Sit back, relax, and enjoy some tropical tunes by Steel Drums, Cloister Inn’s spring Lawnparties act.

In addition to singing, Carsley specializes in playing double second steel pans.

Their program starts at 12:30 p.m. with Sensemaya Afrobeat All-Stars, founded by Princeton students in 2002. The group describes itself as “the funkiest, grooviest afrobeat collective this side of Washington Road” and is known for “its infectious tunes and raucous live shows.”

Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding.
Every year, Service in Style, a student organization founded 15 years ago by Lauren Bush ’06, brings together students, corporations, and retailers every spring to raise awareness of autism on campus through a professional, large-scale fashion show. Each April during Autism Awareness Month, this show, otherwise known as Fashion Speaks, is produced and modeled entirely by University students. As the largest student-run charity event on campus, Service in Style donates 100% of its proceeds to the Eden Autism in Princeton, N.J. The Daily Princetonian interviewed this year’s Fashion Speaks co-chairs Olivia Allen ‘18 and Laura Herman ’18, as well as student model Alexander Kirschenbauer ’20 to find out more about the production.
Masses of eager admitted students roamed the aisles of the April 21 Activities Fair, searching for clubs to join when they arrive on campus in the fall. A total of 181 clubs and organizations vied for their attention, varying from the 252-year-old American Whig-Cliosophic Society, which provides students with a place to discuss politics, to the brand-new Arch and Arrow Club which was founded earlier this year to provide students with a group where they can workshop writing together.
The sky was blue, the lawn was green, and the flowers by Washington Road had bloomed into a beautiful soft pink. Last Sunday was a day of sunshine and colors, and this was especially true at Campus Club, where Princeton Disability Awareness, a student organization dedicated to disability awareness, education, and inclusion, hosted its spring carnival.
On a somewhat overcast day last Wednesday, the Princeton University Farmers’ Market opened for the first of four times this year. With a variety of organic food vendors, the market operates on the last four Wednesdays of the school year. The list of vendors this year includes Arlee’s Raw Blends, Cherry Grove Farm, Nutty Novelties, Tassot Apiaries Inc., Terhune Orchards, Orchard Farm Organics, Whole Earth Center, and Wild Flour Bakery/Café, so there is something at the market for everyone.
Princeton is a place that shapes one’s identity, interests, and career. For 23-year-old Aryeh Nussbaum Cohen, it was the start of a lifelong love for opera singing. As a 2016 winner of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and recipient of a Sara Tucker Study Grant from the Richard Tucker Music Foundation, as well as various other awards, Cohen ’15 has been an enormous success in the first few years of his opera singing career. I caught up with Cohen to discuss his recent accomplishments, his time at the University, and his plans for the future.
Trying to ask a stranger about their life story is like walking across the golf course on a sunny day: you have no right to be there, but it’s nice outside, so why not? Sometimes I get strange looks, other times old men yell at me — but then I just apologize and enjoy the walk because I’ve already gone so far, and there’s no point in turning back now. The act of trespassing is intimidating, yet imbued with a sense of childlike naivety. When I walk onto the front porch of someone else’s life and ask them a deeply personal question, I cross some boundaries, but also spark an interaction that may not have occurred otherwise.
I’m ready to be your acquaintance.
While trying to scrub off a dried ketchup stain from the tub in the dish room on a Friday night, I started to reflect on my life choices so far and wonder why I was in a dish room, on a Friday night, scrubbing off dried ketchup from a tub. Before coming to Princeton, I had always prided myself on only working jobs that were meaningful to me. When I applied, I certainly had not envisioned myself breaking that pattern by working in the dining hall.
As an admitted student, you may know that many a meme in Princeton Memes for Preppy AF Teens, the student-generated Facebook group dedicated to sharing mood-lifting JPEGs, are devoted to bursting the bubble of “prefroshian” optimism (the mind of a child is truly wonderful). By being real about everything from precept participation and eating club stereotypes to grading on curves and who is really the best Ivy, we Preppy AF Teens find solace in the public acknowledgment of our many woes. Aside from keeping tabs on the University experience through our beloved Facebook group — where you’ll soon discover our love for Ted Cruz-related slant rhyme — I’m here to share some other “memes” of wisdom for incoming students, relying largely on its alternate definition (yes, I looked it up) for my continued usage of the word.
Every year, the Lewis Center for the Arts’ Princeton Arts Fellowships at are awarded to two or three promising early-career artists in any field. Among a pool of over 740 applicants, writer Erika Sánchez, lighting and projection designer David Bengali ’04, and poet and performance artist Jaamil Olawale Kosoko were recently named as the 2017–19 Princeton University Arts Fellows.
“There is no single definition of healthy masculinity,” said Duane de Four, media critic, educator, and activist.
The Princeton Atelier program offers students the opportunity to participate in a one-time-only course in which they work with professional artists and cultivate a unique experience.

This Friday, I arrived at the American Repertory Ballet and Princeton Ballet School studio at the Princeton Shopping Center about 15 minutes prior to its run-through of “Pride and Prejudice,” Douglas Martin’s full-length ballet based on the classic novel. I was politely asked to move my chair five times before the run-through began, as the stage managers, directors, crew members, and dancers raced around me to make sure everything was ready and in its proper place.
Since the dawn of civilization, humans have come together to fight for eternal glory. In days long past, it has been decided at gladiator fights, duels, and dinner with the in-laws. Last week, University students added their annual contribution to the list: the Princeton Dodgeball Tournament. The premise? Team vs. team, single-elimination dodgeball. The battlefield? Dillon Gymnasium. The stakes? One thousand dollars in cold hard cash (or possibly a check).
