Bunny on Campus

By: Stephanie Yee, C’08

During Alumni Weekend 2014, I spotted the most adorable bunny near The Palestra. Everyone knows about the huge squirrel population on Penn’s campus, but did you know about the bunnies? Tell us, have you seen other creatures roaming the campus?

It’s the first day of April, and it still feels like winter is lingering. While most of us are eagerly waiting for warm weather and spring blooms, we are lucky to enjoy winter beauty on Penn’s campus.

A Palestra Proposal

Author: Stephanie Yee, C’08

The Penn Band always knows how to keep things interesting at The Palestra. On Saturday, Penn Men’s Basketball fans witnessed a Penn Band marriage proposal during a media timeout. Hurrah for Penn love, and congratulations to the newly engaged couple!

New Neural & Behavioral Sciences Building at Penn

Author: Stephanie Yee, C’08

Penn is a world leader in interdisciplinary research. Undergrads are familiar with interdisciplinary majors such as BBB and PPE, and faculty and staff are constantly collaborating with colleagues throughout the university. Construction has begun on a new building on Penn’s campus near Leidy Labs and the Bio Pond. The Neural & Behavioral Sciences Building will be home to the integrated and collaborative study of biology and psychology. BBB majors rejoice! According to the Penn Connects website, the new building will be located between the Leidy Labs at 3740 Hamilton Walk and the Carolyn Lynch Labs at 433 South University Avenue. The completion date is TBD. Let’s hope the builders are speedy!

Penn Men’s Basketball Beats Princeton, 77-74

Author: Stephanie Yee, C08

Spirits were low going into part two of Saturday’s doubleheader after Penn Women’s Basketball’s tragic loss to Princeton, 53 – 84. After two hours of cheering, screaming, and serious heart palpitations, we celebrated the Men’s big victory over Princeton, 77-74. It was a great day to be a Quaker! Join us back in The Palestra this Saturday for College Game Day followed by Penn vs. St. Joe’s at 7 PM.

Penn beats Princeton, 77-74. Go Quakers!
