Since the dawn of civilization, humans have come together to fight for eternal glory. In days long past, it has been decided at gladiator fights, duels, and dinner with the in-laws. Last week, University students added their annual contribution to the list: the Princeton Dodgeball Tournament. The premise? Team vs. team, single-elimination dodgeball. The battlefield? Dillon Gymnasium. The stakes? One thousand dollars in cold hard cash (or possibly a check).
Alexander Quetell ’17 is an art and archaeology concentrator from Rochester, Mich.

It was a fatal moment. It was a beautiful moment. It was one of those moments when you could foresee the destruction of something fragile, but you held your breath nonetheless.
Have you considered taking more classes to deal with the stress from your current classes? Of course, I'm not speaking about academic classes; Campus Recreation actually offers many fantastic group fitness classes to help you stay fit, healthy, and, ideally, stress-free.

A popular study break go-to, Jammin’ Crepes is well-known to many Princeton students. What the swarms of students attending these study breaks often fail to appreciate, however, is the restaurant’s incredible atmosphere. With wooden tables, hand-written chalk signs, and an array of mason jars to hold silverware, the rustic décor of the place is truly distinct. An array of different seating options, from bar-style tables to intimate two-person tables by the window, lend a sense of versatility. On a nice day, with lots of small colorful tables set up outside, the combination of Jammin’ Crepes’ beautiful surroundings and delicious food makes for an optimal dining experience. If you visit, be prepared to be welcomed graciously into this abode by friendly servers who are eager to optimize your experience.
“It’s the most authentic Chinese food I’ve ever had,” said a student customer at Noodle House. Opened in June 2016 by a family who immigrated to the United States from Fujian, China, 25 years ago, Noodle House offers not only high-quality Chinese food, but also signature dishes from Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam, and other Asian countries. Among the restaurant’s most popular dishes are Japanese-style ramen and rice bowls as well as Vietnamese pho.
You always remember your first. Forbes Sunday brunch, that is. I had heard all the stories, from the infamous chocolate fountain and its ability to inspire love and spark excitement in even the most jaded of upperclassmen, to the long lines (for omelets) that were second only to those of the DMV.
“Who in their right mind would find octopus appetizing?” said my 10-year-old self when I was brought to a restaurant and promptly presented with a plate of pulpos a la gallega, a Spanish dish consisting of octopus and potatoes seasoned with coarse sea salt, paprika, and olive oil. This dish was now sitting in front of me once again.
“What were you most excited about when you got to Hong Kong?” Most people who hear about my spring break are curious about my answer to this question. In the midst of midterms week, the second question that everyone asked each other after the obligatory “How are you and how are your midterms going?” was “What are you doing for spring break?” Rather than discussing problem sets, exams, or papers, thinking about the prospect of vacation was a wonderful respite.
Seventeen student leaders from around the world arrived on Princeton’s campus last April to spend three days engaging in important dialogue with colleagues who might one day shape U.S.-China policy. Attendees of Princeton U.S. China Coalition’s first conference included a law student from India who was traveling outside of the country for the first time, a Ph.D. student born in China and is studying at Oxford, and more than a dozen other students passionate about Sino-American policy issues.
In the challenging bubble of extremely colorful Google calendars and late night dining hall studying, various campus resources help students recognize the importance of relaxation and mindfulness.
1. Spring break isn’t a break if it is only one week: How many times did friends from home ask what you were doing for both weeks of spring break? Any offer to visit during one of their weeks that doesn’t overlap with yours? October break has Thanksgiving on the horizon. Intersession makes its happy appearance after an unscheduled month of reading period and exams, and spring break.... Well, we only have a meager eight weeks before summer begins and real work begins — internships, fellowships, junior paper, and thesis research — an eight weeks that will fly by, right?
This is Eduardo Cadava’s last year as Head of Wilson College before he takes a sabbatical year. Although he will be returning in fall 2018, Street interviewed Cadava and asked him to reflect on his 27 years at the University as he prepares to step down from his position.
This week, Street explored the Princeton Portraits Project, which was overseen by Debbie Bazarsky, manager of Diversity and Inclusion in Human Resources. Adam Mastoon, a socially conscious photographer, was in charge of shooting the portraits, while Andy Chen and Waqas Jawaid, both from Isometric Studios, created the website.
“Murder on the Orient Express” begins with the murder of Daisy Armstrong, a five-year-old girl. The play launches its audience into a murder mystery with an incredibly dark, chilling moment: A silhouetted man breaks into Daisy’s room and then an abrupt blackout that leaves the child’s scream hanging in the air.
Spring: the season of new beginnings. When warmth comes back from hibernation, sunbeams emerge from dark clouds, and birds sing from the twigs of blossoming trees... at least that’s what it used to be like. But we now seem to face the ugly truth: spring is not the promise of a new beginning anymore — no, spring is the promise of apocalypse.
