Katharine (Kate) Reed ’19 was recently named the valedictorian of the University’s Class of 2019. Hailing from Arnold, Md., Reed is concentrating in history with certificates in Latin American Studies and Spanish. Outside of class, she acts on her passions for language learning and immigrant rights by helping to run El Centro (a program offering ESL classes to immigrant communities in Princeton and Trenton), teaching ESL-adapted history classes at Princeton High School. After graduation, Reed will pursue an MPhil in Development Studies at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar and will continue thinking about the relationship between social, economic, civil, and political rights in Latin America.
In cold and rainy weather, Princeton women’s lacrosse (16–3, 6–1 Ivy) defeated Loyola Maryland (16–5, 9–0 Patriot) 17–13 in the second round of the NCAA tournament. This game was the second time that the Tigers faced the Greyhounds after previously winning 14–10.

In the months following the attacks on New Zealand mosques on March 15, and the days since charges were brought against the alleged shooter in a Poway, California synagogue, there has been a rigorous debate as to how society should treat the ideas that inspired the hatred fueling these alleged attackers.
Over the past week, several undergraduates have sent emails to residential college listservs calling for suggestions for what they call the “redesign” of McCosh Health Center. While not specifying in any further detail the extent of this apparent “redesign,” or describing in any detail how such feedback will be incorporated, they state that University Health Services (UHS) “is undergoing a major remodeling” and “they want student input.” As is typical for such mass emails requesting student feedback, they reassure students that the survey, whose link they provide, is “super short.”
After over 100 hours of protest in front of Nassau Hall, Princeton Students for Title IX Reform (PIXR) updated their list of demands.

Princeton’s women’s lacrosse’s NCAA tournament run is off to a strong start.
The University’s Title IX office is set to undergo an external review, according to a University statement released on Friday afternoon. Provost Deborah Prentice will oversee the review.
Recently, in the wake of three institutional embarrassments, the campus community has been unusually and excitingly responsive. Attempts to cover up and minimize scandals have blown up, from the non-randomness of room draw, the structural inequality in the form of introducing the criminal history checkbox on the graduate school application, to the ineffectiveness of the Title IX office. Activists have held their ground in calling for the reform of a dysfunctional Title IX system. Unfortunately, the administration has been utterly condescending to some of its most courageous community members.
A solid showing at the Ivy League Heptagonal championships last weekend earned women’s track and field a fourth-place finish, one step up from its indoor fifth-place performance.
Seven individual first-place finishes, 13 All-Ivy League honorees, and a host of other medal performances secured defending champion men’s track and field the 2019 Ivy League Heptagonal Championship. The win, by a whopping 59 points, represented the program’s ninth triple crown and head coach Fred Samara’s 46th Ivy League title.
The Princeton Council held a meeting in the Whig Senate Chamber at 7 pm on May 8, the first town council meeting ever held on the University campus. Students and Council members discussed a number of issues facing the University and the town, as well as possibilities for collaboration between the two entities. All Princeton Council members were present, including Princeton Mayor Liz Lempert.
Perusing the galleries of an art museum, we often view artworks as portals into history. Less often do we contemplate the history of the physical piece in front of us. What we see is often enhanced by the quiet yet immensely difficult work of art conservators. On May 2, Princeton University Art Museum’s conservator, Bart J.C. Devolder, delivered this year’s Friends Annual Mary Pitcairn Keating Lecture: “A New Day for Art Conservation at the Art Museum.” During his talk, Devolder outlined the past, present, and future of conservation at the museum, shedding light on his own role in this trajectory.
In complete silence, students assembled around Nassau Hall, arm-in-arm, until they had entirely encircled in the building. On their mouths were black pieces of tape that read “Listen.”
We write amid the ongoing sit-in outside Nassau Hall, initiated by courageous and committed undergraduate students. As graduate student organizers at Princeton, their cause is one that we support unequivocally. Princeton Graduate Students United (PGSU) stands in solidarity with those taking action against the University’s negligence on matters of sexual abuse, lack of transparency in general, and surrounding Title IX proceedings specifically.
Every student on campus, whether it be in first-year writing seminar or during the senior thesis grind, has had experience with entering the “scholarly conversation.” Entire databases on the Princeton University Library website — not to mention the millions of physical books in the libraries themselves — are devoted to countless scholarly works. Most of these journal articles, books, and encyclopedias are the result of extended research and careful analysis from experts who have studied these various subjects for decades. Much of the existing scholarly work — as well as the millions of works both Princeton students and professors will continue to contribute — however, is unread, unused, and essentially useless. This is a bleak sentence for the prospects of academia and the wealth of information and possibility it holds.
The University has responded to the demands of the Title IX office protesters engaging in a sit-in outside of Nassau Hall, saying that it will refer concerns to the appropriate University committees, but it will not consider the protesters’ “unfounded calls for the termination of University employees.”
The latest monthly meeting of the Council of the Princeton University Community (CPUC), which took place on Monday, had an agenda packed with a wide variety of presentations and became the site of a large-scale student protest.

Coming off a dominating run, winning 13 of their last 14 matches, and going undefeated in the Ivy League for the second consecutive year, the women’s tennis team came in with a full head of steam going into their 10th NCAA Tournament in school history. As the sole Ivy League representative, the 34th-ranked Tigers flew across the country to Seattle last weekend, defeating No. 27 Northwestern 4–1 and then falling to No. 10 University of Washington on their home court. The team’s 19 wins for the season ties for the second best in school history, and its victory over Northwestern marks their first tournament win since 2014.
