2012

BY MELANIE BAVARIA Staff Writer Even with Hurricane Isaac now headed away from Florida, Penn students attending the Republican National Convention are still in a whirlwind. Eight students from “Conventions, Debates and Campaigns,” a communication class co-taught by professors David

Eisenhower, Marjorie Margolies and David Thornburgh,, are in Tampa Bay, Fla., this week to experience and report the RNC. Demand for the class, which covers the election season beginning with the conventions and ending in November, was

the highest since the class began in 2004. The professors decided to open up the course to more students but made them choose between the two conventions due to a limited number of available passes. Eight students chose to attend the RNC while 12 will attend the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., next week. “The student body is more left-leaning, meaning the Democratic party is the party more students identify with,” said College senior Johnny Schaefer,

who will attend the DNC. The idea for the course started in 2000 under the direction of Kathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center. Jamieson, with the help of Eisenhower and Margolies, enlisted Annenberg undergraduates and graduate students for research assistance at the conventions. In 2004, Jamieson left the project and Eisenhower and Margolies turned it into an academic class, and in 2008, partSEE RNC PAGE A9

A GREEN PATHWAY to the Palestra

Penn co-signed a SCOTUS brief in support of affirmative action BY ALEX ZIMMERMANN Staff Writer Penn affirmed its commitment to race-based affirmative action earlier this month, as the school co-signed an amicus curiae brief in support of the University of Texas’ affirmative action policy. UT’s policy is under scrutiny in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin , an upcoming Supreme Court case involving Abigail Fisher, a white student who was denied admission to the university. Fisher is arguing that the school’s policy of using race as a consideration in admissions decisions violates the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. Oral arguments in front of the court are scheduled for Oct. 10. Penn joined the seven other Ivy League institutions, along with other highly selective schools like Duke and Stanford universities, in submitting the brief arguing that race-based affirmative action is crucial to ensuring a diverse student body, and that diversity is a compelling interest in students’ educational experiences. “Penn does not often, but does from time to time, join with our peers to file amicus briefs in the U.S. Supreme Court on issues of major significance to Penn and the higher education community,” Penn Senior Vice President and

The voter identification law, which passed in March and was upheld August 15 by the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court, requires photo IDs from accredited Pennsylvania colleges and universities to have an expiration date to be valid at the polls. The PennCard is valid because it has an expiration date. According to a study done in April by the Pennsylvania Pub-

Is this the end of The Line?

Rothman, founded by a Penn grad, gave $811,200 to Romney Victory, Inc. BY SARAH SMITH Associate News Editor Employees of the Philadelphia-based Rothman Institute Orthopaedics are the biggest company donor to Romney Victory, Inc. Sixty-eight Rothman Institute employees, including 12 Penn graduates, donated a total of $811,200 to Romney Victory — a fundraising committee for Republican nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign and the Republican National Committee — as of Oct. 20, according to the Federal Election Commission. Twenty-one of the 68 Rothman employees gave exactly $25,000. The institute — which has over 15 offices in Pennsylvania and New Jersey — was founded by 1958 College graduate and 1962 Perelman School of Medicine graduate Richard Rothman in 1970. He donated $25,000 to Romney Victory as well as $5,000 directly to Romney. $176,750 of the Rothman employee donations were from 12 Penn graduates employed at the clinic as doctors. The next highest total, grouped by employer, is from the private equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, according to The Washington Post. The firm’s employees donated $480,000 to Romney Victory. Romney Victory raises money to be distributed to other committees. Of the total Rothman donations to Romney Victory, $518,000 have gone to the RNC thus far. Rothman Institute Public Relations Manager Rick Cushman said Rothman Institute declined to comment on the donations. Other individual donors did not respond to interview requests.

be de-recognized. “At the last GBM, there was a lot of talk about why the penalties aren’t harsher, why so many groups are in debt,” College senior and SAC Chair Melissa Roberts said. “It was good that we had a debt plan, but judging by the fact that we had over 40 groups in debt at the beginning of the year, it obviously wasn’t a good enough deterrent.”

At the end of last month, debt held by 48 groups totaled $39,000. As of Thursday’s GBM, $13,000 had been repaid.

Lauder told of lessons learned over 60 years of business experience

Lauder’s parents, Estée and Joseph, are co-founders of the well-known beauty and makeup multinational company. The former chief executive and 1954 Wharton graduate got right to business after a few brief jokes and an introduction by Jerry Wind — a Board of Governors member of the Lauder Institute, which hosted the event. “I’m trying to pour 60 years of experience into 25 minutes,” Lauder said.

wanted “to ensure … that nobody should be unable to have their preferred name due to financial hardship.” He further explained that many UA members were confused about how the internal process behind the resolution would work and whether it would cost anything for students. The initiative focuses on ma k i ng t he process of changing one’s name easier and more accessible for students. “Changing your name legally is a really extensive process,” Androphy said. “There is a way to do it but it’s not accessible to transgender students who aren’t in the know or international students who don’t know about it at all.” A ndrophy is currently in the process of rewriting the resolution to be brought back to the UA in January.

A fter being tabled by the Undergraduate Assembly last week , the Preferred Name Initiative will be resubmitted in the next semester. The initiative that would enable transgender and international students to change their name on non-legal documents and class rosters at Penn was brought by Lambda A lliance chair and College sophomore Dawn Androphy to the Undergraduate Assembly a few weeks ago. However, the resolution was tabled at the meeting after an amendment was added to it. C o l l e g e j u n i o r a n d UA Technology Director Nikolai Zapertov was the author of the amendment . He was concer ned that the resolution did not take students’ financial situations into consideration. Zapertov said, due to the costs of obtaining new documents such as a PennCard, he

Preferred Name Initiative tabled, to be rewritten BY ALEXANDRA GETSOS Staff Writer

Despite the recent escalation of violence in the Arab-Israeli conflict, few professors will be directly addressing the topic in class. Two courses offered next semester will deal with the conflict , according to course descriptions and interviews with professors. Political science professor Ian Lustick , who will teach “International Politics of the Middle East” in the spring, said he thought professors at Penn are reluctant to address the issue because of the “tremendous pressure” associated with teaching it. “Many of my colleagues who teach Middle East studies go out of their way to avoid ever doing research on the Arab-Israeli conflict or teaching about it, because they don’t want to be subjected to hostile attacks from either direction,” he said.

Penn is involved in litigation with dozens of former students over the repayment of tuition and loans. The practice is not uncommon. In November, the University filed six lawsuits in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas demanding repayments of amounts ranging from $13,200 to $26,800. C o l l e c t i n g st u d e nt d e b t through litigation is not unusual amongst other universities. Yale University has a number of collections suits currently filed. Temple University is also suing

former students to recover their loans or overdue tuition bills with the same debt collections attorney who represents Penn in these suits, J. Scott Watson. Watson did not respond to requests for a comment by press time. “If students graduate or leave the University with an outstanding balance, their debt will be transferred to the University’s Collections Office,” Marlene Bruno, spokesperson for Student Registration and Financial Services, said in an email. The Collections Office may then decide to hire a debt collection agency or contract a law firm to sue the indebted student.

es seven movies, more or less, every semester. Simple arithmetic proves that it’s $40 cheaper to watch said movies on Netflix than at the Rave, and an additional $20 less on iTunes (cost of popcorn and Mike and Ikes not included in these calculations). The low cost of watching seven movies on iTunes for less than 30 bucks is worth the many conveniences that online paid services afford us: not being interrupted by incessant buffering and commercials, the immunity to computer viruses and most importantly, not having to wait 54 minutes after watching 72 minutes of a movie on Megavideo. Not to mention, it’s a small price to pay when you look at the big picture — the combined savings of the 47.7% of Penn students who pay for their online services rather than going to the movie theater is somewhere between $196,136 and $295,344, depending on whether they use Netflix or iTunes, respectively. Moral of the story is: we won't judge if you just stay in bed.
