This time of year is about being the best. Best in your class, best formal date, best internship, best first warm day outfit. At Street, we always look for the best…so we can share it with you.
This week, we are proud to present this year’s Best of Penn, from the best wax (useful) to the best place to get down, the best use for bursar (it may surprise you) and many more. Share the best part of your day with us on instagram using #bestofpenn and help us make the last few weeks the best they can be.
Do you want more?
Duh, you’re the best of the best. Food and Drink has the best things to eat in Philadelphia, Arts has the best artsy dates for you and your boo. Backpage has alumni superlatives. Film has the best Penn shoutouts from the small screen. As you craft your finals playlist, check out best and worst lyrics. Ego has an Ego with a lot to say. You’ll want to read this. They also have the worst of Penn, because it’s not all roses. Find your new favorite holiday as Lowbrow combines Passover, Easter and 4/20. The best Round Up always comes after fling.
Come to our final writer’s meeting of the year. It may be the best yet. 6:30 pm @ 4015 Walnut.
Oh hey didn’t see you there, guess what Street just did? We made a fashion issue.
Our hump day treat for you is a issue packed with relevant and stylish content. We’ll help you dress well on a budget, remind you that black is the new black, and find the best outfits at Piper Boutique or at one of Philadelphia’s best vintage stores.
See a style retrospective of our dear Amy Gutmann’s fashion decisions and get fashion tips for this long awaited season we call spring from your stylish peers. Are they sceney? You bet.
Celebrate our first fashion issue tonight from 5-9 at Piper Boutique. All merchandise is 10% off and there will be a DJ and some live mannequins (aka models). Come hang with us to discuss clothes (or fling tanks and Penn apparel), chest hair, the How I Met Your Mother finale and the coolest glasses to rock in your recitation.
We’re back with the winners of our fiction contest. Read about an unconventional couple’s journey around Ikea and show some love to our poetry winner and a runner up. We even have an online exclusive: our most experimental submission.
Get ready for the final months of the semester with some perspective on your freshmen hall. Get your weekly dose of judgement as Highbrow raises a brow. Get off campus with yoga at the PMA (we bet Rocky can’t downward dog). Catch a concert at one of Philly’s coolest venues.
We know How I Met Your Mother’s ending is an emotional time for everyone, so seek solace in new foods. Durian’s a challenge for the tastebuds, but you may love it. If laughter is the best medicine, you’ll be chuckling at Lowbrow’s AMA with Dean Furda. He’s really excited about the class of 2018.
Weigh in on the Best of Penn in our annual survey. Opinions encouraged.
As always, we’ll be looking for writers, friends and photographers tonight at our writers’ meeting. Join the party 6:30 p.m at 4015 Walnut.
Midterms aside, it’s your lucky week because there’s a double dose of Street.
This week, we spent some time with the Orthodox Community at Penn. L’Chaim! On the backpage, hear Penn students of all faiths get real about what they believe.
We are all so over winter but are you the most over it? Play a game of Ego’s Winter Bullshit Bingo. We’re hoping it warms up soon for a walk downtown to sample Chinatown’s best bites and check out Philadelphia’s coolest street art.
On the silly side, Highbrow got a Tinder, would you swipe right? PennAlert: Backpage spoofs the DPS. Music has no shame about loving some nonsensical songs and we’ve got Oscar picks straight from Ben Franklin and Amy Gutmann (*we wish*). Watch the Oscars with us this Sunday, we’ll be live blogging.
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.

Our Ego of the Week, Rosie Brown, is seriously adorkable. Food & Drink brings you some intense donut making skills and a review of Federal Donuts. Can you say ‘doh?

So many restaurants on campus make us sick. The bad kind of stomach sick you only want to get after a long night of boozin’.
But fear not dear foodies, Street‘s here to cleanse your bowels… and brighten your appetite with the Dining Guide.
We’ve got reviews, listings and some definite food porn.
Pick it up on stands inside the DP today.
Street‘s back this week with an inside peak at the noticeable rise in Molly usage among Penn students. Check out what’s been going down at DayGlow and those Deadmau5 concerts here.
