This past year,the most prevalent statistic for college campuses across the country was the suicide rate — a number that has been re-calculated time and time again.In the past week alone, the LA Times, the Boston Globe and campus newspapers across thecountry have reported increasing rates of student suicides and the accompanying demand for more psychological services.
If “Jackie” wasn’t actually raped initially, she certainly has been victimized now — this time by Rolling Stone, her three friends, the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity and the University of Virginia and its administrators.
Calling more attention to rape on college campuses and beyond is extremely important; however, it should not be built on the basis of lies.
The results of the “Hose Bicker” referendum are in, with the hosers (no offense to our neighbors in the north) losing 1120 to 868. Adding these numbers, we can see that only 1988 students out of 5391 undergraduates voted.
The Urban Congo group is offensive, distasteful and morally reprehensible. Kudos goes to Achille Tenkiang ’17, who was able to preserve the video of its performance on YouTube before the group hastily removed it.
Two weeks ago, upperclassmen participated in the draw for housing in Spelman. Spelman apartments —which each have four singles, a common room, a bathroom and a kitchen —are one of the most popular housing options for upperclassmen who have decided to go Independent, as it gives them much-needed access to a place to privately prepare food.For independent students, access to a kitchen is of utmost importance as it is often their primary source of food.

Maybe your parents warned you that an art history degree means a job pumping gas at your local Shell station.
When I received an email from the Undergraduate Student Government containing details on how to vote on the widely talked about Bicker referendum, I rolled my eyes and deleted it in a snap.
I disagreed with the referendum for a number of reasons.
Last week in Las Vegas, I was confronted with a difficult reality —that your path in life may depend solely on where you live, how much your family makes, the outcome of a lottery, and even which teachers are willing to commit to your district.
If you haven’t seen “Waiting for Superman,”Guggenheim’s documentary would be a good start to understanding the problems facing the American public education system.
A few days ago, Girls creator and lightning rod for both endless praise and endless controversy Lena Dunham wrote what I assume was intended to be a “humor” piece in the New Yorker entitled “Dog or Jewish Boyfriend?
There was a time when it seemed that every time you’d open The Daily Princetonian there would be an opinion piece about “hookup culture.” Gallons of ink were spilled over the issue, with anonymous contributors sharing sexual anecdotes while columnists agonized over the culture’s effect on gender roles and romantic orientation, with a fair amount of moralizing thrown in for good measure.
I’ve found myself frantically looking up slang terms in Urban Dictionary mid-conversation — discreetly on my phone — more frequently than I’ve had to look up a word in the Oxford English Dictionary.
Though, it makes sense to refer to Urban Dictionary, which was started back in 1999 by none other than a college freshman.
TED talks have long been fodder for conversation. Ranging in subject from issues of the environment to innovations in scientific research to social commentary, these speeches often offer a snapshot of the United States’ current state of being.
Last week, out of the hundreds of surveys for senior theses and university-sponsored initiatives that flooded my inbox (already filled with 1,915 unread messages and counting), I chose to complete the Pace Center Survey.

On the surface level, this remark alone sounds rather extraordinary, especially this week, as high school students around the world learn if they’ve been accepted to Princeton.
Striding the same halls that world leaders (and Ted Cruz '92) walked years ago, we too have obtained the chance to do remarkable things — and that is an incredible privilege.
In the recent Israeli elections, hope for productive negotiations with Palestinians was dealt a serious blow.
It’s a weekly event: a world leader is coming to Princeton’s campus! Insert illustrious title, sponsoring department, a moderator with a doctorate and a time and place to be there.
This January, Duke University had planned to begin broadcasting the Adhan, a traditional Muslim call to prayer, from the top of their chapel on Fridays in an effort to help create a more welcoming environment for Muslim students and foster community unity.
My gals and I went down to Florida two weeks ago to escape cloudy New Jersey. These were all friends that I had made on Community Action, the pre-orientation program that, along with Outdoor Action, is designed to help freshmen transition more easily into their first year.
