The wee hours of the morning in Huntsman Hall may trick your brain into seeing a mirage, but this is one possibly-Photoshopped image that you won’t be able to get out of your head: a naked woman standing on the Forum steps.
If you’re thinking this must be a money-making scheme, you’re not so far from the truth. Senior in the Huntsman Program Sarah Meyohas launched a website tonight, businessnude, to sell postcards with NSFW (Not Safe For Wharton) photos of classmate Danielle Swanner posing nude in JMHH.
Each souvenir is yours for only $5 (or $15 for the whole collection), assuming you gain access to the password-protected site (hint: getnaked).
Between spamming listservs, changing her cover photo, and posting in the Class of 2013 Facebook group, Sarah is trying to go viral. In her words, “The project is about distribution, its currency as image, especially material.” Huh?
We’re sort of speechless. All we have to say Sarah (and Danielle) is…add us on Snapchat?
Jon M. Huntsman, Jr. has something to say about gay marriage, and it’s not what one might expect from such a prominent conservative. In an article he wrote on TheAmericanConservative.com, Huntsman takes a critical look at what today’s conservatism stands for. More importantly, he takes a stand on marriage equality:
Today we have an opportunity to do more: conservatives should start to lead again and push their states to join the nine others that allow all their citizens to marry. I’ve been married for 29 years. My marriage has been the greatest joy of my life. There is nothing conservative about denying other Americans the ability to forge that same relationship with the person they love.
Huntsman also discusses marriage equality in the realm of religion. He makes the point that religious institutions will not be forced by the state to recognize gay marriage, reinforcing the prominence and importance of the separation of church and state.
Great work, Jon Jr. Does this mean we can put Safe Space stickers on the front doors of Huntsman Hall?
And just like that, the two Au Bon Pains (Aux Bons Pains?) in Huntsman were cleared out this week to make room for the new farm-to-fork cafés arriving in August. “Not enough selection and long lines,” Wharton said of the fast-casual eatery. “Why does this egg sandwich taste like kitty litter?” we asked of the often disappointing lunch spot.
In closing, Comic Sans is probably not the way you want to be remembered, ABP.
And they’re putting it on Twitter for the rest of us to laugh at. In the vain of Overheard and @CondeElevator, some enterprising students launched @HuntsmanGSR, your window into the outrageous, sometimes disturbing, and mostly ‘WTF?’-inducing words of tomorrow’s business leaders who have probably been cooped up in those suffocating rooms for longer than would be considered healthy by 4 out of 5 physicians.
Check out some of the best Tweets after the jump:
Well, there goes all hope of having a POTUS from Penn (at least for 2012). According to ABC News, Jon Huntsman is giving up his bid for the Republican Presidential nomination because he “did not want to stand in the way” of Mitt Romney’s chances of beating Obama. The New Hampshire third-place finisher is now the fourth GOP candidate to drop out since the campaigns began.
We’d like to take this time to remind Huntsman that his next career move could start with OCR. Fancy a visit back to Penn, Jon?
Jon Huntsman was in a band! Yeah! A big hair, wailing guitar, “eff da man” garage band! Huntsman appeared on Letterman last night and feigned discomfort when David pulled out a photo of the presidential hopeful glaring under a mane of tangled locks among his bandmates. Jon eventually got himself up to the task of playing some hotel lobby standards (You know, jazzy chord progressions and glissandos), and it was all pretty charming. Why weren’t the girls there to accompany him?
We love caption contests. We also (secretly) love Whartonites. Caption contests and Whartonites together? That’s GOLD
man Sachs, baby. We present to you UTB’s official photo recap of Winter Whartonland 2011, a gingerbread-house decorating, snowflake-snogging study break that went down last Thursday in Huntsman’s Baker Forum. Check out all photos (with captions!) after the jump, plus one without a caption we want YOU to make up for us.

Sick of hitting up all your usual campus hangouts (GSRs, VP, the basement bathroom of Fisher Fine Arts, etc.)? Trying to avoid all those adorable, hyperventilating freshmen before finals? Well, dudes, today is your lucky day.
This week’s Secret Spot is in–er, surrounded by–Huntsman. Easily hidden by PPT-induced misery and tunnel vision, Koo Plaza is home to numerous benches, tables and grassy knolls (you know, so you can eat your lunch exposed to this precious weather we’ve been having). Also hidden in this secret garden is an ivy-covered trellis, which, hel-LO, is practically begging you to propose (to your MGMT100 TA).
True, the Plaza may not be an ideal place to actually get shit done, but it does function as a nice escape from the sea of life-sucking pantsuits otherwise crawling around Huntsman. Check it out next time you get a chance, and, if you’re feeling extra generous, let us know if you’ve got any Secret
sex Spots of your own.
