U. announces new position of ‘Chief Wellness Officer’
The officer will oversee a new umbrella department MANLU LIU Deputy News Editor
Penn will institute the position of a chief wellness officer, Penn President Amy Gutmann announced in an email to all Penn undergraduate students on April 24. According to the email, the
chief wellness officer will oversee a new department at Penn called “Student Wellness Services” that will include Counseling and Psychological Services, the Student Health Service, and the Office of Alcohol and Other Drug Program Initiatives. The email also announced a series of other changes Penn will be implementing to CAPS as a result of the CAPS operational review. Gutmann said that
Penn aims to increase capacity at CAPS, decrease the time between a first CAPS consultation and a first counseling appointment, and optimize technology to make CAPS more accessible to students. Additionally, Penn hopes to better distinguish between short-term and long-term care options offered at CAPS, as well as additional wellness options. “The overall goal of these
Kurzban allegedly had relationship with student advisee Professor said he did not think his actions were ‘inappropriate’ VIBHA KANNAN Senior Reporter
Robert Kurzban, a longtime Penn professor, had a romantic relationship with an undergraduate female student who was one of his advisees in the Psychology Department, said the student involved and three of her friends. Text message exchanges provided to The Daily Pennsylvanian confirm several incidents in the alleged relationship, which happened over January 2016. The revelation of this relationship comes two weeks after the DP reported on April 11 that Kurzban engaged in a sexual relationship in 2017 with another female undergraduate while she was a student in his course. Kurzban was the director of Undergraduate Studies in the Psychology Department during both these relationships. Since 1995, Penn policy has stated that sexual relationships
Penn aims to raise $4.1 billion in four years YONI GUTENMACHER Deputy News Editor
The “Power of Penn” fundraising campaign — the largest one yet in the University’s history — is set to finance eight new buildings, as well as finance new renovations and extensions of current buildings. Approved by Penn’s Board of Trustees in March and set to last until 2021, the “Power of Penn Campaign: Advancing Knowledge for Good” was announced on April 12 with an email from Penn President Amy Gutmann sent to Penn faculty and students. The campaign aims to raise $4.1 billion in four years, making it the most ambitious fundraising project in Penn history. Chair of Penn’s Board of Trustees David Cohen made clear,

The student researchers in the Penn Slavery Project expanded upon their initial findings further demonstrating the University’s connections to slavery at a presentation April 23. This semester, the group focused on the construction of Penn’s early campus — what was then known as The Academy of Philadelphia — as well as the connections of contemporary professors and alumni to the slave trade.

however, that the decision to launch certain construction projects were made independently of the fundraising campaign. “Most of the buildings are going to be financed by the campaign. The decision to build them and the judgements as to their needs have nothing to do with their campaign,” Cohen said. “There are independent assessments made by the University and the Schools as to the need for the additional buildings and facilities.” The campaign involves all 12 schools and six centers at Penn and it has outlined seven detailed “priorities” — focused groups of projects that it aims to fund. One of them, called “creat[ing] spaces that drive solutions,” states that nine campus construction projects will be covered by funds raised. Two of the scheduled projects are affiliated with the Wharton

She often discussed details of her coursework with him, and he approved a course within her psychology minor during her undergraduate career. The student, who was 21 years old at the time, said she met with Kurzban in his apartment in Center City in the spring of 2016, where they kissed. Three of her friends, all of whom were 2016 College graduates, independently confirmed to the DP that the student had told them about the kiss on the same day that it happened. Consequently, the student said she indicated to

For several years, students have expressed concerns about the wait time to get an appointment at CAPS as well as the uncertainty regarding the type of care CAPS can offer students. The Daily Pennsylvanian reported that students sometimes are not told that CAPS is intended
The students unearthed evidence that implicated several leading figures, such as Robert Smith, a prominent architect for the Academy and a slaveholder, as having substantial involvement in the slave trade. There is also significant evidence that the University had considerable knowledge of the connections, which included a campaign soliciting funds from a number of wealthy donors, many of whom owned slaves. Perhaps the most explicit evidence that Penn documented and was aware of connections to the slave trade involved Ebenezer Kinnersley, an early professor of the Academy who worked alongside Penn founder Benjamin Franklin. Kinnersley was
reimbursed by the University from 1757 to 1770 for the work done by his enslaved person on campus. “These funds are coming directly from people who are benefiting from the slave labor and the exploitation of enslaved bodies and the University was aware,” College senior and PSP member Caitlin Doolittle said during the presentation. “None of this is happening in a vacuum. They are not ignorant to the fact that these people are slaveowners.” For two semesters, a group of undergraduate students has explored Penn’s ties to the slavery and the slave trade.

How Penn athlete’s death has shaped mental health discussions in the Ivy League Madison Holleran died by suicide in January 2014 AMY LIU Deputy News Editor
College freshman Madison Holleran started at Penn in 2013 as a track and field athlete from Allendale, N.J. Her death by suicide five months later has prompted a conversation on mental health in athletic departments in institutions of higher education. Major media outlets began to investigate the factors that led to Holleran’s death, including the Kate Fagan ESPN feature “Split Image” and her best-selling book, “What Made Maddy Run: The Secret Struggles and Tragic Death of an All-American Teen,” published in August 2017.

associated with the “success culture” among young people. “One of main themes of the book was about social media and
technology and the effects of technology on our brain, including issues of increased anxiety,” Fagan said. “When Maddy died, that was a salient point to make about Instagram and Snapchat.” These issues began being addressed in institutions and across higher education. A college suicide prevention bill dedicated to Holleran was passed in New Jersey in 2016 requiring mental health resources to be more readily accessible to college students. And at Ivy League schools, officials began addressing mental health for athletes in light of Holleran’s death through discussions and the distribution of Fagan’s book.

Student says U. tried stalling publication of research He researched Penn’s connection to the slave trade GIOVANNA PAZ Deputy News Editor
College junior Clay Graubard says University officials tried preventing him from publishing his semester-long research findings on Penn’s connection to the slave trade. His research was finally published, but Graubard said not without taking great steps to put pressure on the administration. After working with the University Archives and Records Center throughout the semester, Graubard said he sent early drafts to University Archivist Mark Lloyd who then forwarded them to Penn Chief Diversity Officer and Senior Vice President for Institutional Affairs Joan Mitchell, who is a member the Provost’s working group to investigate these ties to slavery. Graubard said he wanted feedback on his research from the Provost’s working group, which was created this semester in response to the findings of the Penn Slavery Project. Graubard said he was notified
Varsity Club distributed copies of “What Made Maddy Run” to Harvard University athletes after Harvard alumna and Varsity Club special assistant Jessica Perillo introduced the book and suggested it be shared. Before spreading the book to Harvard varsity captains this semester, coaches and athletic administrators received the book in December. Although Harvard has not had any formal discussions dedicated to Fagan’s book, Harvard assistant baseball coach Bryan Stark said coaches often bring it up in small groups or department meetings. Stark added that although the book distribution acted as a resource
on April 17 for the first time that his research could not be published at the time, and he further said he was given no reason for the University’s decision. Lloyd declined to comment on this story. Mitchell did not respond to request for comment on this story. “I believe that the University has been treating this subject as an issue that needs to be contained and controlled rather than explored,” he said of the research on Penn’s ties to slavery. “I do not believe this is how an institution with the history and prestige that Penn has should be operating.” After this notification, Graubard said he emailed Mitchell directly to request an explanation for their reasoning not to allow the research to be published at the moment. Mitchell responded saying they could only discuss the issue further in two weeks from the date, which would be in the middle of finals. Feeling dissatisfied with this response, Graubard said he decided to attempt to pressure administrators to help publish his paper by hand-delivering a letter to Penn President Amy Gut-
mann’s office. He began reaching out to reporters to discuss these complications as well. Graubard also said he contacted other administrators like Gregory Rost, Adam Michaels, Leslie Kruhly, and Leah Popowich. On April 20, Graubard said he was told by Mitchell that his paper would be released through UARC with the stipulation that they would be posted simultaneously with the other five research papers from students in the Penn Slavery Project. While the Penn Slavery Project had been researching this topic since last semester, Graubard said he decided to work independently to maintain his autonomy. “I felt I could contain complete control of my research, my work, and my schedule,” he said. “I would go to archives basically four days a week whenever I could, at whatever times I could.” Instead of waiting for the University, Graubard said he decided to ‘soft-publish’ his research paper online to Medium. “My paper has been finished since last Monday and was supposed to be published this past Thursday, April 19,” he wrote
in the introduction to the paper. “This had been the plan for weeks — and the general understanding for months — but complications arose last Tuesday which prevented the paper’s release.” “Last Friday, a resolution was made and today [April 23] my paper was published through the University Archives and Records Center,” he continued. His findings overlap with those of the Penn Slavery Project which presented its expanded findings on the University’s ties to slavery on Monday. Both Graubard and the student group showcase evidence that the University reimbursed a Penn professor for the cost of enslaved labor for more than a decade. They also demonstrated the University’s participation in fundraising tours in the late 18th century which raised money from wealthy individuals, including slave owners. Graubard’s paper also states that some of the builders involved in the construction of the University were slaveholders and documents eight of the founding trustees’ ties to slavery.
Clay Graubard said he decided to work independently from the Penn Slavery Project group in order to maintain his autonomy.
to acknowledge the university’s hyper-competitive environment, Holleran’s story alone is not the original reason Harvard began to pay greater attention to its athletes’ mental health. Stark said that Holleran’s story has, however, made him more receptive to the importance of warning signs in athletes’ behavior. “Just reading more about it, as days go by, I think it’s been a natural trend that you pay more attention to things here and there,” Stark said. “I have a very close eye on our guys’ body language and the kind of moods they’re in. We try to pay attention to things that stick out a bit more for an extended period of time or people going from real highs or real lows quickly throughout the course of the day.”
At Cornell University, Fagan’s book is not widely distributed, but Fagan herself spoke at an event on campus in April 2017 on the topic of mental health in athletics. Cornell assistant athletic trainer Kathryn Jean Harris said that Holleran’s story often comes up during informal conversation among coaches and other staff. “Mental health and physical health go hand in hand and are not two separate things,” Harris said. “The conversations I have been a part of have always been how we can improve and make things better for our student athletes at Cornell and how we can break the stigma.” Cornell’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee created a video in April 2018 addressing the mental
health stigma among athletes, using the hashtag #DontBearItAlone. However, Harris attributes the increased awareness of mental health in college athletics to a nationwide trend rather than Holleran’s story specifically. Cornell Associate Director of Athletics for Communications Jeremy Hartigan agreed, saying that Holleran’s case is “important, but not a rallying cry.” At Princeton University, Princeton Women’s Center will collaborate with Princeton Counseling and Psychological Services to welcome Fagan on April 30 for a discussion named “Pressure to be Perfect.” While there has been many concrete steps taken to improve mental health resources specific to athletes
across the Ivy Leagues, there has been little improvement on Penn’s campus toward increasing accessibility. The DP reported on senior fencer Ashley Marcus’s efforts to lobby Penn’s administration. Her proposal suggested Penn allot one of the five CAPS therapists it plans to hire this year to work out of a Penn Athletics building, as well as hire an additional therapist as part of its own budget. Marcus has said she has received no indication that Penn is considering her proposal. Other issues in Penn Athletics such as member retention are closely related to mental health as well. Holleran’s friend and teammate, 2016 College graduate Taylor Hennig, says the pressure Holleran was under is indicative of many

other students at Penn, including athletes, who Hennig says often feel that they must constantly perform their best in every area of life. “There are certain expectations of you that one, you maintain your grades and two, you do well in your sport because you were recruited and you have a job to fulfill,” College freshman and track team member Ashley Anumba said. “We all know that being here is hard enough.” “There weren’t as many open signs to people close to her that she was struggling because she hid it pretty well,” Hennig said. “It’s a reminder that we should all be comfortable talking about mental health and the people we should least expect are suffering still can be.”

A look into Rep. Conor Lamb’s Penn career Lamb is running for re-election in Pa.’s 17th district
political science major Pierre Gooding. Gooding said that he has heard consistently high praise of Lamb from their classmates and was “impressed that so many people vouched for him.” He called the entire experience of seeing Lamb’s campaign “positive.” “Now he has an opportunity to really do some good for his district and Pennsylvanians,” Gooding said. “That’s really what we want to see.” Gooding also spoke to the support the Penn club rugby team offered Lamb in the early stages of his campaign. “Very early on in his candidacy the rugby team, along with various other classmates, reached out to say that Conor would be running, and that support would be a good thing if people wanted to be involved,”
LUCY CURTIS Staff Reporter
Just after 2006 College graduate Conor Lamb won a close special election in the mostlyRepublican Pennsylvania 18th district, he launched a campaign for re-election in Pennsylvania’s newly-defined 17th district. If he is selected as the Democratic candidate during May’s primaries, he will officially be up for re-election for the congressional seat in the 17th district. As Lamb continues to make national headlines, many of those who knew him at Penn — as an undergraduate student studying political science and as a 2009 Penn Law graduate — have reflected on their experiences together on campus and have supported him along the way. During his time at Penn, Lamb was a member of the men’s club rugby team and lived in Harrison College House. He was involved in the Robert A. Fox Leadership Program, a program which allowed him to take part in community service. Joseph Tierney, executive director of the Fox Program, said that Lamb managed students involved in multiple community service projects during his time at Penn. These projects included leading a group of high school students to install technical

equipment in public schools in low-income areas, and traveling with a group of college students to post-Katrina New Orleans and leading their participation in a Habitat for Humanity project. “He exhibited incredible leadership skills,” Tierney said about Lamb’s time with the Fox Leadership Program. “It was clear he had a deep devotion to serving the community and to serving others.”
Tierney also taught Lamb in an undergraduate seminar called “Leadership and Community Service,” and said that Lamb “was an outstanding student.” Several weeks ago, Tierney attended Lamb’s swearing-in ceremony, calling it “one of the proudest moments of my life.” Lamb’s passion for community involvement has extended to his campaign platform, in which he lists the opioid crisis and affordable health care as some of
his top priorities. After graduating from Penn Law, Lamb enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and completed active duty in 2013. He currently serves as a major in the reserves. In 2014, Lamb was appointed as assistant U.S. attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania. Lamb’s reputation as a good leader and caring person while at Penn was extrapolated on by 2006 Class President and fellow
Gooding said. He added that he found this “impressive” because “it showed that people cared.” Fellow rugby teammate and 2006 College graduate Austin Lavin also spoke to how supportive the team was. “What’s special about the Penn rugby community is that people who played and went school at different times also stepped up to support [Lamb],” Lavin said. “I was happy to donate, and I know others were as well.” Lavin also echoed sentiments about how involved Lamb was with the community around him and how much he cared about others. “I’ve always been impressed with Conor,” Lavin said. “I find him to be thoughtful and serious and engaged, even at that point, in making his community a better one.”

worth it. I want to tell the people who left me these comments to think critically, and remember that there’s a person behind the articles. We’re all entitled to our opinions, but not to go after one another in such an aggressive manner. But the reality of being a journalist is that I have to take criticism in stride, because it’s something I’m going to experience on a daily basis in my career. Last semester, I attended The Daily Pennsylvanian’s Marquez Journalism Conference, and had the chance to hear from alumni about their experiences pursuing careers in the newspaper and magazine industries. All of the journalists who spoke described just how dangerous their jobs are. Many of them receive death threats on a daily basis. Some compromise their lives to tell stories. I don’t experience hatred to that extreme, and I probably never will in my time as a writer for on-campus publications. But one day, I might, which is why I have to remind myself why I’m doing this. While being disliked by so many members of the Penn community has, at times, hurt my mental health, I’ve gotten the chance to stimulate an engaging dialogue on campus about pertinent issues. After the sorority feature I wrote, the Penn Association for Gender Equity hosted a discussion about Greek life. That truly reminded me of the value of my work. Beyond just one article, my
writing has given me the chance to meet so many people in different corners of the this school that I otherwise wouldn’t know. I revel in the moments when people stop me on Locust to talk about one of my columns. Even just seeing students reading the DP makes me inexplicably happy. And I especially enjoy cultivating connections with the people I interview. Just a few weeks ago, I got to write a piece about a Penn student who competed on “Jeopardy!”

This is for other student-journalists who spend hours lineediting pieces so that the Penn community has access to stories that matter.

What I wish I knew when I was accepted to Penn
othing makes you feel older than hosting baby Quakers, still wide-eyed and excited about college acceptances and life in general. Not that college doesn’t excite me anymore, or that I’m not extremely grateful for my life here every day — but there is a natural accumulation of jadedness as college life goes on, and an underlying disillusionment that tends to settle in, no matter how much we say we’re happy here. As my roommate and I sat talking to two of our Quaker Day kids until 2 a.m., trying our best to offer unbiased, helpful advice, I found myself reflecting on what I’ve really learned here at Penn. To Baby Quakers who are still choosing between colleges, who chose Penn or didn’t — classes, internships, extracurriculars will be difficult, but it won’t even be the hardest thing. Finding happiness and balance in your life, by far, will be the greatest challenge, and also the most difficult to articulate and define. There is no recipe for happiness, nor is there a place that is “perfect” for you. I staunchly believe that dream schools do not ex-

Every place has the potential for heartbreak and loss, and especially at peer schools similar to Penn, there will be an underlying current of competitiveness and unhappiness everywhere. Yes, we blame it on Wharton here, but every university is filled with students competing for success. This might seem negative, but in another light, it’s also empowering. There’s more autonomy in your hands than ever, more choices at your disposal than ever before. It’s intimidating, but it’s also liberating: You get to choose your moments. You get to shape your experience, at Penn or anywhere else, and if you want to change course or switch majors, you can. Would I be happier at another place that’s not Penn? It’s an inter-

you happy is sometimes the only thing you can rely on. Whatever makes your heart race, whatever makes you excited, whatever stops you from becoming too jaded, whatever empowers you — these
are the things worth doing. These are the activities and people you should fill your college experience up with, no matter where you are. It’s far too easy to get caught up in the details that won’t matter in the long run. Social image, board positions, homework assignments, even internships and recruiting — these are just some of the external factors that keep us up at night even beyond Penn, preventing us from understanding what the bottom line is. And to me, after being at college for two years already, the bottom line is this: Be happy and fulfilled, and know that you are enough, wherever you are.

Girls just want to have fun: Why we should let sororities throw parties ALIFIMOFF’S ALLEY | Current rules enforce outdated gender norms
remember my first frat party. It was oppressively hot, in the way that only Philadelphia in late August can be. I was backed into a corner, my calves pressed against the cool of the keg, slowly sipping my drink, terrified of being one of the girls who drinks too much on the first night of college and does something embarrassing. Despite the fear and the heat, and the acrid sips of Bankers burning in my mouth, I felt a swell of happiness. This was college. I’d made it. During New Student Orientation, fraternities often take on the role of unofficial “campus ambassadors.” They welcome new
ing their own events by outdated rules. The unequal rules surrounding alcohol possession and consumption in Greek life, which tilt the social power balance in favor of fraternities, are at the heart of some of Greek life’s biggest problems. Panhellenic guidelines prevent sororities from having alcohol in their houses.

them from hosting events with open bars. This stands in striking contrast to the Interfraternity Council which responded to the new Task Force guidelines last semester by subsidizing “50% of the costs associated with hiring bartenders and security guards for on–campus fraternities.”
In practice, this means that when it comes to normal weekend socializing, sororities are dependent on frats to host and provide alcohol for mixers and socials. At parties, frat brothers control who enters, they pour drinks, and kick people out when necessary. They have the undeniable home court advantage. Unequal policies regarding alcohol lead to systemic inequities within the Greek system. These inequities are not the fault of any one organization or group. To paint this issue as one of fraternity misogyny or sorority prudishness would be to misunderstand the problem.

REBECCA ALIFIMOFF has been an overwhelmingly positive experience that embodies all of the cliches one hears during rush week. In my sorority, I’ve found not only my best friends, but also a community of women who have pushed me to be more active, ambitious, and vocal about making Penn a better place. I’ve been inspired by their poise, dedication, and intelligence. I want Penn to be a safer and more progressive place. I want Greek life to be more open and inclusive. But that will only happen when we start an open dialogue about the structural problems and inequalities that plague the Greek community. It starts by beginning a conversation with the organizations that we are a part of. It starts by admitting the ways we have been complicit in systems that perpetuate outdated gender roles and asking how we can do better in the future. Girls just wanna have fun, and I’d like to do it without the crippling guilt of upholding the patriarchy. REBECCA ALIFIMOFF is a College sophomore from Fort Wayne, Ind. studying history.

Penn undermines its own relationship policy by staying silent on Kurzban THE DAILY PENNSYLVANIAN OPINION BOARD
t has been close to two weeks since The Daily Pennsylvanian published an investigative article detailing a sexual relationship between former Undergraduate Chair of the Psychology Department Robert Kurzban and a female undergraduate student in his class. The alleged relationship clearly violated University policy and undermined Penn’s recent efforts to counter sexual misconduct on campus. Despite this, the admin-
University spokesperson Stephen MacCarthy. “We take all allegations of sexual misconduct seriously and investigate them,” MacCarthy wrote in an email. “However, we do not comment on individual personnel matters.” This week, in response to a new set of allegations that Kurzban had a romantic relationship with an undergraduate female student while he was her minor advisor, Executive Director of
If administrators want to adapt and improve the University’s policies around sexual misconduct, they must also be willing to acknowledge when existing policies have been violated.” istration has provided little in the way of a response. When approached for comment on the story, three of the University’s top administrators did not respond, while two deferred to a two-sentence statement from
the Provost’s Office Leo Charney replicated the same statement provided by MacCarthy. All five of the administrators contacted for this latest article also declined to address whether Kurzban would be teaching a
class next semester. As of today, over a dozen Penn students have spoken to the DP about Kurzban’s behavior because they recognized that he reportedly made troubling violations of University policy. As of now, it is unclear if administrators agree. No administrators from the University have acknowledged the reports of Kurzban’s alleged behavior, or whether any formal action is being taken against him. In the two weeks since the article, Kurzban’s name has not appeared in any public statement. When Penn announced its categorical ban on consensual faculty-student relationships last month, Provost Wendell Pritchett insisted that keeping campus free of sexual misconduct was one of Penn’s “highest priorities.” Earlier in the semester, the Provost penned a school-wide email with Executive Vice President Craig Carnaroli, calling on members of the Penn community to submit suggestions on how to make the University’s procedures around sexual misconduct more “effective and equitable.” If administrators want to adapt and improve the University’s policies around sexual misconduct, they must also be willing to acknowledge when existing policies have been violated. The
University has prohibited sexual relationships between faculty and students “during the teacherstudent relationship” since 1995, meaning that Kurzban’s alleged conduct violated a policy that has been in place for decades.
with his graduate student, whom he had also taught as an undergraduate. Within a week, a Yale spokesperson told reporters from the campus newspaper that Darnell was suspended for one year, without pay.
Penn should acknowledge that Kurzban’s alleged actions violated a decades-old policy, clearly articulate what actions the University plans to take, and clarify Kurzban’s current status on campus.” By keeping silent on the allegations brought against Kurzban, administrators have missed a crucial opportunity to clearly reaffirm to students that they are committed to upholding policies designed to keep this campus safe. Five years ago, when Yale University administrators found themselves in a similar predicament, they opted to be more transparent with their students. Egyptology professor John Darnell engaged in a sexual relationship
Similarly, three days after the Chronicle of Higher Education published an article earlier this year reporting allegations of sexual harassment against Harvard University professor Jose Dominguez, Harvard Provost Alan Garber sent out a university-wide email calling the scandal “a difficult moment for our community.” Later that month, Harvard publicly announced that Dominguez had been placed on administrative leave. This is not the first time that
Penn has stayed quiet on controversy surrounding key personnel. Earlier this year, students were informed that longtime director of the Huntsman Program in International Studies and Business Inge Herman had left the University, but were not given any explanation why. Administrators declined requests from DP reporters asking for more information. In 2016, nearly two dozen Penn employees talked to the DP about inappropriate remarks made by Executive Director of College Houses & Academic Service Martin Redman. At the time, seven former or current CHAS staffers, including four house deans, said they had spoken to Penn’s Division of Human Resources about Redman but multiple administrators contacted declined to comment. This pattern of silence needs to end. Penn should acknowledge that Kurzban’s alleged actions violated a decades-old policy, clearly articulate what actions the University plans to take, and clarify Kurzban’s current status on campus. Administrators have explicitly and repeatedly said in recent years that they are committed to fighting sexual misconduct on campus. Their resounding silence on Kurzban’s alleged behavior undermines that commitment.

“Woven Treasures –
When you step into the store, you step into a fraction of the global artworks here. Everything from everywhere. You have from items from the African continent, from Far East Asia, Central Asia (Afghanistan, India, Pakistan), the Middle East, with Persia at the heart of the Silk Road, and the Caucauses.” – Parviz Yathrebi TAKE A LOOK AT THE MAP BELOW TO SEE THE VARIOUS ITEMS THAT WOVEN TREASURES HAS!
“Woven Treasures is located at the bustling corner of 23rd Street and South Street. Woven Treasures has remained in continuous operation for nearly 30 years. The store itself is easy to get lost in due to its various connecting rooms and its plethora of exotic wares. An easy walk or car ride from campus, the store is deﬁnitely worth a visit!”
On the walls are various African masks from tribes all over the African continent. From the Dogon tribe to tribes in Nigeria, there are various diﬀerent cultures and customs that intersect at Woven Treasures.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA & THE HIMALAYAS
TURKEY “Another country known for their superb rugs, Parviz has a wide selection of Turkish rugs. However, Parviz focuses on more modern rugs from Turkey in his store. One of Parviz’s favorite activities is to purchase Turkish rugs from the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s and recycle them. He often distresses these rugs, or cuts them up and patches them back together (known as patchwork).
“These soy candles are not only inspired by traditional Himalayan candle-making techniques, but are also made right here in the United States. Parviz sourced these candles from Julia Leaphart - a woman inspired by her time in a small village at the foothills of the Himalayas. Hand-made every week, these are made with a natural soy wax blend and high quality essential and fragrance oils. Furthermore, each container is unique, inspired by Leaphart’s forays into ﬂea markets, and completely reusable.”
TUNISIA “Located in northwest Africa, Tunisia has some of the world’s most-renowned towels. Made from hand-picked Egyptian cotton, these towels, also known as fouta, are superior to regular towels due to their both their patterning and lightweightness. Highly absorbent, these towels are extremely easy to care for - they dry quickly and don’t require much water to wash. These towels are also quite versatile, they can be used for anything from a beach towel to a picnic blanket.”
NEPAL/INDIA “On a rack near the front of the store are beautifully colored scarves from both Nepal and India. Also known as pashminas, these scarves and shawls are made of wool from goats in Nepal. Some of the scarves on the rack are also made of silk. As delicate as gossamer, these scarves are high-quality, lightweight, and feature many diﬀerent patterns.”
PERSIA “Widely considered to be one of the best sources of rugs in the world, Persia has a rich tradition in rugs. The rug pictured on the left is an antique rug from the early 1900s and is a traditional prayer rug, which is one of the most popular rug genres in Islamic culture. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of various motifs that reoccur in Persian rugs. Be sure to stop by the store and explore all the diﬀerent patterns!”
“In two unassuming buckets in the store are various antique Indian hand-crafted wooden printing blocks. These stamps are made of Shesham wood, which is also known as Indian Rosewood, and are carved by Indian craftsmen. Used to create patterns on cloth and silk, these stamps are extremely varied in content and also in perfect condition.”

Kurzban that she wanted to end the romantic relationship, but he continued to pursue her at least twice. Kurzban said in an emailed statement that he remembers having “social” interactions with the student, but did not “specifically recall the details of all of these interactions” described by her. “I recall having a good working relationship with this student when she was at Penn and, yes, I did see her in social settings after she had completed my class,” he said. “I did not think that any of our interactions were inappropriate or would make her feel in any way uncomfortable, and I am deeply sorry if I did cause her any discomfort. Reflecting on this situation, I am committed to being vigilant in my personal conduct in the future in all my interactions with others.” The 2016 College graduate said she was disappointed with Kurzban’s response. “The fact that he is unable to realize how his actions could have been uncomfortable to me or other students really speaks to the precarious nature of professor-student relationships in general,” she said. A month before the DP published its April 11 story, Kurzban was apparently removed from his post as undergraduate chair of the Psychology Department. Professor Daniel Swingley is now listed as the department’s “Director of
Undergraduate Studies,” and confirmed to the DP that he took on this role in March. The Integrated Studies Program, which invites a select group of freshmen to study an interdisciplinary set of courses across science, mathematics, and the humanities, no longer lists him on its website as a professor within the program. ISP Director Karen Detlefsen confirmed in an email on April 25 that Kurzban is no longer associated with the program. The University has made no public announcement about Kurzban’s status within the Psychology Department or ISP program, and he is still listed on Penn’s internal course registration system as the co-instructor for an honors seminar in the fall. The Director of the Undergraduate Honors Program in Psychology Sara Jaffee, who is slated to co-teach the course with Kurzban in the fall, did not respond to emails requesting comment. Two weeks after the allegations against Kurzban first emerged, the University has yet to publicly acknowledge the professor’s reported violations of University policy. When approached for comment on the first set of allegations brought against Kurzban, three of Penn’s top administrators did not respond, while two deferred to a statement from University spokesperson Stephen MacCarthy. “We take all allegations of sexual misconduct seriously and investigate them,” MacCarthy wrote in the April 10 email. “However, we do not comment on individual personnel matters.” More recently, in response to inquiries on whether the Provost’s Office was aware of Kurzban’s alleged relationship with the 2016 College graduate, Executive Director of the Provost’s Office Leo Charney replicated the same statement provided by MacCarthy. Charney did not address questions asking what students can expect from the University when administrative policies like this are violated and deferred questions on whether Kurzban would be teaching next semester to administrators in the College of Arts and Sciences. “The question about Professor Kurzban’s teaching for next semester would be a question for his school or department,” he wrote. Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences Steven Fluharty provided a statement saying that he was not aware of this relationship between Kurzban and his advisee, but did not address questions asking whether Kurzban would be teaching a class in the College next semester. “The SAS Dean’s office, the College and the Department of Psychology are not aware of any prior complaints relating to policy violations, but we take such allegations very seriously,” he wrote in response to emails sent to him and the Chair of the Psychology Department Sharon ThompsonSchill. Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences Paul Sniegowski and Associ-
THURSDAY, APRIL 26, 2018 had negative experiences with Kurzban in a sexual capacity (…) to feel comfortable to come forward. I know this isn’t an isolated event, and I know he has a track record of doing this — because he told me.” After their initial kiss, the 2016 College graduate said she did not want to continue the relationship. She texted him two days later, saying, “I’ve been thinking about it, and I’d prefer to keep our relationship just as one of mentorship. I’m really intellectually attracted to you, but think we should not make that physical.” She added, “The power dynamics are just a little too weird. Does this sound cool to you?” Kurzban agreed, texting the student that he “came to the same conclusion” and to “drop me a line on May 16th,” the day after the College Graduation Ceremony. • • •
ate Dean for Graduate Studies Eve Troutt Powell did not respond to multiple emails and calls asking to verify whether Kurzban would be teaching a course next semester. • • • The 2016 College graduate had already taken two courses with Kurzban when she agreed to visit his apartment on Jan. 11, 2016, the Saturday before the first week of spring classes, she said. She knew the way to his apartment well, having been there only weeks before for an end-of-semester party with her classmates in Kurzban’s graduate seminar. He was one of her favorite professors and the two had spent months flirting in class and during advising sessions, she said. One of the first times she thought he was romantically interested in her was at midnight on New Years Eve when he sent her an email that said he was thinking about her. The two exchanged numbers and began to text regularly in the days before she returned to campus for the spring semester. During one conversation, the student mentioned that she had been in Miami, where “it was warm enough to wear a tank top.” Kurzban replied, “Don’t believe you’re in a tank top. I guess a picture would be convincing…” according to messages the student provided to the DP.
That January, the 2016 College graduate returned to campus early because of her role as a resident advisor. She made plans with Kurzban to go for a run or bike ride before classes started. It ended up snowing on their scheduled day, so Kurzban suggested she come to his apartment, she told the DP. (Two of her close friends said the student had told them at the time that Kurzban initiated the meeting.) Before Kurzban and the student kissed, the two spent time going over one of the papers the student wrote in Kurzban’s seminar, which explored the grief process she underwent after the sudden death of a close relative. While they were at his apartment, Kurzban reportedly told the 2016 College graduate that he had conducted romantic relationships with other students before — “one while [the woman] was a student and many after they had graduated,” she recalled. Two of her friends who spoke to the DP said that they remembered her describing this conversation to them shortly after it occurred. The student also said Kurzban offered to switch her to another advisor after they kissed, suggesting that he was aware of the University policy governing faculty-student relationships. “He seemed to know the procedures pretty damn well,” she said. “I want other women who have
Despite that conversation, the student said Kurzban continued to pursue her romantically. Three days later, on Jan. 16, she ran into him while biking around the city, she said. Kurzban reportedly invited her up to his apartment and after chatting, he tried to kiss her again, she said. (One of her friends recalled hearing about this encounter from the student at the time.) That night, at 12:35 a.m. on Jan. 17, Kurzban sent her a text. “Well, that was nice. I confess I’d rather not wait until May to see you again,” he wrote. Slightly later on, when the student asked Kurzban if the relationship was “technically allowed,” he replied, “It’s a bit of a gray area…” On Jan. 22, 2016, after University operations were suspended during a blizzard, Kurzban sent the student another text, expressing interest for the third time after the student had formally indicated that she wanted to ended the relationship. “All normal rules of conduct are suspended during a blizzard,” he wrote, in what the student interpreted as a reference to Penn’s policies on faculty-student relationships. “It was a booty call,” she said later. “I was also not interested and in New York, and I was like ‘haha yeah.’” A month after this exchange, Kurzban emailed the student again asking whether she wanted to be nominated as a candidate for the undergraduate student speaker at the College Graduation Ceremony. “You want to be nominated for this? I’m not sure I can because you’re not a Psych Major, but I can find out. Let me know,” he wrote in an email later provided to the DP. Years later, after reading the DP’s April 11 article, which uncovered Kurzban’s reported sexual relationship with a freshman in one of his courses,
the student and her friends decided to share the account of her relationship with Kurzban. “The article was a reminder of how his behavior was such a pattern,” she said. “I feel like this is my chance to make sure this doesn’t happen again.” Chair of Abuse and Assault Prevention and College junior Kara Hardie said that the power dynamic involved in a faculty-undergraduate relationship can have dangerous implications. “I think that there is a clear power dynamic at play in a professor-student relationship, specifically given that he was directly overseeing [and] teaching the students he was involved in,” Hardie said. “Power dynamics such as this can make it difficult if not impossible to give consent.” Her friends also noted that Kurzban’s behavior seemed inappropriate given the emotional state of the student, who had lost a close family member in 2015. “Everything was consensual and she was excited about him, so in that respect, I wasn’t worried,” one close friend said. “Even though I knew she was fine, I felt like he couldn’t know how vulnerable she was or wasn’t.” The student who had the relationship with Kurzban agreed. “It seemed especially ironic that a professor of psychology didn’t consider that someone’s decision might be influenced by traumatic grief,” she said. Executive Editor Rebecca Tan, Deputy News Editor Manlu Liu, and Senior Reporter Dan Spinelli contributed reporting to this story.
Penn Relays partners with Eco-Reps to increase sustainability Over 100 people will volunteer over the three days BERNIE RODGERS Contributing Reporter
With the help of Penn students, the Penn Relays is taking significant steps to promote sustainability at this year’s three-day event that typically attracts thousands. The Penn Relays is the nation’s oldest and largest track and field meet, typically attracting over 100,000 spectators and competitors to Franklin Field. The sheer size of this event inevitably results in immense waste output, ranging from plastic water bottles to food packaging. This year, the Relays is taking place April 26-28 and there have been measures taken to be more environmentally friendly. Penn Eco-Reps is an on-campus environmental leadership or-
ganization open to students, faculty, and staff that aims to promote both awareness of environmental issues and sustainable behavior across campus. Wharton senior and Eco-Rep Artemis Tiburcio is a major leader in orchestrating the relationship between the organization and Penn Relays. “We worked alongside the Penn Athletics Department as well as with the sustainability department to make sure that our project gets fulfilled,” she said. “Also, we’ve worked with the city of Philadelphia to get recycling and composting bins for free during the event.” Fellow Eco-Rep and College and Engineering sophomore Richard Ling explained the major goals of this year’s project. “We have three main initiatives: reducing plastic usage, increasing landfill diversion, and
volunteer training to make this a community effort,” he said. The project hopes to divert waste from landfills, known as landfill diversion, by promoting recycling and composting. College senior and athlete Regina Salmons noted that during the Relays, waste is often improperly disposed of. “From a fan perspective, Penn Relays is the fullest that I’ve ever seen Franklin Field,” she said. “I was standing in the packed upper tiers and I saw that fans were just dropping their trash in the stadium. No one was throwing it away because you walk up all these steps through all these people and there’s no way to get to a trash can.” Eco-Rep and College junior Hannah Sanders said the project plans to set out waste, recycling, and composting bins, including
eight in the vendor village alone. The project also aims to limit the use of plastic, which often litters the environment. “We’re using smaller water bottles to decrease the plastic volume since in past years Penn has used over 13,000 water bottles,” Ling said. “Also, we’re using a filtration system to fill coolers on the turf so we can possibly not even use the bottles.” Volunteers will oversee a filling station where attendees can refill their water bottles. Sanders said that volunteers will also be promoting awareness of sustainability efforts for the attendees. “Throughout the course of the three days, we have over a hundred people signed up right now,” Sanders said. “This is really essential to help engage attendees to understand their impact on the Earth.”

School. The Wharton Academic Research Building, sitting near the 37th and Spruce streets, will bring all the current Wharton research programs into one central location. “[The building] has been designed as a place for Wharton community members to congregate, discover and collaborate,” the campaign website says. A new student entrepreneurship center called the Venture Lab is set to open at the corner of 40th and Sansom streets. According to Chair of the Power of Penn Campaign Bob Levy, the new building will serve a different purpose than the recently completed Pennovation Center building which serves as an entrepreneurship center with a “corporate-type perspective” for companies and inventors. The Venture Lab, Levy said, is meant specifically to engage all Penn students. “It is point blank open to all students at the University of Pennsylvania, seven days a week for most of the day to provide resources and support,” Levy said. “It is intended to promote entrepreneurship and innovation which are not Wharton or Engineering only.” The campaign will also cover the
expenses for the construction of a new Science Research Building to be built on the south side of 32nd and Walnut streets. It will primarily house energy science research initiatives, bringing together physical scientists and engineers. The building that currently houses the Graduate School of Education will also undergo renovations with the addition of brand new student pavilion. The GSE will merge with neighboring Stiteler Hall and receive an additional two-story building, giving the school an added 25,000 square-feet overall. The campaign will also finance a new indoor training facility behind the Hollenback Center, Penn Dental’s Schattner Pavilion, renovations in the Penn Museum, and the new Pavilion at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. New College House West, a new College House announced last fall, is also included in the list of projects that the campaign will tackle. The official announcement at the time stated that it was needed to accommodate increased on-campus housing demand, but The Daily Pennsylvanian’s interviews with various administrative offices suggested that the long-term goal of the construction was to provide capacity that would allow for renovations of older colleges houses like the Quad in the future.

the students used material from local, online, and University archives. This semester, the group included Doolittle, College senior VanJessica Gladney, College freshman Carson Eckhard, 2015 College graduate Breanna Moore, College sophomore Dillon Kersh, and College sophomore Brooke Krancer, the social media director at The Daily Pennsylvanian. The presentation Monday began with an introduction from history professor Kathleen Brown, who serves as a mentor. The students also presented evidence showing that the Academy conducted fundraising tours in South Carolina as well as a Jamaican tour in the late 18th century. Doolittle explained that this information, which is supported by early Trustees Minutes, indicated that the Academy, with the involvement of top administrators like the first Penn Provost William Smith, solicited funds from wealthy donors, many of whom owned slaves and plantations. According to Eckhard,
many Southern students, who could have financially benefitted from slave labor, also attended the University in the 19th century. Moore presented her findings on her family legacy in relation to Penn. She tracked her lineage to her fourth great-grandmother who was enslaved by William Wallace Anderson, a Perelman School of Medicine graduate. Moore noted that while Anderson graduated from Penn in 1810, it took more than two centuries for someone in her family to attend an Ivy League university. “One year after I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, only 751 African Americans students were enrolled as undergraduates,” Moore said. “This is a direct correlation to the link to the slavery and inequalities that persist in African American communities.” Moore expressed gratitude for her education in her closing remarks and described financial aid for students like herself as “a step toward the right side of history.” Another piece of evidence came from using medical lectures and notes from the
Library Company of Philadelphia along with other primary sources. Eckhard, who joined the group this semester, explained this evidence outlines the Medical School’s historic connections to slavery. “It’s interesting where information comes from,” Eckhard said. “Because slavery was so deep and pervasive in our society, the documents of it are scattered everywhere.” Eckhard described how University lecturers used a collection of skulls to support the claim of a racial hierarchy, which other professors used to argue in favor of slavery. Much of the collection, she noted, is still on display in the Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. The group made several suggestions concerning Penn’s reaction to their findings. They urged the University to retract its statement made by a spokesperson Ron Ozio in September 2016 that Penn had “found no direct University involvement with slavery or the slave trade.” They also called on Penn to join the Universities Studying Slavery coalition which

includes Georgetown, Brown, and Columbia universities and to help educate the community on campus and in Philadelphia about this aspect of its history. The group concluded with a question and answer segment. Many of the students expressed frustration at the lack of material capturing the experience of the enslaved individuals whom they studied and expressed their intention to continue with the project. After the release of the group’s initial findings, the University created a working group under the guidance of Provost Wendell Pritchett to “examine the role of slavery in Penn’s early years.” Since its formation in January, several students expressed concern over the role of the faculty group. Gladney wrote a feature for 34th Magazine criticizing inaccuracies in the announcement of the group co-authored by Penn President Amy Gutmann and Pritchett. “For me, ‘Was Penn involved in slavery?’ is an easy question to answer,” she wrote. “Everything founded during America’s colonial period has ties to slavery.”

Who will draft Penn’s Justin Watson? Five events to watch at the 2018 Penn Relays CARTER COUDRIET
In a couple days, the NFL will welcome 256 new faces to the league. It’s looking increasingly likely that one of them will be Justin Watson. Penn’s very own pro-to-be is looking to become the first Penn football player to be selected in the NFL Draft since offensive tackle Jeff Hatch by the
Giants in 2002. Getting drafted out of the Ivy League is tough, but rumors from around the league have suggested that Watson has good odds of being drafted. The most significant came from NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt who said he was “hearing good things” about Watson and guessed he could go as high as the fourth round. Watson’s impressive pro day has generated interest: the receiver has reportedly been visiting with several teams the last couple weeks, indicating that he is a sought-after commodity.
Without professing to be a draft analyst, and keeping Watson’s strengths and weaknesses in mind, here are the ten teams I think are most likely to pick up the Penn superstar. And, keeping in accordance with DP Sports precedent, if someone not on this list drafts Watson, I will happily eat my words. 10. Cleveland Browns Coming off what was perhaps the worst season in NFL history, the Browns obviously need help in a lot of places. They only have three late-round picks with none in round seven, but there’s reason to believe the Browns
could use one on Watson. New general manager John Dorsey spent four years with the Chiefs and drafted a star in Division II product Tyreek Hill, despite Hill not being invited to the NFL Combine. They also drafted Princeton tight end Seth DeValve in 2016, and DeValve is still on the roster. 9. New York Jets The Jets haven’t had a 1,000-yard receiver in two seasons, and while I don’t think Watson would be that guy immediately, he’d be a great checkSEE WATSON PAGE 16
80 year olds sprinting, steeplechase, and USA vs. the World races highlight the event SAM MITCHELL Associate Sports Editor
There’s no shortage of big events to catch over the three days of Penn Relays this weekend, but with so much action going on, it can be a bit overwhelming to decide which ones are must-see. With that in mind, here are five events that you certainly won’t want to miss. 1. Masters Mixed 100m dash 80 and older Sometimes, slow and steady wins the race. In this event, that’s certain to be true. Participants must be at least 80 years old, and although it won’t be the fastest 100-meter race you’ll ever see, this is an event that can’t be missed. These old folks will be putting on a display that is the culmination of nearly a century of training and conditioning, and are far and away among the fittest members of their age group. The champion will likely have to run the distance in well-under half a minute to take home the gold, but viewers will likely be treated to over an entire minute of action as all 18 participants make their way towards the finish line. Last year, 81 year old Bobby Whilden won the race with a time of 14.65 seconds. Unfortunately, there will be no centenarians in this year’s race, although George Scott will come close when he competes as a 97 year old. Scott and the rest of the runners will begin at 3:08 p.m. on Saturday. 2. USA vs. the World Penn prides itself on being a University of the best and brightest students from around the world. That’s all well and good, but we’re still just college students. If you actually want to see some people who are the best in the world at what they do, make sure to catch these events at Penn Relays. In years past, viewers have seen the likes of eight-time gold medalist Usain Bolt, who holds the world records in the 100m, 200m and 4×100m relay, grace Franklin Field. This year’s contest will feature two USA teams taking on runners from a variety of countries including Guyana, Haiti, and Jamaica. If the best running in the world isn’t a big enough draw for you, then some good old fashioned patriotism might do the trick. Or, cheer on ‘the World’ team and see if the runners who travelled the furthest to get here can go the distance. Either way, this is a must-see event, if only for a chance to potentially witness someone break a world-record. 3. College Women’s 3000m Penn women’s track is coming off of its first Ivy indoor championship in over two decades. They were led to victory by senior Abby Hong, SEE PENN RELAYS PAGE 12

The story of Penn track and field’s season up to Penn Relays
Records fall, titles are taken and young Quakers shine DANNY CHIARODIT Associate Sports Editor
So far, so good for the Red and Blue. With the Penn Relays beginning Thursday, Penn track and field will look to put on a solid performance in front of a raucous crowd at Franklin Field. The Quakers have had a successful outdoor season thus far, with both teams setting multiple records throughout the year. The Red and Blue opened the outdoor season with the Penn Challenge on March 24 following a second place men’s finish at the Ivy League Indoor Heps and a championship for the women. Penn had a hot
start to the outdoor season, as the women’s team finished first in the Penn Challenge, while the men came in second out of seven teams. Sophomore Maura Kimmel broke her own program records in the discus (50.80m) and shot put (15.25m), foreshadowing what would be a terrific year for the thrower. On the track, the women’s quartet of freshmen Hannah Lueders, Caroline O’Neil, and Camille Dickson and senior Taylor McCorkle dashed to a time of 45.90 in the 4x100m relay, which was the meet’s best time and fourth in program history. The men’s team saw first-place finishes from sophomore Anthony Okolo (55.06) in the 400m hurdles and senior Patrick Hally (3:50.80) in the 1,500m. A week later, the Quakers

The women saw standout performances from junior Anna
Peyton Malizia and senior Abby Hong. Malizia — the
second-seed for the Penn Relays’ high jump on Saturday — set the school’s outdoor record by leaping 1.76m. Hong, for her part, ran the 5,000m with a program record time of 16:05.26. Additionally, the 4x400 team of senior Candace Taylor, sophomore Cecil Ene, freshman Uchechi Nwogwugwu, and O’Neil raced to a new school record with a time of 3:37.17. On April 6, at Princeton’s Sam Howell Invitational, the Red and Blue won first place in eight events on the day. One of the key performers was junior Rachel Lee Wilson, who reset her own program record in the hammer throw with a 60.51m mark. The following weekend was SEE BREAKDOWN PAGE 12

who also won an individual in the 3000m along the way. Now, she’ll look to test her talents outdoors, against the best competition from around the country. Over fifty runners from dozens of colleges will be competing in this event, and runners from around Division I will be participating. This includes schools like NC State from the ACC and Philadelphia-rival Villanova from the Big East. It’ll definitely be worth it to come out, show some Penn pride,
and support Abby Hong and Danielle Orie in this race. Oh, and it’s on Thursday at 8:35 p.m., so it shouldn’t interfere with any latenight reading day festivities. 4. College Men’s 110m Hurdles Championship and Men’s 3000m Steeplechase Many people think that running is hard. You know what’s hard? Running with stuff in the way. That’s exactly what you’ll get to see these athletes do in the hurdles and steeplechase. In the steeplechase, runners traverse a long distance while occasionally jumping over hurdles and running through

puddles. It was invented and popularized in Ireland and the UK (like many obscure sports) and is meant to simulate a race from one church steeple to another. While the 110m hurdles also has obstacles, it is a totally different animal. Here, runners have to achieve perfect form and stride length in order to run such a short distance at their top speed while avoiding the hurdles. The race is over so quickly that if they get caught up in one, their chances of winning are all but finished. It’s a thrilling and technically difficult race that will be a fascinating opportunity for any track aficionado. The steeplechase will be held on Thursday at 7:40 p.m. and the 110m hurdles will be held on Saturday at 3:20 p.m. 5. High School Boys’ and Girls’ 4x100 Championship of America Sure, sure, high school was a million years ago and you’re way too cool and old now to watch high schoolers run track. But, how many high schoolers did you know that got to Philadelphia for a national championship race? Here, every high schooler will have been among the best in their home town, and will be put to the test at Penn Relays. At such a young age, competing at such a high level is a physical and mental achievement that should be lauded. The event to watch is the 4x100m relays. Not only are these high schoolers some of the fastest in the country, but they’re on a team with three other high schoolers that have to work together to accomplish an incredible achievement. The events will be at 1:45 and 2:27 p.m. on Saturday.

a busy one for Penn, as many of the Quakers competed in either the Tennessee Relays, Temple Invitational, or Bison Outdoor Classic, hosted by Bucknell. Junior Calvary Rogers dominated in the 200m with a pro-
gram record time of 20.90, tying a mark set in 2005. On the women’s side, Nwogwugwu had a terrific showing in the 400m (53.17), breaking a Penn record. Kimmel continued to prove her greatness by resetting her shot put school record with a throw of 15.55m. This past weekend, the
Quakers garnered some momentum going into the Penn Relays. The men and women set five new top-10 program records. This featured a meet record time of 45.33 from senior Barbara Biney, senior Taylor McCorkle, freshman Camille Dickson, and Ene. Another meet record was set in the
pole vault by sophomore Sean Clarke, as he cleared a season best mark of 5.33m. The Quakers’ recent stretch of form has solid leading up to the much-anticipated Relays. Now, they have the opportunity to continue this success on one of the biggest track and field stages of the world.
Meet Parviz Yathrebi. He’s
the owner of Woven Treasures, a quaint store located at 23rd & South Streets, which imports and sells handmade rugs, textiles, and jewelry from all around the world. Parviz moved to Philadelphia from Iran in 1977 to attend The University of Pennsylvania, where he studied English. He worked hard during his time at Penn, but he was forced to withdraw from the university after two years due to complications from the Iranian Revolution, which began in 1979. Parviz finished his studies at a local college, where he earned a degree in dental technology. Without his family in the United States to support him, Parviz was forced to take on odd jobs to get by. He worked in a restaurant, as a taxicab driver, and even as a Jack and Jill ice cream truck driver, which was his favorite job. But Parviz continued to struggle with what he could do in this seemingly foreign city that would also alleviate his homesickness. “I am from Persia, from Iran – what do we have there?” He questioned. To Parviz, the answer was clear: rugs. Parviz felt that creating a rug business was the most natural
way to move forward because it brought him one step closer to the Iranian culture that he grew up with. He already knew the names of all the cities where the rugs were crafted, but his knowledge was initially limited to that of a regular Iranian. Parviz quickly became an ambassador for Persian rugs and culture in the United States. In the beginning, opening the rug business proved difficult. Parviz did not have the contacts, nor the funding, that was needed to import the rugs, which can cost anywhere between a few hundred dollars to nearly $60,000. But, Parviz, a natural businessman, was lucky as he was able to bond with rug merchants in NYC, most of whom were Iranian. The merchants took Parviz under their wing and instantly provided him with rugs, without checking his credit. By 1986, Parviz opened his own store on 22nd & South Streets. Parviz exclusively sold rugs, up until a few years ago. Today, he sells hundreds of products, which he sources from all around the world. Parviz takes a trip once a year and visits countries across Europe, Asia, and Africa on the hunt for goods he believes will be perfect for his loyal customers. His store is the product of just that: the walls
are lined with tiles from Persia, Turkey, and Morocco, textiles from Central Asia and Turkey, and ceremonial masks from Africa. Tables are covered in Himalayan candles, affordable handmade jewelry, tiles, dishes, and more. Free space is filled with rugs from India, Iran, Turkey, and Pakistan. Woven Treasures is truly a representation of dozens of countries around the world; Parviz likes to call his store a “micro-world.” Parviz wants Penn students to learn from his passion and from his experiences as an Iranian immigrant who pursued his passions and became successful from doing so. “Dear Penn Students,” Parviz writes, “pay attention to what inside of you tells you that you love. Pursue that. Go for that. Don’t go for the money, go for what you love. Once you find that, you will work without getting tired, without any frustration, and it is going to be a joy for the rest of your life.” Parviz invites everyone to come and visit Woven Treasures, located at 23rd & South Streets, “so they can come and see the world.” His products are connected through countries, cultures, and traditions: “Everything here is somehow intertwined,” he shows proudly.

Top athletes from all levels come to Penn Relays Four non-Olympic athletes to look out for this weekend YOSEF WEITZMAN Sports Editor
Thousands of athletes of all ages will converge on University City for the 124th Penn Relays this weekend, including a number of Olympians. Superstars like Justin Gatlin grace the Relays practically every year, but there are some high schoolers and collegiate athletes that will also draw eyes this weekend. Before you head over to Franklin Field to watch this year’s competitions, get to know the biggest non-Olympic stars who will be taking the track. Thelma Davies The Relays attract athletes from across the globe, but Girard College high school junior Thelma Davies will add some local flavor to this weekend’s races.
Competing at the Relays for the first time in her life, Davies will be running in Thursday’s High School Girl’s 4x100-meter heats and will be hoping to help lead her newly-assembled team to an appearance in Friday afternoon’s 4x100m finals. Despite this being her Relays debut, Davies’ past results prove that she’s up to speed. For the past two seasons, Davies has won gold in the PIAA 2A 100m and 200m races. Her freshman times of 11.58 and 23.85 seconds, respectively, were even fast enough to set the races’ records. Raheem Chambers Auburn sophomore Raheem Chambers has a very busy afternoon planned for himself this Friday. And if all goes well, he might just have himself a busy Saturday too. The Kingston, Jamaica native is slated to compete in the heats for four different college men’s events on Friday — the

4x100m, the 4x200m, the 4x400m, and the 100m dash — and depending on how he and
his teammates finish, he will compete in the finals for those events on Saturday, too.
After a stellar freshman season saw him earn All-American honors in the 4x400m, 400m, and 100m, Chambers followed suit with another All-American performance at last month’s NCAA indoor championships. Josh Hoey Josh Hoey will be off to national powerhouse Oregon next year, but for now, the Bishop Shanahan high school senior will get one last chance to shine in the Penn Relays. Hoey will compete in the High School Boys’ Mile Run Championship once again, and this time around, he’ll have a bad taste in his mouth. After winning gold in the event his sophomore year, Hoey finished in fourth last year 4:15.25. The good news for Hoey is that he’s looked absolutely stellar in the past couple months, highlighted by an 800m time of 1:47.67 that was the fastest in US high school history. He’ll get to show off in that dis-
tance again this weekend as he’s slated to compete in the Boys’ Small School 4x800m with his younger brother, Jonah, as one of his teammates. Kelsey Harris Indiana is just one of several high-profile track programs competing in the Relays this weekend, and junior Kelsey Harris is one of the Hoosiers’ biggest sars. Harris will be competing in the Womens’ Championship of America Invitational races in the 4x800m, the 4x1500m, and the Distance Medley, and seems well-primed for success after her impressive performance at the NCAA indoor championships in March. Running the 800m leg in the DMR, Harris turned in the race’s fastest split with a time of 2:03.81. That helped lift her team to a fourth-place finish and Indiana’s first-ever firstteam All-American nod in the DMR.
Penn hosts one of a kind symposium on athletes and abuse Panels talk bystanders, reporting process and more WILLIAM SNOW Senior Sports Reporter
In the wake of the Larry Nassar scandal in USA Gymnastics, Penn hosted a symposium on Wednesday on athletes and abuse. The day-long event featured panels discussing the sexual abuse of athletes from children to Olympians and every level in between. Penn partnered with CHILD USA and the Ortner Center on Violence and Abuse in Relationships to bring in a number of highprofile speakers to share their perspectives on the subject. Among those speaking at the first symposium of its kind were Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro,
former NFL player and current Wharton MBA student Justin Tuck, and Olympic gold medalist Dominique Moceanu. Many of the speakers throughout the day tended to echo similar points — namely, that the issue of the abuse of athletes is a pressing one that must be addressed headon with open and honest dialogue. Many also added thoughts on their distaste for the stigmatization of speaking about sexual assault. “This is an issue that thrives in darkness,” Chris Newlin of the National Children’s Advocacy Center said during one session. “Once we leave this room, we have to keep talking about it,” echoed Patty Dailey Lewis of the Beau Biden Foundation to a room mostly full of middle-aged adults with some connection to the cause.
A number of Penn administrators — including Associate Athletic Director Kevin Bonner and Senior Associate Athletic Director for Intercollegiate Programs Rudy Fuller — were in attendance for the college-centric portion of the symposium. In that session, panelists shed light on a number of important topics for college students and administrators. Ann Corker, a researcher at the University of Kentucky, presented findings on the promise showed by engaged bystander programs, where training student-athletes how to be an active bystander correlated with a 25 percent decrease in sexual assaults over four years, including a 36 percent drop in “too drunk to consent” sexual assault cases. A representative of Penn Athletics in the audience noted that Penn’s
implementation of other related training programs have been important in educating athletes on the options and resources available to them in instances of sexual assault. Corker’s additional findings that alcohol and sexual assault share an intertwining relationship seemed to be in line with the recommendations of Penn’s recent task force addressing sexual assault on campus. Another point emphasized throughout the symposium was the disproportionate rate of sexual assaults for ethnic minorities and LGBTQ student-athletes. Penn professor Kathleen Brown noted how these disproportionate rates must be addressed, while also expressing that the effects of sexual assault live on with survivors for a lifetime.
But Penn, along with other NCAA member schools, are working to increase bystander education and reporting rates while decreasing incidents of sexual assault across all categories. Now, each NCAA member school’s president, Title IX coordinator, and athletic director must all sign a document acknowledging they understand NCAA rules and regulations regarding athlete abuse and are training staff and athletes alike to reduce sexual assault on campus. “I learned a lot about the measures being taken to protect athletes and children from sexual and physical abuse,” said Penn women’s basketball manager Jameira Johnson, who is spending her summer working with CHILD USA and was the only student-athlete in attendance for
the college-centric portion of the seminar. “The speakers were so influential and passionate about protecting the rights of adolescent athletes, adult athletes, and children overall.” Johnson continued to note that this summer, she would be working on a new commission founded by Penn professor and CHILD USA CEO Marci Hamilton to investigate the institutions and individuals enabling the sexual abuse of athletes by Nassar. Along with the symposium, such a commission represents a newfound commitment to combating the abuse of athletes. If all of the speakers on Wednesday got their way, the conversation will be helped along, as the NCAA and its member schools inch toward progress.

Natalie Stefan thrives for womenâ€™s lax after position change Senior moved to defense after multiple knee injuries WILL DiGRANDE Associate Sports Editor
She may be in a new position, but itâ€™s not slowing her down at all. Natalie Stefan joined Penn womenâ€™s lacrosse as a midfielder, but she will leave the program as a defender. After suffering multiple ACL injuries over the course of her college career, the senior has moved to a new role on the team, and sheâ€™s thriving. With the departure of talent in the backfield last year, Stefan was earmarked to fill the hole. Being a middie, she already had some familiarity with the style of defense, so she was the go-to choice for
the team. â€œWith the talent that we had coming in, it was just better for the team as a whole if I moved lower,â€? she said. â€œ[Coach Corbett] asked if I would, and honestly Iâ€™d do anything for the team. Itâ€™s been great and Iâ€™ve always said I liked playing defense better than attack, so itâ€™s been a lot of fun for me.â€? Stefanâ€™s previous stint at midfield means she has the ability to be an unexpected force on quick-transition offense. Although sheâ€™s now in the backfield full time, Stefan has chances to bring the ball up the field and create chances to score.

ly lost to Cal Poly in two sets. Although their glass slipper had finally been broken, the impact of the tournament and the teamâ€™s run was not lost on the players. â€œIt was completely surreal, thinking about it and seeing the evolution of the team and the club,â€? Rivera reflected. Rivera, along with outside hitter Matteo Sordello and Kriz, were all named to the All-Tournament team. â€œWeâ€™ve had our ups and downs like every other team,â€? Kriz said. â€œGetting to know all the guys on this team, I probably wouldnâ€™t have hung out with any undergrads if I wasnâ€™t playing volleyball, it would have just been me hanging out with the other people in my lab. So meeting a bunch of new people who also like volleyball is pretty cool.â€? â€œThis was my last year on the team and I realized that this would be the last time that I would ever play competitive volleyball,â€? Rivera echoed. â€œGoing from a not so great team with great guys to a great team with great guys, and going home with a plaque that says I made the all-tournament team, I was like â€˜well these 20 years of playing volleyball were worth itâ€™ and I am glad this is how it ended.â€? It truly was a storybook ending for the Red and Blue.
next match to the eventual national champion, San Diege State, in two sets. Although the Quakers lost the second game, their second-place finish in the pool earned them a spot in the gold bracket. Their reward for their accomplishment was a date with perennial powerhouse University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, a six time national champion and winners of three-straight titles from 2014-2016. However, the crowd and experience were in the Quakersâ€™ favor. â€œIt was surreal because everyone was cheering for us, and they really wanted us [to beat Oshkosh],â€? Rivera said. â€œWeâ€™re an older team, and thatâ€™s what helped us.â€? The Quakers prevailed in a tight three-set match to upset UW-Oshkosh. The win put the Red and Blue into the Elite Eight for the first time and in the most unlikely fashion. â€œThat was our best match of the whole year,â€? Kriz said emphatically. â€œWe knew that as soon as it went into the third set we knew we were going to win,â€? Rivera said. â€œMost of us have been playing volleyball for far longer than these other [teams]. So even though they might beat us in athleticism and they donâ€™t get as tired as we do, we have the mental stamina to stay in the game.â€? The Cinderella team subsequent-

would not have to go without some of its top players. But that wasnâ€™t all. Before arriving at the event, the Quakers were ready to compete in the 1AA bracket, the division they had competed in previously at the NCVF Nationals. But this year, the Red and Blue landed in St. Louis to find that they had been moved up a division to 1A. â€œWe thought it might have been a mistake,â€? said co-captain Adrian Rivera, who is a PhD candidate in cellular-molecular biology. To get to the gold bracket, Penn would have to first get through pool play. The Quakers were matched up with Marquette, Missouri and UNLV in their pool to start the tournament. They defeated UNLV in the first match and then took down Missouri. But in the final match, which would determine the winner of the pool and an automatic berth in the gold bracket, the Quakers fell to Marquette in two sets. By not winning their pool, Penn had to go to the â€œchallenge round.â€? In their subsequent win against California State University-Chico, to land them in one of eight championship pools with Illinois and San Diego State. Penn won its first match against Illinois before dropping its

Bats fall silent for baseball ahead of crucial Columbia series Quakers’ look for offensive rebound in trip to New York ISAAC SPEAR Sports Reporter
BASEBALL PENN DELAWARE
The Quakers’ offense laid an egg against the Blue Hens. Penn baseball never got its bats going and ended up losing at Delaware 3-1. After scoring at least six runs in each of their last five contests, the Quakers’ bats were stymied by effective pitching and timely defense by the Blue Hens. Delaware (21-17, 7-5 CAA) scored two of its three runs via the long ball, with junior infielder Erik Bowren and outfielder Kyle Baker each bashing solo shots. Meanwhile, freshman pitcher Winston
Allen held the Red and Blue scoreless through five innings, striking out five. Penn (12-22-1, 6-8-1 Ivy) was in prime position to grab the lead in the seventh inning. Even with five players reaching base, they were only able to manage one run in the frame. With the bases loaded, Delaware was unable to turn freshman infielder Eduardo Malinowski’s grounder into an inning-ending double play, allowing Andrew Murnane to score from third. Third baseman Matt McGeagh, who has delivered in big spots for Penn all season, was unable to convert with two outs and the bases loaded two batters later. As is the case with most weekday non-conference games, the Quakers utilized their bullpen arms heavily. Freshman right-handed pitcher Robby Cerulle made his first start on the mound and quickly found himself in trouble in the bottom of

the first inning, but was able to escape without allowing a run thanks to a double play, one of four converted by the Red and Blue defense. Senior Jordan Della Valle relieved Cerulle in the third and allowed two runs in two innings of work.
This weekend, the Red and Blue will look to rebound against Columbia in New York City. The Lions (14-24, 9-6) currently sit tied with Harvard for second in the Ivy League. After two crushing defeats against Cornell last weekend, the
Quakers find themselves in sixth place and are in full must-win mode for the rest of the season. The upcoming series against Columbia presents a valuable opportunity for the Quakers, however, as they can gain a lot of ground on

a team above them in the standings with a sweep. Columbia will come into the weekend on a three-game losing streak, including two losses to fifthplace Princeton. A trio of sluggers lead the Lions’ offense. Infielder Joe Engel, sophomore catcher Liam McGill, and senior infielder Randell Kanemaru are all batting over .315 and sporting over a .400 on-base percentage. Columbia’s pitching rotation is likewise led by multiple starters; senior Harrisen Egly and sophomore southpaw Ben Wereski are likely to start the first two games of the series. The Quakers are hoping that the game against Delaware was just a hiccup on the offensive side and that it will get back on track this weekend. They will need all the help they can get in order to pull off the improbable and make it all the way to the Ivy League Championship.
