Everyone on campus is totally into Foursquare now, and those behind Greek Week are no exception. In the past, it was enough to just go to the events, but here in the new millennium much more is at stake– foursquare mayorships! Seven signs at events give participants seven chances to become mayor of Greek Week activities; even better, that’s seven chances to earn a $25 gift card to Sweetgreen.
Do you think this will work? Will
geeds independents find a way to sneak into the competition? Personally, we think the winners should be called “Emperors,” being Greek and all.
Barukh atah Adonai...
Sadly, there don’t seem to be any events involving <3ing the female orgasm this week, but there’s still plenty going on around campus, especially if you’re Jewish or Greek.
Rosh Hashanah began Monday at sundown and services continue today and tomorrow. Hillel’s got the scoop on times and locations for reform, conservative and orthodox services. How inconvenient is it, by the way, when you realize that none of your Jewish friends are the same denomination as you? Best to befriend a wide array of Jews to avoid this issue in the future.
On top of the high holiday festivities, this week is also Greektober Fest. Last night was Greek Bowling at Strikes, today is a Greek Blood Drive (because Greek blood is the most virile!), Friday is a Greek Powderpuff football game, and Sunday is a Greek Academic Bowl emceed by Amy Gutmann’s right-hand-woman and Penn’s resident socialite Leah Popowich. The full calendar is here.
Not Greek or Jewish? The ICA welcomes one and all at Penn First Wednesdays, at 7 p.m. on October 1st, FREE with Penncard! There will be free coffee, desserts, a meet-and-greek with artist Odili Donald Odita and a performance by DJ Spooky. More details here.
