In lauding “Crazy Rich Asians” as the Holy Grail for Asians in film, we have set the bar too low. By confining its stars to playing people who are, for the most part, just a summation of their racial identities, the film leaves behind a gap in Asian representation that has yet to be bridged.
It disappoints me to see that a fellow Princetonian would fail to empathize with his international peers, or at least to see the nonsense behind the U.S. government’s attempts at “improving” its immigration system.
Managing editor and migrant student Sam Parsons recently offered his perspective on the state of America’s immigration system. In what quickly morphs from an insightful remark on the often untold vocational difficulties faced by international students to a partisan diatribe, Parsons lurches into a clumsy yet familiar attack on Trump and his not-so-recent failure to pass immigration reform.
While we have had our attention focused on the southern border, the Trump administration and Republican Party have launched waves of attacks on America’s mainstream legal immigration channels.
In an email statement, Assistant Vice President for Communications Daniel Day confirmed the University’s support for the inclusion of race in college applications. Day pointed to President Christopher Eisgruber ’83’s response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2016 decision in Fisher v. Texas and a 2015 compliance review of the University’s undergraduate admission process by the Office for Civil Rights.
As comprehensive as pre-medical requirements are in some areas, they are lacking in others, ones that are critical to an effective career in medicine.
On Aug. 3, U.S. District Judge John D. Bates upheld his earlier ruling that the Trump administration must restore the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in a lawsuit brought up by the University, Maria De La Cruz Perales Sanchez ’18, and Microsoft. DACA grants protection to undocumented immigrants who came to the country illegally as children.
Without Neotropical migratory birds, ecosystems across the Americas would unravel. By eating millions of locusts, ants, and mosquitoes every year, migratory birds act as an important natural control on insect populations. Many species of plant depend upon migratory birds to pollinate or disperse their seeds. Ecologists often consider migratory birds to be “indicator species,” because the size and success of their populations reflect wider trends about the health of the ecosystems they inhabit.
... Flat Earth arguments are scientifically false, and their proponents’ overwhelming skepticism is unjustified.
Journalists at Princeton are neuroscientists, pre-med students, philosophers, sociologists, mathematicians, artists, computer scientists, pre-law students, athletes, musicians, poets, and writers. In other words, journalists at Princeton are you.
Like a lithe cat, history professor Kevin M. Kruse carefully eyes his prey before pouncing. Only Kruse’s prey is ahistorical facts and his territory is Twitter.
From July 9 to Sep. 1, the University will be hosting 13 scholars through the Visiting Scholars and Artists from Puerto Rico program. The program provides a space for researchers affected by the devastation of Hurricane Maria to advance their work. They will be provided with office space, access to library and scholarly resources, a stipend for living expenses and off-campus housing, and opportunities to interact with colleagues. The program is sponsored by the Program in Latin American Studies and the Office of the Provost and is endorsed by the Princeton Task Force on Puerto Rico.
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker announced his opposition to the nomination of Kavanaugh in a July 9 statement. Booker was concerned about Kavanaugh’s views regarding Roe v. Wade, the Affordable Care Act, and the rights of workers to organize for better wages and working conditions. Because of this, Booker urged young people to oppose the nomination of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. University professors explained how the Supreme Court has been increasingly politicized since the Reagan administration.
The University’s campus is changing — and growing. By 2026, up to two new residential colleges will accommodate 500 new undergraduate students, including transfer students who will be admitted as part of the University's reinstated transfer program.
These new residential buildings are just one part of a larger plan to expand the University. According to Executive Vice President Treby Williams ’84, the expansion will be the “most ambitious and comprehensive” in the University’s history. When the expansion is done, Lake Carnegie will be the geographical center of campus, and there will be graduate housing, retail shops, and possibly even a hotel in the southern part of campus.
In September of 2017, as students left their homes all over the world to come to campus, the Trump administration announced it would begin to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which provides protections for individuals who were brought to the United States illegally as children. Since then, the University has engaged in a yearlong legal battle to protect DACA beneficiaries after the policy’s announced rescission.
Donald Trump’s conduct is abhorrent, but by electing him as the leader of our country, we proved our complicity in — and our approval of — such abhorrence. Worse, by continuing to support the president in substantial numbers, we have allowed him to disgrace American life even more.
ICE does a lot of excellent work that goes unnoticed. It shouldn’t be dismantled for political purposes.
On July 5, the University dropped the need for applicants to submit an essay score from the SAT or ACT. Beginning this 2018-2019 application season, applicants will, instead, have to submit a graded high school writing sample, preferably a work either of English or history.

According to Jemison and Bolten, the diversity of the newest cohort of trustees means they're well-equipped to guide and support the University's goals.
Students are expressing outrage over a posting on Handshake, a job recruitment platform, for a position as a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer. The posting is not new, but many students are now deeming it unacceptable, especially in light of new information about the federal government’s family separation policy.
