There’s no question that Lipkin’s Bakery has become a locally renowned establishment over its 43–year–run in Philadelphia’s Northeast region. The family–owned kosher bakery has a constant flow of customers on any given day. With a line stretching out the doors during high holidays, Lipkin's has proven its popularity among Philadelphia’s Jewish community. While I unintentionally avoided the crowds by driving to the bakery’s newly opened second location in South Philly, I was nevertheless treated with incredible hospitality by the women working there, all of whom were more than willing to provide me with their personal favorite offerings. So, sugar coma notwithstanding, here is a definitive ranking of the ten best pastries I tried at Lipkin’s Bakery:
When it comes to performing arts at Penn, Nick Hunsicker, who uses they/them/theirs pronouns, has done it all. A night owl and falafel truck regular, Nick practically lives in the Platt Performing Arts Center when they're not serving as an RA in the Quad. The busy senior sat down with Street to discuss where they've been and where they're going next.
Jacqueline Valeri’s (E ‘18) personality is much like the Penn band rehearsal room she spends much of her time in. She’s outspoken, unabashed, and liable to wander off on random tangents in conversation, like the various instruments all playing seven different melodies at once. All of these diverse bits and pieces that make up Jacqueline come together like a beautiful song in the marching band: forceful, quick–witted, and intelligently composed.
When it comes to what a typical Wharton student would hope to accomplish during his or her time at Penn, Geeta Minocha (W ‘19) exceeds expectations with flying colors...literally.
Anyone who knows Hillel cook Troy Harris can speak to his infectious positive energy, an aura that is evident even upon first meeting him. After working at Hillel for over 17 years, Harris has become a well–known figure amongst Penn students and has a strong passion for his job, which he describes as a way to meet people “from all different walks of life” by starting a conversation with anyone and everyone who walks in the door.
Sometimes, it’s hard to be a good person. We get it. Wharton Wellness, however, is hoping to change that with their Just Making Happiness Happen (JMHH) Awards, which is given to three Wharton students nominated by their peers for just being good people.
If you’re looking to get cuffed in college, join the Penn Band. Entrance into this tight–knit community on campus will almost surely guarantee you a husband or wife upon graduation, based on strong historical evidence.
Last Saturday, I woke up at 5:30 a.m. with 12 other Penn students to make the two and a half hour trip to Washington, D.C. for March for Our Lives. While on the train, at the gas station, and in between the inspiring speeches, I stopped to ask my fellow marchers what persuaded them to attend the event. This is what they had to say.
It is not uncommon for college students to consider (or reconsider) their faith in God at some point during their four years of school. This is especially true for Penn’s religiously–affiliated students, some of whom feel that their faith has differentiated their time on campus from non–affiliated students. There are few places on campus where this is more apparent than the Newman Center, Penn’s primary Catholic community. It’s a place where college and religion, two seemingly opposing concepts, don’t necessarily need to conflict.
For most Penn students, learning how to make a home–cooked meal is an unavoidable and (if we’re being honest) somewhat unattainable rite of passage. For Rachel Prokupek (W ‘20), it’s a skill that she’s mastered on three different continents.
Everyone likes a good underdog. Just ask Evan Thomas (W ‘20) and Meghan Chapman (C ‘18) of Dischord, one of the 17 a cappella groups on Penn’s campus. They view their group as having had a significant trajectory of success over the past few years, and their upcoming 20th anniversary show is meant to celebrate the group’s ascendancy within the competitive ranks of Penn a cappella.
It’s no secret that Penn academia can be overwhelming with its 300–person lecture halls and heavily weighted exams. These five teachers, nominated by students they have taught in the past year, help to bring the overall anxiety down a notch by creating unique and positive learning cultures in their classrooms.
I will admit I initially got secondhand anxiety upon hearing Khalil Jones (C '18) describe his daily schedule as a personal fitness instructor at Pottruck Fitness Center. This is what a typical Wednesday for Khalil looks like:
Tell me that freshmen love doesn’t exist and I’ll send you straight to Jordy Atencia (C ‘21) and Maribel Davila (W ‘21). They’ll convert you into a believer.
While most Penn students are able to identify, or at least acknowledge the presence of, LGBT groups on campus, few could specifically point to Penn Non–Cis, a transgender awareness and support group on campus, as a major influencer in the community. Brennan Burns (C ‘20), the club’s new financial chair, hopes to change this. Brennan discusses the group’s evolution at Penn and how she plans on help it grow in 2018.
Hill College House is like that brace–faced 8th grader in middle school who shows up to the first day of high school transformed into the trendiest person on campus. Hill was in its awkward phase to put it lightly, until this year. Now, it is the cool and coveted.
I don’t think I’ve ever met a family with such instant infectious energy as the Greys. As I entered through the glass doors of New College House on Friday to meet the house’s faculty director, Classical Studies Associate Professor Campbell Grey, I could barely utter a greeting before I was overtaken by the excitement of his two children upon seeing a new face in their midst. Connor, age four, couldn’t wait to show off his light–up snake toy and dangerously fast monster truck. Isabel, nine, confidently strutted alongside me through the dorm halls in her pajamas. Their self assurance was undeniable, one of many positive traits that Grey attributed to the unique structure of living in the college house system.

Ask a freshman to describe club membership at Penn, and “welcoming” is not a word that initially comes to mind. While many underclassmen are entering the spring semester with some sort of club experience under their belts, it’s hard to forget the initial shock of NSO’s Student Activities Fair and the intense application period that followed, when it became quickly apparent that passionate for a club was not enough to gain entry. It’s a culture that has recently been criticized for heightening mental health issues on campus. It’s also a culture that Wharton Latino rejects entirely.
