This week Street has some questions. Will it ever stop snowing? Should I have done laundry by now? And you live where? Street goes inside Gregory College House to meet the close group of students who call it home. Speaking of homes, explore more of campus with an Architectural Bucket List and switch up your playlist with tracks from Penn Musicians USSMars. Ego of the Week Jeremy Pincus even converted to Judaism while at Penn (didn’t we all?). In honor of those free t-shirts we get during NSO, we converted the College House motto’s into some serious real talk.
Food and Drink got inspired by sports, sort of, with herbacious Super Bowl recipes and some upgraded vodka recipes in honor of Olympic host Russia. Highbrow is here to tell you what’s in and what’s out while Lowbrow is seriously into #throwbackthursdays.
Not to be the bearer of bad news but next week is Valentine’s Day. Never fear because you can find love in a mere eight days. Go forth and tinder, Penn students.
Want to get involved in Street? Come to our writer’s meeting tonight, 6:30 PM at 4015 Walnut. We’ll be your valentines, xoxoxo.
Senior Superlatives are among us, and it’s time to single out Penn’s hottest, most scandalous, and most legendary (namely, the biggest sword award). So here’s another chance to shine bright like a diamond, and to avenge that senior society you were cut from (sweetie it’s not you, it’s them!).
With honors like Most Likely to Spend Post-Grad Nights Writing on CollegiateACB and Most Likely to Make A Million Dollars with their First Start-Up, there is truly an award for every
Wharton student at Penn.
