Flinging as a Black Student

A Letter From the Editors

Dear Penn Students,

We would like to wish you all a happy and safe Spring Fling 2016! Although this should always be a fun time on campus, we are always reminded of the past experiences of our friends and of ourselves during this time of year.

We want to remind you all that microagressions at frat parties, dirty looks, and blatant disrepsectful comments are not okay. Yet, this is sometimes the daily life for black students at Penn.

If something happens this weekend, and you would like an an outlet to share it on, don’t hesitate to fill out the form in the box below. Positive experiences are welcome and accepted too!

Fling should be a time on campus where students of all backgrounds can have a little fun and blow of some steam before finals. Here’s to a great Fling, whether it’s your first one, your last one, or one in between.

Fling Safe,
Amari and Matré
