Spread that out real good...
In anticipation of May flowers, campus soil has been sprinkled with a fresh heap of fertilizers this week. And with temperatures expected to flirt with 90 degrees today, we’re anticipating a full-blown aromatic disaster. This morning, we spotted University staff piling on the stanky stuff along Benjamin Franklin’s Way. We appreciate these pooper scoopers’ work to keep campus looking real pretty. But, couldn’t you have waited until the (much more temperate) weekend?! This seems backwards.
…but apparently not hot enough, according to Penn Housing Services. It seems like only days ago we transitioned to fire hazards heating, but now we’re back to craving the A/C.
However, the College Houses won’t just let any old weather inspire central cooling; they have some complex formula that must be adhered to in order to give us relief.
Read the whole explanation email after the jump, but in the meantime, enjoy the solidarity with Hill residents.

Fisher Fine Arts does most things right. One thing it still needs to master? Temperature control. The last round of reading days saw FFA turned into a veritable icebox. This round of reading days, FFA is feeling more than a bit sauna-like. A sign posted yesterday reads:
The University is aware that the Fisher Fine Arts Library is too hot.
They are working to remedy the situation.
A day later, our beloved FFA is still toasty. A lone industrial-sized fan is circulating some air, but that’s pretty hard to do in the reading room. So, “University,” please get on this ASAP. How else are we supposed to pass MATH170??
Our friend Brian Hwang writes in with some observations on the Penn student body.
NB to Tae: stole this from your FB album, is that ok?
We’re not sure what it is about the ninety-degree heat that brings out the hotness is all of us, but everyone seems much more attractive today than they did during the rainy season in between Fling and last weekend. In the past few days, excessive temperatures have brought out the gladiator sandals, high-waisted skirts and oversized sunglasses that make the Penn face so much more appealing. Whatever it is, hopefully it continues after the air conditioning turns on and finals begin.
