Love Is Not Blind
Who? Penn Chinese Theater
Where and When? Tonight at 7:30 at Ibrahim Theater in International House
Why? It’s their first ever show, so go out and support the new group. It definitely sounds dramatic.
Love Is Not Blind
But also, this stuff.
When & Where? Wynn Commons, Monday 6-7:30PM
Why? Um, hello! The theme is Throwback to the 90s! Don’t miss Dance Dance Revolution, inflatable Twister, 90s trivia, a photo booth, and the chance to win 2 floor passes for the Fling concert.
It’s April Fool’s, so we’re all hoping that Girl Talk is SPEC’s way of tricking the entire student body. They’re not. Anyway, today’s the nicest day we’ve seen all year and it’s time to prep for the mess that will be Fling 2k13. In the meantime, find space to squeeze some of these events into your calendar for this week!
Relay For Life
Who? Relay For Life
When and where? Friday, April 5 at 7 p.m. at Franklin Field

Well, it’s the last full week of March, although Weather.com might indicate otherwise. Time is FLYING, Quakerz! So don’t get burnt out, because Penn is a-bustlin’ with events galore. Maybe your midterms are done! Maybe the Fling headliner will be announced! Two-thirds of the student body is likely in tech week for the myriad of performances happening this upcoming weekend. Let’s take a look at what’s going down on campus before the arrival of April and all its alcoholism.
Who? Student Sustainability Association at Penn (SSAP)
When and where? Ongoing everywhere, through Greenfest on Friday
Why? Environmentalism is sexy and the green lovin’ doesn’t end with St. Paddy’s Day
Who? Hillel (obvi)
When and where? Hillel, tonight through the rest of PESACH
Why? God parted the red seas to help Moses lead the Jews to Israel (you can read about it in the Bible), so Passover is a BFD – class cancellations are not uncommon. Celebrate with seders tonight and tomorrow and something called Mega Shabbat on Friday, with performances by the Shabbatones and Bloomers
St. Paddy’s has come and gone; your head is a pain-bundle, your one green shirt is ruined. Here’s Monday, with its snow/sleet combo, to kick you in the shins. But fear not! There’s lots of great Penn things this week, so turn those lemons into yellow Gatorade and get back in the game!
Who? Penn’s LGBTQA community
When and where? All week, lots of places!
Why? One of the things that makes Penn great is how gay we are. Celebrate it this week! At least give them credit for the pun.
Who? Penn’s Orthodox Jewish Community
When and where? Tuesday, Bodek Lounge in Houston Hall
Why? Get a manicure from the pros without leaving campus, and support Breast Cancer research at the SAME TIME
We get that it’s basically Monday night and What’s HaPENNing is basically 1/7 irrelevant now, but did you complete all your post-spring break homework on time? We didn’t think so. Did you even get out of bed today? We didn’t think so. To the events!
Who? Undergraduate Sports Business Marketing Club, Black Wharton, and MUSE

Another Monday. Funday Monday, right? Wrong. Mondays suck and we all hate them, so let’s just be clear: most of us probably have [multiple] midterms this week and it’s likely that we’ll all gain weight and get [b]acne. Been there, done that, yawn, sigh. In the meantime, check what’s going on at a Penn near you!

Student-Athlete Talent Show
Who: Penn athletes
When and where: Today, 8 p.m.; The Palestra
