Celebrities: they’re just like us. When she’s not busy ruling the world/being fabulous/rubbing elbows with the equally fabulous, Amy Gutmann takes time to hang with mere muggles! Pictured here is A-Gutt taking her three adorable dogs for a walk down Locust this past weekend. Sporting a bright, white coat and some kickin’ running shoes, Amy proves that it is possible to look totally chic carrying a Pooper-Scooper.
Want to be among the first to change your prof pic to include Amy G this holiday season? Come to Hillel at 5PM TONIGHT to light candles with the President herself.
It’s no secret
santa that she does this every year (no, we didn’t Photoshop the pic to the right), but this year’s event includes the–gasp!–Shabbatones and raffle (drawn by, you guessed it, Madame) for Matisyahu’s Philly concert on Wednesday night.
For a double shot of non-denominational holiday fun, walk four feet down the block to her sometimes house, where the annual party will feature enough desserts to give you a sugar high that’ll last you through Final’s Week.
Consider this your formal and hand-delivered invitation to Amy Gutmann’s annual holiday study break this Monday. Dress in nines (or your library chicest) and stop by dear old Amy’s house for what she deems “a well-deserved” break. She obviously doesn’t know we’ve spent Reading Days so far reading this and trying to beat this.
[Disclaimer: This post was part of our Joke Day series. Didn't the font tip you off?] We all love Madame President, but she is now and forever Amy G(odmother)! Pippa’s out. A-Gut was spotted across the pond having tea and crumpets with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to get final approval on becoming the godmother of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s baby-to-be! While Amy’s BFF Joe Biden might be upset she’s flirting with other (monarchical) governments, we couldn’t be more thrilled the Royal Fetus will be nurtured by the blonde beauty who nurtures our school on a daily basis. They better name him/her Amy.
Next step: Amy, Duchess of Cambridge. God save the Prez!
More like a “Oh, well, F Halloween” non-Halloween-but-still-on-Halloween reception. Check out our live tweet tonight for the scoop on the event.
We’re not surprised, but we’re still filled with the Penn pride that Amy G revels in on a daily basis. Glassdoor has released its list of most popular college presidents, and who is the pièce de résistance? The crème de la crème? The reigning queen bee? A-GUTT!
Madame President received a 100 percent approval rating, tying for first place with the presidents of Yale, University of Maryland and Stanford – all men, none blonde…yawn. The survey asked employees if they approved of how their president was leading, to which the university community undoubtedly performed a choreographed dance number singing Amy’s praises. A-Gutt has truly made Penn the Plastics of college life and it couldn’t be fetcher.
Oh, Madame President. We might have thought you couldn’t get any more glamorous and universally beloved, but The Philadelphia Inquirer‘s latest lengthy feature on you has proven us wrong. That’s right, a big new article is singing A-Gutt’s praises and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Detailing the many accomplishments of Amy G’s “golden” tenure and looking towards the future (contract extended ’til 2019!), the piece both confirms what we knew and illuminates more of Amy’s majestic qualities.

Commoners and barista snobs alike were wowed this afternoon by a surprise visit from Lady Gutmann. You treat yourself, Madame President! Can you even imagine the headache of having to welcome 2,465 fresh sacks of $56,000 meat to Penn? And she pulls it off so gracefully, too! Just look at all that sweet and delicate…
A-Gutt is helping enrich the Penn community once again. This time, it’s in a very unique and powerful way. Over 50,000 video testimonials from Holocaust survivors have been added to Penn’s library system and will be available to the public. The testimonials were collected by the Shoah Foundation Institute at University of Southern California, which was founded in 1994 by legendary director Steven Spielberg. The testimonials are in over 30 languages and many interviewees have since passed away.
Penn is the first university in the state to offer this expansive collection. As a college student, Amy’s father fled Nazi Germany in 1934. As she told Philly.com, “I see this as a way of continuing not only to remember the past but to learn from it.”
A ceremony formally announcing the opening of the archives took place yesterday at Annenberg. We’re truly honored to house such an important collection of moving interviews. Thank you, Madame President!
A recent Times Style feature details the– what else?– stylistic and political choices of Jeremy Bernard, the Obama administration’s social planner, as he sets up the White House’s upcoming state dinner. Who’s among those 806 invitees? Oh, is it you, Amy? It is! Except Any Gutmann? Eh, silly typo. We’ll let it slide this time.
Take us as your date, Any! We make great conversation about blogs, Penn, cats and the Interwebs. Or if you don’t want us to talk and just sit there and look pretty, we’re really good at that too.
