Spotted: a Penn shirt for sale in a Pittsburgh (wtf) Old Navy. Although it’s apparently part of their new Sports Tees collection, we can’t find this anywhere on the internet. Not a huge loss, though, because $19.50 seems a bit steep for a place that doesn’t even take Bursar.
Let us know if you see these in any other Old Navy stores. In the meantime, we’ll be dreaming of the day when overly-enthusiastic, conspicuously-diverse prepsters dance in bright colors and Penn swag.
Our visit to yesterday’s Career Fair yielded no job prospects, but we did walk away with a handful of swag. After testing out all the pens, mini-footballs and chapsticks, we narrowed down our favorites, which we will now pit against each other in our patented SWAG-O-METER!
The finalists were insurance company Alfac and The Choice Program, a Maryland-based community service organization. The Choice Program definitely scores points for usefulness and green-friendliness with their water bottles. Aflac, meanwhile, brought swag up to the level of carnival prize with their giant stuffed geese. So who wins? Read the rest of this entry »
BlackRock, Rothschild and UBS, oh my! On Campus Recruiting ’09 may be a far cry from the boom years of yore, but there’s still a fair amount of recruiting going on inside Huntsman (and, from time to time, the Inn at Penn). And you know what that means: swag!
Swag comes in all shapes and sizes, from the mundane (pens, keychains) to the pretty cool (t-shirts, backpacks). But how do you know which presentations are worth sitting through (for the koozie at the end) and which ones will culminate in some rather elementary PowerPoint effects? Well, you don’t. But now, you can publicly shame the companies that leave you with bupkis!
Here’s how: e-mail us with swag reports: who gave out what and who left students empty-handed. We’ll post the swag roundups here, along with their ratings on our patented Swag-O-Meter. Happy recruiting!
