night.

In case you’re not on the College House First Year Residents listserv (a happening place), or if you don’t happen to be in possession of a First Year Resident’s email login info (because that’d be illegal), you probably missed waking up this morning to 72 unread pieces of listserv spam.

It started innocently enough with a call for nominations for the 2014 College House Deans Integrated Knowledge Award, granted to the select few residents whose “activities and participation have directly benefitted their own College House.” We’re talking the kid who tried to make weekly hall lunches a thing. The only barriers to winning? You need two references in support of your candidacy. And that’s when all hell broke loose. Click to see the damage!

The Sexiest Horse On Campus Is Where?

cute preggo horse @ penn vetCourtesy of Penn Vet comes the most voyeuristically creepy-but-cute live-stream we’ve ever seen. It’s Pixar movie meets Miracle of Life–right here at Penn!

Pregnant horse My Special Girl is in the middle of a 340-day (!!!) gestation period, and from the comfort of your GSR, you can watch her eat, sleep, and walk around–basically a Jewish horse mother’s wet dream. Tune in at an odd hour, though, and you may find the pen empty. But you may get lucky and catch some ultrasound footage!

Catch all the action here!
