The Penn-pire, a conglomerate of academic, social, professional, and personal challenges, was broken down into palatable bits and pieces at this October's GBM. A friendly competition of BWUA's own rendition of The Game of Life revealed solutions to challenges and obstacles facing Penn students across all four years. 

  Director of Marketing Mikayla Barnett explains the rules of the game to each of the representatives from the freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior classes. The game consisted of five rounds with each round containing four questions, one for each representative. Each representative was permitted to consult the rest of their class on the correct answer to each question. Every correct answer won one step forward and every incorrect answer held the player in his or her current position.

Game question topics included: Penn's academic and professional resources, time management tips and priority assessment advice. These topics applied to semester phases in the life of each freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior student. Questions of the "What would you do?" variety elicited personal responses from members of each class. Most of these responses were correct according to the guide to navigating the Penn-pire and others were close second best options.

  The outstanding performance of each class and their respective representatives forced the game into a tie-break round. The first representative to give two out of three correct responses would win the game. The senior class rep seemed to be the most excited to answer this first tie-break question while Sophomore rep, Amir Baiyina HEMM Co-Chair, took a more subdued pensive approach.  The question is: Who won???
