On the University’s admission website, the first academic topic to explore is: “What does liberal arts mean?” In this section, the University argues that by exploring issues, ideas, and methods across the humanities, the arts, the natural sciences, and the social sciences, students will learn to read critically, write analytically, and think broadly. The University hopes its general education requirements will ensure that students take courses across many academic disciplines. I argue that these requirements are a one-size-fits-all answer to the question of how to create well-rounded learners.
This past weekend, both the men’s and women’s golf teams hosted events in New Jersey. The men’s team hosted several teams in its annual Princeton Invitational at Springdale Golf Club. While not winning the team or individual titles, Princeton still performed well, including a third-place finish by sophomore Jake Mayer at -8. Along with Columbia, the women’s team co-hosted a new tournament, called Match Madness, at Fox Hollow in Branchburg, N.J. The women’s team was narrowly defeated in the final round by the University of Delaware in a contest where four of the individual matches came down to the final hole.
The University Art Museum is currently featuring its first bilingual exhibit, “Miracles on the Border: Retablos of Mexican Migrants to the United States | Milagros en la frontera: Retablos de migrantes mexicanos a los Estados Unidos.” All titles, captions, descriptions, and online content related to the exhibit are offered in English and Spanish, thanks to the translation work of a University graduate student in the Department of Spanish & Portuguese.
Following her graduation at the University, Karen Richardson ’93 has dedicated her entire career as an administrator to promoting equity and diversity within higher education. Now, she will have the opportunity to continue that mission as the University’s chief admission officer.
I am a liberal. Although what it means to be a liberal is not clearly defined and sometimes comes with a negative connotation, I can reasonably say I am not conservative. My preferred news sources are The New York Times and NPR. If I’m feeling a little neutral, maybe I’ll visit Real Clear Politics, but that’s about it. Memes about Ben Shapiro frequently pop up on my Facebook feed, and — quite frankly — I enjoy them.
If there’s something that Princeton seems to be overridden with (not including ice cream shops), it’s ramen. In the past few years, ramen shops have been sprouting up like weeds (not in a bad way — more like pretty weeds with flowers on them), making it hard to decide where to go. Group options and budget prices are always a plus while at school, so here are three options that will meet those needs and beyond!
A joint investigation by Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office, the Princeton Police Department (PPD) and University Public Safety into several arson fires on and nearby campus resulted in the arrest of two local juvenile suspects at 12:40 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9.
Almost two years ago, on June 14, 2017, former Arizona Senator Jeff Flake was standing between home plate and first base on a baseball field in Alexandria, Va., when a volley of shots rang out. Seconds later, Representative Steve Scalise (R-La.) was hit in the hip. As Flake rushed to plug his colleague’s bullet wound with his baseball glove, he couldn’t help but wonder: “Why us? How could someone look out at a bunch of middle aged men playing baseball and see the enemy?”
This is the time of year when many high school seniors have to make a decision about where to go to college. As many of us know, this can be quite a difficult decision to make, particularly if a student is faced with many attractive offers. The sentiment is best expressed by a student in that position right now: post #7534 on the Tiger Confessions page is a perfect expression of the justifiable anxiety caused by this decision. Our anonymous senior writes, “Current HS senior deciding between Princeton and a few other Ivies. Leaning toward Princeton because of...the name? Because it seems like a better school? But do I think it’s a better school because of the name?…Is there really an elitist air?…” The problem is that Princeton’s social environment is often seen as exclusionary and elitist. If we truly want to attract the best and the brightest, we have a responsibility to fix this problem.
Maria Ressa ’86, the chief executive officer for Rappler, has been named Time’s Person of the Year for 2018 for her work in defending press freedom in the Philippines under the Duterte regime. In the past 14 months, she has had to post bail 11 times for charges that include tax evasion and cyber-libel. Recently, she was arrested when deboarding a plane at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila.
The baseball team picked up its third Ivy League win of the season against Columbia over the weekend, but with the victory came two stinging losses.
Coming off a solid win against Penn (16–8, 0–3 Ivy League) a week ago, the Princeton men’s tennis team (15–7, 2–1 Ivy) came back for more in a two-game home stand over the weekend. Their Ivy League opponents, Dartmouth (12–6, 1–1 Ivy) and Harvard (15–5, 2–0 Ivy), were both ranked ahead of the Tigers coming in to weekend play, but that didn’t seem to discourage them — Princeton was able to beat Dartmouth 6–1 on Saturday and then fell to Harvard in a tight 4–3 loss on Sunday.
In recent months, federal charges brought against the Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei have prompted the nation’s research institutions, including the University, to cut funding ties with the company.
Class elections have descended upon us again, and — if they resemble those of the past — they’ll be uneventful. Candidates will post advertisements on Facebook. Their campaigns will be based upon the vague uncontroversial platitudes of class unity and free branded clothing. We’ll rejoice if even one of them campaigns in-person.
At approximately 4 p.m. on Monday, April 8, the Department of Public Safety alerted the University community to potential cases of arson on campus. Four cases of arson have occurred in the past four days.
Due to controversy over attitudes surrounding Israel, the night of Friday, April 5 presented the campus Jewish community with a choice between two Shabbats: Israel Shabbat, put on by Israel advocacy group Tigers for Israel (TFI), and #NotOurShabbat, a retaliatory event run by the Alliance of Jewish Progressives (AJP).
The Undergraduate Student Government talked club approvals and USG office hours during its weekly meeting on Sunday, Apr. 7.
