Trump’s repeal of DACA: inside the movement to support Penn’s “dreamers” in 2017

    Trump's repeal of DACA: inside the movement to support Penn's "dreamers" in 2017
    The Penn community navigated many immigration policy changes this year, one of the biggest being Trump's announcement to discontinue the Deferred Action for Arrivals program by March 2018. The program, which was enacted as an executive order under former President Barack Obama, protects 790,000 "dreamers" who entered the country without proper documentation as children.

    Where to eat latkes in and around Center City
    You can almost never go wrong with fried potatoes. French fries, home fries, hash browns, tots, potato chips - every variation is good. But there's something about the Jewish potato pancake traditionally enjoyed during the Festival of Lights that's extra satisfying.

The year in petitions: what got Penn students riled up in 2017?

The election of President Donald Trump began with tear-filled protests in November last year, and continued with protests throughout 2017. Hours after the 1968 Wharton graduate was inaugurated, dozens of students walked out of their classes to demonstrate their opposition to his administration.

    The year in petitions: what got Penn students riled up in 2017?
    Activism has been a cornerstone of the Penn student experience for years, and 2017 was no different. Throughout the year, undergraduate and graduate students penned over a dozen strongly-worded letters and collected thousands of signatures for a wide range of issues.
