It was the beginning of freshman year, and my next-door neighbor invited me to Princeton Faith and Action’s Friday Night Encounters. I’m not a Christian — I consider myself a secular humanist — but for the sake of hanging out with my neighbor, I decided to go. We ate some Caribbean food, sang hymns about Jesus Christ, and talked about Christian rap music afterwards. Not going to lie, Andy Mineo is my jam sometimes.
More than three years after interrupting President Barack Obama, transgender Latina activist Jennicet Gutiérrez is once again taking aim at a White House she deems incapable of protecting her community.

It’s no small thing to throw the symbolic weight of Princeton University behind a cause. As such, it’s been deeply encouraging to see President Eisgruber’s recent advocacy on behalf of the trans community and his leadership in the university’s challenge against President Donald Trump’s DACA decision. President Eisgruber’s actions have shown that in some cases, he is willing to put resources and reputation on the line for justice, and that he is an effective advocate when he chooses to do so.
Over fall break, I traveled to Europe with my mom to visit my brother, who is currently studying abroad at King’s College in London for a semester. We also went to Ireland to see Maynooth, the town where my mom studied abroad. After a week of hearing my brother talk about his current life and my mom reminisce about her past, I realized that studying abroad has the ability to challenge one’s American assumptions. Any University student who, like me, has never lived outside of the United States should more strongly consider spending a semester abroad.
Over fall break, I travelled to Israel and the West Bank with fellow classmates and professor as part of a seminar on the history of the region. While on the trip, I was able to do something that, for some reason, had been oddly missing for much of my life and education: I interacted with Palestinians. I was able to challenge my own politics and narratives and was forced to see them in a broader context. I began to question why that up to this point my Jewish education and upbringing allowed almost no way for me to engage with Palestinian voices, despite my plethora of opportunities to engage with Israel in an “apolitical” way.
The stage of Frist Theatre bursts into a flood of pink fluorescent light. The audience immediately erupts into a deafening wave of cheers and screams. Onstage, the dancers of eXpressions Dance Company groove to “Vroom Vroom” by Charli XCX before the song switches to Billie Eilish’s “you should see me in a crown” and their undulating movements become sharp and staccato. Their bodies radiate energy and swagger, while their faces beam with confidence, fueled by the cheers of their peers. And as the show’s title “Transparent” suggests, the audience is quickly able to see through the dancing on stage to the passion and dedication of the dancers in eXpressions Dance Company that exist underneath all their movement.
Following a bold move from the White House that threatened to change current definitions of gender, the University has responded with stronger protection and resources for its LGBTQ+ students. The support did not go unnoticed.
Arthur C. Brooks, President of the conservative think tank American Enterprise Institute and a New York Times monthly columnist, sat down with The Daily Princetonian Tuesday afternoon. Below is a lightly edited transcript of the conversation.

The men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams competed in the annual Big Al Invite in DeNunzio Pool over the weekend. The men (2–0, 0–0 Ivy) continued their strong start to the season, besting the field of five teams, while the women (2–0, 0–0) faltered and finished fifth.

The Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding would be my favorite place to study on campus if it were on campus. As a Mathey Moose situated in a corner of campus, I am quite used to the long treks to classes past Washington Road; however, sometimes far is just too far.
What makes it acceptable for Twitter to deplatform widely unpopular members, but wrong for the Department of Justice to jail those with dissident views? As it turns out, nothing makes it acceptable. As Princeton students grapple with questions of free speech, they should consider the effects of social media companies on that speech. Anyone who is committed to a substantive right to free speech against government intervention should support a similar principle in the context of corporations policing speech.
For me, walking into the weight room of Stephen’s Fitness Center is like being an English major in an advanced particle physics class. No matter how many times I walk down those steps, pick up my 10-pound weights, and awkwardly squeeze myself as unobtrusively as possible into a corner, my lack of a Y chromosome makes me feel out of place. It isn’t going to stop me from going down there, but it does make me feel far more self-conscious than I have ever felt anywhere else on campus.
