Jean Madeline Aveda Institute beautifies hair and bodies with a wide array of pampering services while preparing tomorrow's stylists to forge the fashion frontier. Wielding an arsenal of contemporary knowledge and organic Aveda products, these well-educated cosmetologists-in-training can sculpt over-tussled manes into timeless coiffeurs ($16) or snip a couple inches off to avoid sweeping stray candy wrappers across the floor with every step ($12). An aromatherapy wrap can relax away inner city stressors by massaging in a choice of scented oils ($35). Those whose facial planes have dulled with the sandpapering of time will enjoy the customized facial, where a torso massage is combined with a mix of products to treat specific skin types until countenances are as radiant as a cherub in a spotlight ($33). Jean Madeline Aveda Institute also offers waxing services to lay bare lips ($8), brows ($11), underarms ($20), dorsal fins, and more.
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn up to 500 calories with each go-round.

Seasoned professionals lead the courses, helping understudies hone their use of light, framing, and timing. Students furnish their own cameras, and can tote along any ancillary equipment such as tripods, laptops, and flashes that relate to the course at hand.
In the country's oldest stadium, University of Pennsylvania's elite team kicks off the fall season with home games against Lafayette and Fordham. As fireworks arc over the field at the home opener, the Quakers will attempt to defend the storied 100-yard battleground against the Lafayette Leopards, known for surprising opponents with clever plays and blending in with the field's polka-dot goalpost. On a crisp October eve, the Quakers dodge the bold red jerseys and horned helmets of the Fordham Rams. With a strong home record, Head Coach Al Bagnoli and his squadron of gridiron giants aim to open the season with crowd-pleasing matches that make for riveting nights out with friends, new dormmates, and imaginary professors.
