UPenn and Amy Gutmann and LGBTQIn the video clip above, Penn President Amy Gutmann addresses recent bullying and discrimination against the LGBTQ community by participating in the "It Gets Better" project (www.itgetsbetterproject.com)

And this is in line with Penn's outreach to the gay community this year.  Per the DP,
"The LGBT Center is working with Penn Admissions to help identify LGBT applicants and strong allies for the first time this year. Although this system does not give such applicants a “leg up,” Schoenberg said, it does provide students who have been accepted from this pool with information about Penn’s LGBT life."
Thank you for your support Dr. Gutmann!

UPenn and Mike Karz and Robert DeNiro and Lea Michele and Glee
Just a bit of fun casting news regarding Mike Karz (C'89, W'89) follow-up film to his last year's Valentine's Day.

In his upcoming "New Year's Eve" film, the following stars are reported to be attached: Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hilary Swank, Ashton Kutcher, Lea Michele and Abigail Breslin.

Per the Hollywood Reporter,
"De Niro will play a bitter dying man in a hospital, while Pfeiffer will be a frustrated executive secretary who decides to tackle her unfulfilled resolutions. Swank would play a producer of the famed Times Square New Year's Eve show. Kutcher would play a guy who hates New Year's Eve." (source)
So many stars in one film! As noted HERE, Mike figured out the formula to making this all happen.

Last night Penn undergrad Siddharth Chandrasekhar (Eng, W'11) qualified for the semifinals on Jeopardy! College Championship.

And like the story we reported about HERE, this wasn't the only time Penn represented and advanced on the show.

After the jump, find out why Alex Trebeck told Siddharth that if he missed the question, he "couldn't go home again" (to Penn)!

Whether it's dedicating a song to DT readers for my "Love Week" or dedicating a song to the Phillies, the Glee club definitely knows how to serenade.

Recently, both the Glee Club and the Penn Singers Light Opera Company helped pull off the mother of all serenades on a Philadelphia SEPTA train during a popular Philadelphia attraction tour.

After the jump watch these groups partake in a surprise wedding proposal!

I think you'll agree that this video is quite moving. ;)

UPenn and Austin music
Find out why Ben is crossing his fingers!
It's been over a year now since we started documenting our DT exclusive music and actor career journeys with 3 recent alumni. The key to these series has been capturing that immediate time right after college filled with hope and attainable aspirations when the world is your oyster.  I hope it has been as refreshing and inspiring for you DT readers to watch the achievements of these young alumni as it has been for me to report it.

On that note, last week we covered these 5 important lessons any actor should take to heart before getting into the business.

Now, today, Austin musicians Ben Naecker (C'09, Water Polo) and Blake West (W'09, Jazz Combos):

  • sum up their year
  • discuss what exciting endeavor is on the horizon 
  • and share with us the production process from start to finish of one great (!) song they worked on. This should definitely be enlightening to anyone who has wondered how songs get produced.  

And find out after a year whether despite initial intentions a real job is manifesting itself for one of them...  hmmm....
