Nearly 100 Penn students and Philadelphia residents marched from College Hall to the Campus Apartments headquarters on Friday to demand the halt of the development of the proposed Philadelphia 76ers arena in Chinatown.

The protest, organized by Students for the Preservation Of Chinatown, a coalition of students against the proposed 76ers arena, was held in conjunction with the Coalition to Save the UC Townhomes and student activist groups from Penn and Drexel University.

Students from the Tri-College Consortium, an academic collaboration between Bryn Mawr, Haverford, and Swarthmore Colleges, as well as students from local Philadelphia high schools also attended in support.

Penn football 2022: Season Superlatives

Penn football's Newcomer of the Year goes to someone who didn't see any game action but made arguably the biggest impact of anyone on the team this season.

Finishing off a season with its most wins since 2010, Penn football had a lot of players step up big this season.

The Red and Blue offense was no match for a wall of Orange and Blue defense Sunday afternoon.

In what could have been a crushing blowout to conclude Penn’s (13-3-2, 6-1 Ivy) season, an impressive defensive performance limited the damage. When the final whistle sounded, though, No. 3 seed Syracuse (15-2-4) celebrated its 2-1 victory over the Quakers in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

In spite of the loss, advancing to the second round of the NCAA Tournament marks a drastic turnaround for a team that recorded only one conference win last season. Penn found success in its departing senior class throughout the season, but with the underclassmen who are set to fill their shoes — coupled with coach Brian Gill’s guidance — Penn men’s soccer’s future shines bright.

Penn enters its final game of the season as 14.5-point underdogs. Based on that spread, it'd be hard to have a ton of faith in the Quakers against Princeton. But the only other time they were double-digit underdogs this season, the Red and Blue marched into Dartmouth and took a statement win, so anything's possible.

Five Daily Pennsylvanian staffers make their predictions ahead of Saturday's season-ending contest.

Troy Majnerick, Associate Director of the New Student Orientation & Academic Initiatives, said that the program is a rebrand of the Take your Professor to Lunch program, with more “sophisticated” features, but the same goal: to foster mentorship relationships for all Penn members.

In its final bout of the season, Penn football (7-2, 4-2 Ivy) heads to Princeton (8-1, 5-1) this Saturday with the goal of showing that the Quakers can overcome the odds one last time.

After losses in two of their last three games against Ancient Eight rivals Brown and Harvard, the Quakers find themselves in a tough situation where they must beat Princeton and count on Harvard defeating Yale to clinch a four-way Ivy League championship. This would be the first-ever four-way tie for the top spot in the conference’s 66 seasons of play.

With so much on the line this Saturday in a showdown between two teams who often mirror each other’s strengths and successes, coach Ray Priore expects that the game can very well come down to the last moment as it did against Dartmouth and Yale.

Penn will take on Princeton this Saturday at 1 p.m. on Powers Field in Princeton, N.J. Fans can stream the game live on ESPN+.
