As Princeton students, we are surrounded by noise. Whether it be unintelligible drunken shouts outside your window late at night or the patter of your roommate typing away, our lives are rarely quiet. Campus is abuzz with the cacophony of life: it is nearly impossible to sit beyond the range of some conversation or cars or distant organ music. As social creatures, we feel awkward sitting with someone and not maintaining a conversation. Silence somehow implies a lack of appreciation for the company of others and is perceived as rude. We are forced into prolonging a never-ending chatter which, for some reason, is apparently preferable to no conversation at all.

Voters in the 2018 midterms gave the country varied results — and Princetonians were in the mix across the board. Texans re-elected Republican Sen.

The force that keeps post-Soviet states trapped in bad governance, known as “Good Soviet Union,” is equivalent to President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again,” according to political science professor Vladimir Gel’man.
When New York Times international correspondent David Kirkpatrick ’92 interviewed Egyptian then-president Mohamed Morsi in September 2011, he tried to begin with some small talk. Kirkpatrick asked Morsi for his thoughts about his time in graduate school at the University of Southern California.

It’s an exciting time to be a Princeton football fan. Last Saturday, Nov. 3, the Tigers took down Dartmouth 14–9 in a thrilling showdown of unbeaten teams.

This is the second year in a row that the team has won the conference and advanced to the tournament.
The highlight of my fall break, my crowning achievement, and perhaps the only tangible thing I have to show for this brief season of my life sits on the cold tile floor of my laundry room, stacked and folded neatly in a weathered plastic basket.
Hate is on the rise in the United States, and the last few weeks have made that undeniable.
Last month, pop artist Ariana Grande and “Saturday Night Live” comedian Pete Davidson ended their engagement and, in turn, their dreamlike, potently loving relationship. Their breakup came on the heels of the death of Grande’s ex-boyfriend, rapper Mac Miller, who died of a drug overdose this past September. Grande and Davidson’s short-lived relationship is an exhibition of our unsustainable desperation for love that heals and saves us from our debilitating pain and longings.
In the weeks prior to the 2018 midterm elections, the focus on political discourse and civic engagement has heightened throughout the nation, particularly on college campuses. However, a small minority of the University’s undergraduate student body — international students — experiences this focus in vastly different ways.
As the flames of political tension are fanned all around us with increasing fervor, our campus is consumed with the seeming imperative of desperate resistance. Unfortunately, we reduce this engagement to the singular, and ostensibly all-important, action of casting a ballot.
