Fifteen minutes isn’t a lot. But, if every week, three of your friends are fifteen minutes late to dinner dates, one of your professors wanders in fifteen minutes late to class, and your teammate is consistently fifteen minutes late to practice, you’ve lost 165 minutes of your time.
If you’ve heard our president speak, you’ve heard about the dangerous, all-consuming “liberal media.” The “lying media.” The “fake news.” According to Trump and his advisors, the media seems to persecute any idea or person that does not follow its “liberal ideology.”This sort of media framing has become a popular way for editors and writers of alt-right news sources to defend their material.
We live in a reality where sexual assault is caused by a rape culture and also significantly magnified by alcohol. They are not mutually exclusive. By failing to directly address alcohol's role, we are doing a disservice to ourselves and the college community.
My grandfather was born and raised in rural Jamaica in the late 1920s. His mother died as an infant, and his father died when he was 13, leaving him, the oldest male in the family, to take care of his stepmother and his siblings.
I recently attended a leadership conference series at a consulting firm in New York that was designed to help women explore their identities in the professional setting and to learn more about consulting at this particular firm. One of the last parts of the series was a question and answer session with one of the female partners, in which a fellow attendee asked a very thought-provoking question.
The U.S.public feels that the nation’s business and political elites are held to a different standard of the law than the “common man” is. When it comes to underage drinking laws at the country’s top universities, the public is right and has reason to be outraged.There’s a peculiar double standard in how drinking laws are enforced on college campuses. My friends who attend state schools talk about police raids on fraternity parties, large arrests, and regular patrols to confiscate alcohol from underage students.
During football season, I received no shortage of pictures of packed stadiums from my friends at other universities. But at the Princeton-Harvard game this year, Powers Field was two-thirds empty.
I have no interest in censoring Breaking the Silence; it has every right to speak to students about its views. But students must question the validity of what they hear.
Princeton’s exclusivity is old news, and it seems as if it’s embedded in the University culture. For the past two decades, Princeton has not accepted undergraduate transfer students.
As the 2016-2017 academic year comes to an end, the University is already preparing to welcome the next incoming class in the fall. First-years will participate in a host of activities that comprises the University’s orientation program. This program is designed to ease the transition to campus life “by introducing first-year students to the values, expectations, and resources of the inclusive Princeton community.”
The following article clarifies and elaborates on certain points I made in an article I recently wrote for this section and responds to some of the criticism it has received.First of all, I’d like to clarify that nowhere in my article do I make the broad claim that all conservatives are racist, misogynistic, or ignorant.
While I was growing up in the 1950s and 60s, my grandfather Alan Fitz Randolph (B.S., Chemistry, Princeton, 1913), a descendant of Nathaniel Fitz Randolph, who had contributed the original land for Princeton University in 1753, spoke often of his pride in the University.
Any current Princetonian reading this has probably seen the open letter addressed to University President Christopher Eisgruber ’83, appealing for (political, though it never says so directly) diversity in the selection of books assigned as Pre-reads to incoming first-years.
Mass incarceration is one of the great moral challenges of our time. With merely 4.4 percent of the world's population, the United States holds almost one quarter of all the prisoners, far more than any other country.
Sophomores, take note: The options that were offered to you this spring are not nearly as comprehensive as those offered at other Ivy League and top universities. If we hope to live up to our reputation and values as a liberal arts university, this must change.The University’s system of majors is extremely narrow compared to its peers. Princeton offers 37 academic concentrations. Harvard offers 49; Stanford, 65; Yale, 75; Columbia, 80; Brown, 79; Cornell, 80; Dartmouth, 63; and the University of Pennsylvania, 64.
Now more than ever, our government needs to continue attracting young people who understand the importance of facts, data, and science. However, for progressives interested in public service, the changed political landscape will require a broader search for ways to make a difference.
Darryl McDaniels ended one of his responses simply saying, “Art succeeds where politics and religion fail.” All forms of art carry a responsibility. Here at the University, we’re much removed from the South Bronx, but most of us are artists in some way or another. We don’t simply create art for the sake of art, but rather for the sake of something greater.
There is an emerging belief that people holding conservative views are being persecuted in a way akin to how historically oppressed groups have been. Complaints include an inability to voice opinions without being censored, discrimination based on conservative beliefs, and a fear of being labelled as ignorant.
Like most freshmen, I signed up for the unlimited meal plan during my first fall semester. Princeton was an embarrassment of edible riches ranging from the sublime (late meal cookies) to the disturbing (any attempt at Asian food). As my waistline expanded, so did my love for Princeton’s dining halls.But by that spring semester, the novelty had worn off (subsisting only on chicken tenders and burrito bowls will do that to you) and nutritional reality had sunk in. In a last-minute effort to reclaim my body and soul, I decided to switch to the Block 190 plan, the smallest meal plan allowed to underclassmen, and I have been on it since.
Princeton plans to expand the undergraduate student body size and just published initial plans for the changes to campus.
