Happy Hey Day! (Cue Juniors freaking out and Seniors weeping silently). But this 1932 photo of the then-dubbed Cane March looks more like a funeral procession than a celebration. Maybe it’s because they knew Penn didn’t come up with the idea for Hey Day to begin with! That’s right, our precious celebration was originally modeled after a similar idea at Syracuse University. But it also has evolved from a formal ceremony honoring the advancement of each class to a parade of raucous debauchery. Hats off for another reason to get drunk and procrastinate!
Fact of Penn life: if you make eye contact with anyone on Locust, you’re getting a flyer stuffed in your hand. At least you have a good supply of emergency notepads/paper planes/places to throw your gum? Luckily some of us actually read the flyers for you. All we have to say is GET YO EARS AND STOMACHS READY.

This is the pool room of the old chapter house of Penn’s Phi Kappa Psi. Though Phi Psi has lived on Spruce since 1977 , this building sits at 3641 Locust and was built when all of Locust was still a street! Now the building is the Colonial Penn Center, home of the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (that’s not Greek). This photo was taken just after the building was completed in 1905 (obviously they had to snap a classy picture before stuff like this or this could happen).
This just in, our in-high-demand Locust Flaikus were sabotaged today. We have eye-witness reports that Locust Walk suffered a new kind of infestation: ART VENDORS. Only one flyer survived the madness, so it looks like they win these Hunger Games.

Happy Thursday, y’all! Have no fear–Locust Flaikus is here. Even though it ain’t the weekend yet, we’re ready to celebrate a little early, because there’s just so much to do on campus.
And since we know the reason you didn’t grab these flyers yourselves is because you were too busy rushing to class (not), we’ve got you covered.

Celebrities: they’re just like us. When she’s not busy ruling the world/being fabulous/rubbing elbows with the equally fabulous, Amy Gutmann takes time to hang with mere muggles! Pictured here is A-Gutt taking her three adorable dogs for a walk down Locust this past weekend. Sporting a bright, white coat and some kickin’ running shoes, Amy proves that it is possible to look totally chic carrying a Pooper-Scooper.
PSA -- Locust Walk is slippery, y'all. Even if you have to be a hated slow walker, be careful! Make like a figure Sk8er, boi.
As fun as it is to stroll down picturesque Locust Walk during the holiday season, we must warn our dear readers to be careful. Countess the Hawk of Locust is back with a vengeance, this time striking a diva pose outside Joe’s Cafe. Just look how clear she is in this terrifyingly un-Photoshopped photo from a tipster! Everyone in the Penn community (especially one Madame President, out and about) must beware of the wrath of the Locust Hawk.
