We LOVE going for the Gold in the AlumPics!

Happy Valentine’s Day Quakers!

It’s the last day of the #alumpics competition on Facebook, and our wintery, throwback Thursday photo yesterday took the gold! But, we’re behind in the medal totals, so we need a strong showing today.

Given that it’s Valentine’s Day, how can you not “like” and “share” the LOVE at Penn? We can’t let Princeton, Stanford, Cornell or Columbia take gold today when we’ve got LOVE right in the middle of campus!

Here's our entry for today's Alumpics theme of LOVE.

Here’s the link to this photo on Penn’s Facebook page. Be sure to log in to “like” it and “share.”

Sharing Penn’s photo to your Penn class or club’s Facebook group/page helps us as they are tallying shares and likes! Simply go to the Penn photo (link above), log into Facebook, and you’ll see a “share” option under the photo. Click on that and you have a drop-down menu so you can share it to your timeline or to a group. While we hope you’ll do both, sharing to your group encourages your fans to like and share the photo also. Just be sure to encourage people to like the photo at Penn’s FB page, and not on your or your class/club’s page.

For a recap of our gold-medal winning performance yesterday, see the Alumpics blog.

Let’s Go Quakers!

P.S. If you’re really feeling the love today, be sure to check the Twitter hashtag #WhyILovePhilly – isn’t Penn a big part of why we love Philadelphia?

Where is the LOVE Statue?

Author: Aimee LaBrie

Actually, that should be “How is the LOVE statue?”  or “What happened to the LOVE statue?” Because one may have noticed, if one were not too tired from the weekend and not just having her first hot sip of much-needed coffee while stumbling down Locust Walk, that the LOVE statue has been slightly altered since we last checked in.

To wit:

Here’s what the popular, student-run blog, Under the Button has to say about it:

Spotted early this morning amidst College Green was a newly rainbow-hued LOVE statue. According to our sources, the makeover, touted as a “public art installation,” may be the first of many Cubic Street Art projects. Maybe it has to do with our school’s gay-friendly status? Perhaps.

If you have the inside scoop, let us know.
