You’ve spent all morning on the train. Watching as the landscape changes right outside your window, you wonder how much longer it will take to arrive. Finally, the train crosses a narrow bridge and arrives at a small train depot. Eager to stretch your legs and to take in the great summer weather, you walk briskly towards the exit.
After “the current administration’s executive order on immigration and travel,” Alexandria Herr ’17 began to think of “things I could do to help friends that were affected”. She finally decided “a benefit concert seemed like a good idea.”
What would happen if 100 of the most creative, design-driven college students in the country worked together alongside top brand creators, product designers, and entrepreneurs? That’s what Mihika Kapoor ’18 had in mind when she started planning the first-ever Designation Conference. In its first year, the Conference has already gotten top executives from IBM, Fox, Google Ventures, and more to pledge their participation.
Art is participatory. What artists create is an experience for people to look at artwork and imagine themselves to be part of its story. The best works of art are the most convincing in catalyzing their audience’s imagination. Moreover, the process of art-making is also more arduous than we often imagine. This week, the 'Prince' spoke with two student artists on campus who designed their own film projects as an extracurricular passion, in hopes of unveiling the artistic ideals that motivated them and the artistic processes they underwent.
“Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk, I’m a woman’s man: no time to talk.” With these classic words from the Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive,” “Saturday Night Fever,” a musical based on the 1977 film of the same name, introduces Tony Manero to the audience.
Food is more than just basic sustenance; in many countries it is the cornerstones of culture — the occasion to eat is a celebration in itself. This can be seen around the world where pubs, restaurants, Kneipen, and other food establishments can flourish not only based on their cook’s ability, but also on the atmosphere they can foster among their patrons.
It's that time of year again, when seniors withdraw into the depths of libraries and their dorm rooms to complete perhaps the most exhaustive and nuanced endeavor that they will undertake during their Princeton careers: the senior thesis. For months, these students have been conducting research, building, performing, interviewing, and writing these capstone projects that are often mysteries to underclassmen. To get an idea of what these students have been spending hours and hours on, the Street interviewed three seniors, Dylan Blau Edelstein ’17, former Street editor Harrison Blackman ’17, and Daniel Teehan ’17. All of the seniors are AB students; Edelstein is concentrating in Spanish & Portuguese, Blackman in History, and Teehan in Comparative Literature.
Sometimes you’ll see me standing outside, with my head tipped back towards the sky, imploring the clouds to dip down close enough to brush against my face, the same way your words touched my heart. I still tell myself that if I believe hard enough, snowflakes will crystallize on my tongue like candies to remind me of the day we last saw each other.
The Martin A. Dale ’53 Summer Award is a University-sponsored funding opportunity for undergraduates who want to design their own summer project. Twelve sophomores from different residential colleges are given $5000 to create projects that develop “personal growth, foster independence, creativity, and leadership skills, and broaden or deepen some area of special interest.” We interviewed three students who were recipients of the award: Rabia Khan ’18, Marlyn Bruno '17, and Michael Manning '17.
“By virtue of the fact that 2D is the only undergraduate co-op on campus, it has been labeled as insular, even strange. But the house’s reputation is the least of its problems,” reads an article published on Feb. 20, 1983, in The Daily Princetonian.
For the members of the Jewish community, the Center for Jewish Life is much more than a place to eat. Rather, it represents a solid community of people who share similar beliefs and religious experiences.
The University has a long history of creating structures for communities that bring together people based on specific interests, such as dance, a cappella, or visual arts. There are student artists from all different fields who push the limits of creative imagination and create work worthy of being displayed on world-renowned platforms. But what would happen if these different groups crossed paths? What kind of community, conversations, and creations could emerge from such an environment?
I used to believe that love worked in a singular, particular way; that I would meet one person and they would be the first person to ever hold my hand, to be my first kiss, my first date, my first time, and that I would marry that one person. My impractical standards dictated that this person would be perfect and that we would live happily ever after. I went to a single-gender school for most of my life, and had very little interest in romance of any kind. All my knowledge of relationships and romance came from TV shows, books, and movies for the first 18 years of my life.
Becoming a Residential College Advisor at the University is highly competitive. The application has multiple stages, which, depending on the residential college, can include written responses to questions, one-on-one interviews with the Director of Student Life, and group interviews with senior
I have to say, as I traveled down the east coast of Sydney, Australia, this summer, I was disappointed to learn that “P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way” did not exist. However, I was glad to learn that at least the East Australian Current was real, although I voyaged by plane and car to get to Australia, rather than floating along the EAC with 200-year-old sea turtles.
A play within a play. A murder mystery within a romance within a family drama within a coming-of-age story, all within a socio-political satire about Asian-Americans, created by Asian-Americans. “Charles Francis Chan Jr.’s Oriental Murder Mystery” — a mouthful of a title, yet fittingly convoluted just like its subject matter — is the very first play in Princeton’s theater department to feature a cast of entirely Asian-American actors.
Unlike some study spaces on campus, the Rocky Common Room is hardly ever empty. At least during the regular school year, you can almost always find someone working late into the night or coming in early to catch the morning light through the glass windows.
1. A confession: I make lists of what we might fight about (don’t worry, this is not that kind of list). I’m terrified of the inevitable mistakes, hurt, poisonous words. I can (and frequently do) imagine several lifetimes’ worth of failures and heartbreak, and it’s almost enough to make me want to run far, far away.
While love does not seem like the type of thing you learn from a textbook, at a lecture, or in a seminar, it has been studied in everything from history to sociology and psychology. Unsurprisingly, at Princeton, there are many classes that provide unique opportunities to learn more about love — how it has been written about, how it changes social relationships, how it relates to current politics — and so on. While we can’t promise that these classes will make you an expert in love, they may give you some insight on on how to talk about it.
With gallery walls and floor spaces adorned with a vast assortment of fine paintings and statues, it is hard for any patron visiting the University Art Museum to not feel a sense of romanticism in the air. On Feb. 11, this sense was further heightened when the recurring Art for Families series dedicated their event, Art from the HeART, to telling some of the great love stories behind select museum works.
