It was our first graduation back in person in a while and my first time Marshalling!
Bravo 2022 grads!
Tiffany’s been engaged in some really interesting social science research around messaging and mask wearing. It was great to have a conversation with her about it during family weekend!
With massive coordination and a lot of personal outreach, our peer advisors did an AMAZING job welcoming everyone back to campus and bringing out newest students to the Welcome to the College event! Special shout out to Omar, Tiffany, Bakir and Bryan for their work as peer managers making everything happen. BRAVO!
I’ve been so impressed with out cohort of peer advisors this year! If you’d like to join the group and help greet the next class of incoming students, apply to become a peer advisor! Applications due, February 8: https://www.college.upenn.edu/peer-advisors
I’m excited to have participated as a commenter in the Student Research Expo during Family Weekend!
Thank you, William Daniels, for your interesting work on Project Exile, and more generally a piece on the history of the relationship between the federal government and policing!
You can see the entire research expo here(!):
One of my all-time-fave alums, Isabella Cuan, reached out to let me know about a project she’s started (with a team!) called Letters in Limbo. I haven’t written anything yet, but it seems like a really cool project! If you’re interested in submitting a letter, head to the link: https://www.letters-in-limbo.com/
As the coronavirus pandemic unfolds, we’ve decided to launch “Letters in Limbo”: a historical archive documenting the personal experiences of people around the world in the face of crisis.
We are inviting you to write a letter to your future self as a means of reflecting on your thoughts and experiences in the age of COVID-19.
This is an exercise in reflection and storytelling. Think about an experience you’ve had recently in the wake of the pandemic, or the rewards and challenges of your newfound routine. Whether you’re feeling confusion, grief, or joy in your day-to-day, we believe putting our thoughts in writing can help us all navigate uncertainty and capture an honest portrait of the times.
In the aftermath of the pandemic, we will publish all submissions to the site (anonymously upon request), creating a historical record that will last for years to come.
While social distancing measures around the world keep us apart, we hope publishing “Letters in Limbo” in one space will bring us closer together than ever before.
