Still recovering from this weekend? Yeah, us too, but what better way to continue all the sudden school spirit then to attend the State of the School taking place tomorrow at 8 p.m in the Penn Museum.
Now’s your chance to speak with Penn Student Government about what has or hasn’t been accomplished so far and plans that PSG has for the future. Did we mention that there will be *free* food?
Don’t worry– this fancy schmancy event is for us mere peasants to attend. All you have to do is RSVP here. Free food in fancy rooms, ample heckling opportunities. The only thing better would be a surprise visit by Madame President!
Excuse our punny headline, but we were just so impressed that the 2013 Class Board is putting on something legitimately cool. Free dinners! At Stephen Starr restaurants! And a meet and greet! With Stephen Starr! Well done, folks. See? We don’t hate you allthetime.
Any sophomores interested in signing up for a dinner at one of eight Starr restaurants can enter the lottery here, or read the full details of the two events after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »
In case you missed State of the School last night (how you could is beyond us), the poor Student Activities Committee wasn’t able to show their video about what they do. So they’re sharing their story with the world. Whether or not you cared about the people in the other student government videos, this one’s pretty well done and kind of funny!
Man, if you thought free Penngineer food was cool, wait until you see free voting food! From 2-5 p.m. on the Compass, there will be mad grub for everybody who walks by. Also, there’s a chance to win Fling floor passes. What up, Snoop!
DJ Rico (the guy with the awesome hair) will be spinning beats, so at the very least your trek down Locust will have some background music.
The catch? The NEC (the kids running the elections) wants you to pay attention to the fact that there are student elections. And maybe even vote in them. Considering the rivetingdrama and action that’s been going down, we think that shouldn’t be too hard… but we could use some food just in case.
This development caused us to do some deep soul-searching. If the freshmen can have a class website, are there others too? What kind of mystery lies within the Class Board-osphere?
Lucky for you, we bravely ventured into this digital unknown to bring all you need to know about these hidden gems. Our meaninglesspoint system is back in full glory after the jump; now that the Olympics are over, it’s the most exciting competition ever! Read the rest of this entry »
Are you down with bureaucracy? Posters? Unfulfilled promises? If any of these things appeal to you, go figure out how to run for office on the Nomination and Election Committee’s website. Seriously. The rest of us will be anxiously waiting for the great Awkward Video Battle, so don’t disappoint.
Just kidding! Did we scare you just like that great viral marketing campaign Penn Student Government enacted yesterday? Well, even if you didn’t care were too busy to go tonight, we dropped by the State of the School for the free food. They didn’t answer the button question we may or may not have posted on the town hall website, but they promised to have all questions answered in the next few weeks online. SPEC continued its love for fests by announcing plans for Love Fest next semester. NEC commented on our amazing coverage of the freshman elections. SAC cheered and the freshman class board rapped (NSOver Again? NSO there!). The UA reminded us to vote for the referendum and announced that starting next week, Mark’s Café will be open until 2 a.m. seven days a week with the late-night menu additions of hot dogs and “fiddlestix.” If they’re anything like this, we’re in. If they’re not, we’re in. Get the Van Party started!
