As the Academy Award for Best Picture was announced on Sunday night, Spike Lee sprang up from his seat, stormed to the doors at the back of the Dolby Theatre, and attempted to leave in frustration and anger. “Green Book” had won Best Picture. Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman” was also nominated for the night’s highest award, and the director may have been angry over the fact that his film lost to Peter Farrelly’s “Green Book.” But Lee’s film had already taken home an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, so his frustration over “Green Book” receiving the night’s top award might have run deeper than petty competition.
Jussie Smollett, a star actor on Fox’s show “Empire,” claimed that he was the victim of a hate crime. He alleged that his attackers tied a noose around his neck and called him racial and homophobic slurs.
With its unexpected turn into more serious subject matter, the Tiger Confessions Facebook page transformed from a place of light-hearted compliment sharing into a valuable platform for grievances of all kinds. Unsurprisingly, however, we are all still looking for ourselves within its postings—which is why a series of comments about the exclusivity of dance companies recently caught my eye.

I’ve never been lucky with course registration. Most of my experiences have been stressful and chaotic, like when I initially got into zero of four desired classes in my sophomore fall, or when the neuroscience department only offered one class, at one specific time, in one specific semester, to fulfill a requirement.
How does personal digital technology affect how we interact within our campus environment? Such a question, it goes without saying, is of great relevance to our lives as undergraduates. The argument that such technologies — smart phones, earbuds, smart watches, etc. — undermine personal interaction in the real world is not a new one. Here, however, I seek to more concretely articulate, through an architectural lens, the threats that such digital technologies pose to the uniquely spontaneous interactions that arise in our physical campus environment.
At the end of FaceTime conversations with my parents, they casually but ever so intently ask, “Have you been getting a lot of sleep?” Just as casually, I respond, “I’m averaging six or seven hours” — minus the really late nights when sleep was nonexistent.
A recent study from the American College Health Association found that 41.9 percent of undergraduates have “felt so depressed within the past twelve months that it was difficult to function.” The Princeton Mental Health Initiative has dedicated a week to raise awareness of their plight.
To its players’ minds, the men’s ice hockey (8–16–3 overall, 6–12–2 ECAC) season so far has been a disappointing one. Second to last in the ECAC standings, the team had suffered a series of humiliating losses — not least of all its Feb. 1, 3–2 loss to last-place St. Lawrence (4–26–2, 2–16–2).
It was a weekend of ups and downs in DeNunzio Pool for the women’s swimming and diving team, as they finished third overall in an Ivy League championship meet that head coach Bret Lundgaard knew would be difficult to win from the onset.
It was not until December of 2018 that the Senate voted to make lynching a federal crime. Between 1882 and 1986, Congress attempted 200 times on this legislation to no avail. Why did it take so long? The filibuster.
This past weekend, the No. 7 ranked women’s hockey team (18–6–5, 15–4–3 ECAC) ended the 2018–19 regular season on a tough note, losing both games against No. 5 Clarkson (25–7–2, 16–5–1) and Saint Lawrence (14–13–7, 9–7–6).
