“Can I say Mandarin to describe the language that you are speaking?” “What do you mean your Chinese name isn’t Flora?” These sorts of questions were met with hilarity from Chinese people who had never been so brashly questioned by a foreigner. But the answers were kindly given, even if they were also condescending. I accepted it and took the time to understand that the answers were usually this one person’s opinion or explanation, not representative of the entire Chinese populace.
The date was September 6. The news said that the force of Hurricane Irma would hit later that day. We were as prepared as we could be and braced for the storm. The wind gradually grew stronger as the day got longer and the night drew nearer. My Mom, Dad, and I stepped outside on our patio many times to see increasingly worsening conditions. Our last outside visit before Irma invaded was seeing one of our fondest trees enduring such high wind force bashing that it cracked in half, like an inflatable stick man used in car advertisements.
We face the demoralising suggestion that our classes are less rigorous, our schedules less demanding, our aspirations less ambitious.
President Eisgruber recently penned a letter to the chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary, urging the Committee to “refrain from interrogating nominees about the religious or spiritual foundations of their jurisprudential views.” The issue arose at the confirmation hearing of Amy Barrett, a Catholic law professor and nominee for a judicial appointment.
The United States is currently experiencing an opiate epidemic, with the number of overdoses increasing every year. In 2015, 33,000 people in the United States died of overdoses. The total number of people who overdosed is much higher.
More than anything, it was my interactions with the watermelon sellers that taught me about myself.
The Harvard University administration set off a firestorm when they rejected a formerly incarcerated woman who had already been accepted by the Department of History.
I can remember first arriving on campus as a first-year and soaking up the freedom of college life.
I’ve been thinking about Arthur Brook’s overly simplistic article in the New York Times.
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos ignited a polarizing debate with her Sept. 7 speech explaining plans to repeal the Obama-era Title IX campus sexual misconduct guidelines.
After Harvard University’s recent decision to rescind its fellowship offer to Chelsea Manning, following backlash from CIA Director Mike Pompeo, as well as others, it has become evident that once more the fight for academic freedom and university autonomy is more important than ever.
Just before Princeton students returned to campus this year, an open letter signed by 16 Ivy League professors appeared online, calling on inbound college first-years to “think for yourself.” Though the call to think critically and maintain an open mind is benign on its surface, the letter is in reality a thinly veiled call to resistance against progressive campus activism.
Han Yeol became a hero because he felt that he had a duty to his fellow countrymen and nation. His fortitude, however, is hard to come by. Even now in Princeton, where the threats of police brutality and unjust arrests are low, many students hesitate to criticize what they believe the government is doing wrong.
While we may safely agree that Feinstein overstepped constitutional boundaries, we can also acknowledge that the root of her concerns about the separation of church and state has yet to fully be fully addressed within our current legal system.
The only way to provide equal opportunity for low-income Americans is to adopt an identity-blind meritocracy where society fights the causes of poverty. Feel-good policies like affirmative action don’t work.
I hope the conservative students at Princeton join us for the many events planned for Latinx Heritage Month.
Trump may end DACA as early as Sept. 1. We urge Trump not to end DACA without a suitable, compassionate, and permanent replacement and the University to bring DACA students back to campus before the Sept. 5 deadline imposed by the group of attorneys general who have threatened to sue the Trump administration. Let’s live up to our motto — “Princeton in the nation’s service and the service of humanity.”
We encourage all students, faculty, and other community members to think for themselves, seek the truth, and approach every issue, regardless of emotional charge, with an open mind, respectful attitude, and confidence that they can speak freely without false charges of bigotry based on inaccurate moral equivalences.
On Tuesday, Aug. 29, the Princeton Campus was placed on lockdown for ten minutes while officials investigated reports of an armed person.
