"I don't remember much about the time we crossed the border," says Johana Leanos '21, "but my sister tells me there were about six people in each trunk."
On October 3, columnist Beni Snow's article titled "Crime at Princeton" made the bizarre claim that "our legal safety is lacking" from underage drinking laws. His article continues to explain how the laws aren't productive. At the end, he calls on President Eisgruber to advocate for lowering the minimum drinking age to 18 by saying that, "The current system is not stable."
On Sept. 12, 2017, U.S. News and World Report released its annual Best College ranking lists for 2018. For the seventh straight year, Princeton has topped these rankings. But what — if anything — should we as an institution be proud of?
At a rally in Huntsville, Ala., last month, President Trump urged NFL team owners to fire players who choose to kneel during the national anthem. The next day, more than 200 players protested during the anthem by joining arms or kneeling.
To Christopher Eisgruber, President of Princeton University:
Another Bicker season has come and gone, leaving some students overjoyed and some crushed. For some of those students, bickering was a way to increase their social status, to be part of a club that everyone wants to get into. During the year, the thought of Bicker nags constantly in the recesses of their minds. Students actively try to hang out with members of clubs, even at the expense of their old friend groups. Every social interaction with a member of a selective club is just that much more important, more consequential. But I’m willing to wager that most students who bickered, like me, were just looking to be able to eat with their friends.
On Sunday, Oct. 1, Curb Your Enthusiasm — Larry David's groundbreaking and widely acclaimed comedic television project — returned to HBO after six years off the air. In 2011, after eight Curb seasons, many fans considered the show to be finished and never to return to television again. But Sunday saw the modern comedic staple return. Only time and multiple viewings of the show will determine whether or not this season of Curb Your Enthusiasm will live up to the high expectations of its well-established past, but the buzz around Larry David's comedic masterpiece's return to television demonstrates fans' intense and undying love for the comeback.
As a Princeton student, in between dinner dates and study sessions, you sometimes find yourself completely alone. Maybe you have a phone in your hands, maybe a good book, or even a piece of homework to distract yourself with. Other times, you’re alone with your thoughts, but you look to your left and right: you see couples lovingly gazing at each other, best friends sharing secrets, and acquaintances sharing opinions on the problem set. You see so many people having fun with each other. And as you look at the invisible people next to you, you wonder: are you the only one who is totally alone?
Last weekend, President Trump unleashed a flood of tweets criticizing the protests of NFL players kneeling during the national anthem, even suggesting that kneeling players should be fired. The tweets reignited the debate that has boiled since Colin Kaepernick first knelt during the pregame national anthem last season.
Last month we rehearsed a familiar ritual — we won, again. None of us were surprised to see Princeton top the U.S. News & World Report college rankings for the seventh straight year, whether the headline prompted a gleeful Facebook post or merely a disinterested shrug. We already knew this was the Best Damn Place of All.
Princeton just survived a massive crime wave. Hundreds, if not thousands, of criminal offenses occurred during Lawnparties, as they do every single weekend here. In New Jersey, as in every U.S. state, it is a criminal offense to provide alcohol to minors. Those laws are so overlooked that it’s easy to forget that hosting a pregame is often criminal.
What is a meme? According to Dictionary.com, a meme is “a humorous image, video, piece of text, etc., that is copied (often with slight variations) and spread rapidly by Internet users.” Yet to many of us who have laughed at one or shaken our heads in silent empathy with another, a meme is so much more. It is a source of gentle humor after a long day at the lab or in the library and a way to encompass our never-ending list of complaints about being Princeton students in one image and a few lines of text.
One month ago, sixteen Ivy League professors released a letter that urged incoming freshmen to "think for yourself." In the following weeks, the letter garnered national attention from news outlets ranging from The Atlantic to Fox News.
Racism is more than skin deep.
