New Year's resolutions

When it comes to resolutions, the traditional New Years biggies lose weight, get fit, get finances in order, clean out that attic, get more sleep, watch less TV, eat more home cooking arent that common among Penn students. Instead, it appears that our students had bigger, more metaphysical concerns on their minds at New Years. Penn students just want to be perfect.

Brushing and flossing every morning is not enough for this crowd. Check out their resolutions for the new year enriching friendships, making friends with vegetables, and saving the world top the list for 2001. Of course, not everyone buys this whole New Years resolution business, as Sarah Zilinski made clear.
