Keep sending us your entries for our Fling Floor Pass Contest! Remember: they can be ANYTHING creative: a song, a dance, a poem, a video, a piece of art … whatever your personal interpretation of Fling is, bring it on! Just send it in to us by Monday.
When we first heard that the Penn Bookstore was giving away coffee from 12-2 p.m. on Locust we were all, “whatever, people give away shit on Locust all the time.” But then we walked past their table and the bros there were so amusing we not only got our coffee, but recommend that others do as well. Apparently they’re running some social media contest for the bookstore but like, who cares. They’re cute.
February begins tomorrow, and so Feb Club does too. If you are a Senior and you want in, go pick up your Feb Club card before 3pm today or between 11am-3pm tomorrow, outside the Office of Student Affairs (200 Houston Hall). You’ll have to prove your Senior status, so don’t forget your Penn Card. Also, look forward to a breakdown of Feb Club and all its events this Thursday in Street!
What’s HapPENNing is Under the Button’s newest feature in which we showcase the good, the bad and (mostly) the fugly of what’s going on during the upcoming week at Penn. This post has been brought to you by events@penn and the wild and crazy student groups on campus.
Ben Franklin’s Bar Mitzvah
Who: The Freshmensches
When and where: Thursday, 8-10 p.m.; ARCH auditorium
WTF: Isn’t Ben already, like, kinda old? Like, really old? I mean, we’ll come because we love middle school dances, but do we have to bring a present?
According to one of the million Fox Leadership emails we receive, there will be a screening of ”Food Fight” tonight at 5pm in College Hall 200. After a (FREE) showing of the film, attendees will get to meet and chat with director Chris Taylor, who actually gets by in life with a college degree in Folklore, as well as nom on some (FREE) snacks.
The film takes a Michael Moore-esque look at America’s food industry, pointing out everything that’s wrong and unhealthy about it. Let’s hope it doesn’t cause us to lose our appetites just before the (FREE) refreshments are served.
Oh, kids and their college decisions. A brief article came out this week in a local CT paper about why a high school senior chose UConn over (U)Penn. Though the author claims her decision was based on the overall price tag, obviously her choice didn’t take Penn’s most important qualities into account: constant free food (free food. free food.) and occasional free exercise to burn it all off. Plus, Philly is definitely ill compared to anywhere in Connecticut.
But on the realz, we do feel for her. The cost of a Penn education is prohibitive to many so let’s all take a moment to thank whatever higher being we believe in (A-Gut?) for allowing us to toast to dear old Penn, or if you’re talking money, perhaps dear old Ben.
Attention fitness gurus and lazy asses alike: all group exercise classes at Pottruck at completely FREE through July 2nd. If you have a valid PennID on hand (recent grads, we think this still includes you), just waltz right in and take a trial run of that Body Pump class you’ve been too stingy to indulge in. If you’re the more aggressive type, we suggest taking the next step to Body Blitz, and if that doesn’t do it for you, try BODY COMBAT! Spinning is also being offered, which (we hear) is great if you’re a mom. Check out the full class listings and schedule here.
