Friday Special: Second Semester Courses

by Andrew Piskai

For today’s column, Andrew Piskai has a few words to say about Advance Registration:

Ahh second semester course selection time. You can smell it in the air. The leaves begin to change, and that first itty-bitty hint of cold lingers stagnant in the November air. It makes you happy to be alive. However grand this time of year may be on the surface, many studious Penn students, following the example set forth by the Lion King, take this opportunity to panic as they choose what courses to take, a decision that will ultimately determine their place in the circle of life.

But, worry not my bundled Ivy urchins. Punchbowl is here to save the day. (Again). (It’s how we do).

Based on your school, we have tailored the following suggestions (like the Versace jackets many of you wear in this colder weather) based on the crucial skills we’ve found in every successful Penn grad. Take these courses to find a plethora of insight, a cornucopia of life skills, and some other cool vocabulary words meaning “a lot.”
