First-term Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), one of the first Muslim-American women to serve in Congress, has been harshly criticized from both sides of the aisle in Congress for her suggestion, via Twitter, that U.S. politicians’ staunch support of Israel is motivated by monetary donations they receive from a Jewish lobbyist group. Democrats and Republicans have accused Omar of blatant anti-Semitism for allegedly exploiting the trope that Jews use money to influence international affairs.

At the beginning of the school year we were told admissions doesn’t make mistakes. I’m certain each student at Princeton deserves to be here for some reason or another. First-years, however, enter college having only known an academic environment that is typically easier to manage than college. Thus, the beginning of the spring semester reminds me of the dreaded “impostor syndrome,“ defined as constantly doubt in your accomplishments and persistent fear that you will be exposed as a fraud. The feeling that you are neither qualified nor do you fully belong is unfortunately common here.
In December 2017, four referenda concerning changes to the University’s Honor System were proposed and voted on by the student body. The subsequent remand of three of these referenda to the Committee on Examinations and Standing in January 2018 sparked a full year of conversation on campus, and numerous University committees met during that time period to evaluate Princeton’s academic integrity system. Throughout the process, representatives from the student body, faculty, and administration came together to improve academic integrity practices across the University, while keeping the intentions of the student referenda and the clear desire for reform they expressed in mind.
Within days of being elected as 2018 Undergraduate Student Government (USG) President, Rachel Yee ’19 combed through The Daily Princetonian archives to compile a list of every USG president since 1953 in an Excel spreadsheet.

Princeton wrestling traveled to Ithaca, New York, last weekend with one goal in mind: to put an end to No. 10 Cornell’s (10–2 overall, 5–0 Ivy) 16-year reign over the Ivy League.

In order to take action against campus sexual assault, Ron Arons ’78 had a “crazy idea.” He flew his own Krav Maga instructor nearly 3000 miles from Berkley to Princeton to hold three workshops teaching students to defend themselves and others against would-be aggressors.

Our elected officials must be held to a higher standard. Past actions of the Virginia Democratic leadership have called into question their ability to lead and dredged up a long history of discrimination, hatred, and racial and sexual violence. The Princeton College Democrats enthusiastically campaigned for then-candidates Ralph Northam and Justin Fairfax, in 2017. We echoed their words on racial equality, social justice, and leadership for all people. Those words now ring of hypocrisy. The Virginia Democratic leadership has failed to meet the high standard of their offices. Governor Northam, Lieutenant Governor Fairfax, and Attorney General Mark Herring must resign after appointing qualified, unifying Democratic leaders to fill the vacated roles and allow Virginia to heal and move forward under new leadership. As College Democrats, we remain committed to supporting leaders who fight for justice and equality for all.
One benefit of Ivy League basketball’s weekend-only game schedule is that it provides ample opportunity for reflecting between games. I do that here, providing five thoughts I had following the men’s basketball team’s losses last weekend at Yale and Brown.
A few months ago, one of my friends became visibly upset. When I asked her why, she said that her parents hadn’t responded to her in four hours, and she was beginning to worry. At first, I wanted to laugh because it seemed like something so minuscule, something I would never think to worry about. But then it made me realize how I barely contact my parents and how they always contact me. The other day, my mom simply sent me a heart emoji, without me prompting her to do so. Sometimes she will just say “what’s up?” at a random time. She wants me to know she is thinking about me.
This past week, many students returned to campus after exciting travels over Intersession. When planning a trip, most people consider budget, location, and the people joining them. One thing, however, is often left off of the list: tourism’s impact on the environment and local communities. Though they may not find it glamorous or exciting to think about, students should attempt to travel sustainably in the various breaks that allow for that opportunity. The effects of not doing so are critically detrimental.
