Jim Olaf ’19 was never a fan of the Bicker process. He found the process overall morally disingenuous, vaguely illiberal, and almost entirely lacking in empathy. But Olaf had a vision: a process that, instead, would be morally reprehensible, completely illiberal, and entirely lacking empathy.
The University is heading into the third week of its shutdown, caused by a debate over campus border security.
A flyer for the Zarnab Virk ’20 Undergraduate Student Government (USG) presidential campaign was found translated into Russian and lying on the floor of the Slavic languages and literatures department, causing campus officials to speculate about possible collusion.
Last Friday, the University held its first ever “He Bellows” conference celebrating male domination in fields like politics, technology, and the military. Notable alumni guests included U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R) ’92, Google’s Eric Schmidt ’76, and former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld ’54.
Alicia Van Cleve and Victoria Rodriguez Mitchell, the ASL interpreters for Alik Zalmover ’22, wonder if people ever think that they are the first-year’s moms or sisters when the three walk around campus together.
On Dec. 5 and 6, 18 graduate students and members of the Princeton Citizen Scientists, a student organization formed in 2016 seeking to promote scientific engagement and affect scientific policy, traveled to Washington, D.C., to advocate for issues relating to climate change, science education, and healthcare.
While most Princeton students headed home for the holidays and took some much-needed time away from campus, Tiger teams remained in action throughout the break. Here is a recap of some of the notable game results and individual standout performances.
The winter is the most dangerous time of the year — not just for chapped lips, bitter finger tips, and icy ground, but for a University student’s pride. Whether it’s applying to internships and spring classes or approaching someone on the Street to initiate cuffing season, rejection looms in the air. Hearing “the applicant pool was more competitive than ever” and “it’s not you, it’s me” hit similar soft spots.
It took me far too long, but I recently acknowledged an experience of sexual assault while at the University. It was a textbook incident: the type that almost every University student hears about in campus-wide trainings or orientation programming. It was “typical” in that way, but I have come to learn that coping with a sexual assault is not nearly as simple as some programming makes it out to be. What they don’t tell you in the trainings is that the processing that has to occur in order to truly heal goes far beyond the moment at which the assault is reported, if it is reported at all.
“I would dissuade people from attending Princeton just because of the Honor Code.”
El Sistema: Advocating for Accessible Systematic Music Education (Jan. 9) 4:30 p.m. at 10 McCosh Hall. Sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, this panel discussion focuses on “El Sistema” — a publically funded music education program in Venezuela. One of the panelists will be Maestro Gustavo Dudamel — Princeton University Concerts’ first artist-in-residence.
One year after the opening of Bezos Residential College, an investigation conducted by The Daily Princetonian found independent residents suffer from diabetes and paper cuts. First-year students in Bezos said their transition to campus was negatively impacted because they never left their dorm rooms.
Yur Jellus, a sophomore from Lawrenceville, N.J., broke the record for the greatest amount of travel funding for a single independent research project at the University. This summer, the Wilson School concentrator will travel to the dark side of the moon, the bottom of the Pacific Ocean’s Mariana Trench, and the geographic center of Antarctica as part of his academic exploration of “diplomacy through solitude.”
In the final stretch of its Ivy League opener at home against Penn (10–5 overall, 0–1 Ivy), Princeton men’s basketball (8–5, 1–0) couldn’t seem to get out of its own way. First, the Tigers stalled offensively and blew a 59–51 lead in the game’s final minutes as Penn forced overtime. In the overtime period, Princeton missed the front end of a one-and-one twice, allowing Penn to grab a crucial rebound off its own missed free throw and throw the ball out of bounds on an inbounds play.
Ty Ger, the sole administrator of the Tiger Confessions Facebook page, started the page on Oct. 30 because they wanted to compliment someone anonymously. Since then, the culture of the page has changed significantly. Anonymous compliments about fellow Princetonians morphed into more serious confessions on topics such as eating disorders, mental health, and family problems.
This month, Google and the University will open their joint artificial intelligence (AI) lab at 1 Palmer Square, mere steps from Nassau Hall. Everyone who stands to benefit from the project — Princeton professors, Google officials, even New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy — has lauded the decision. By entangling scholarship with Google’s sponsorship, however, the University has failed to protect its professors from plausible ethical dilemmas.
Depending on how you feel about the transitive property, Princeton (7–5 overall, 0–0 Ivy) may have a claim to be the best team in the country. Saturday, the Tigers pulled off a stunning 67–66 upset against No. 17 Arizona State (9–3), who defeated No. 1 Kansas (11–1) in its previous game.
After only 30 percent of undergraduates participated in last week’s Undergraduate Student Government (USG) runoff elections, Zarnab Virk ’20 was elected USG president, and Heavyn Jennings ’20 was elected USG social chairperson.
Several hundred books on Firestone Library’s basement A floor suffered a watery fate Monday afternoon after a sprinkler flooded the library’s ground level Trustee Reading Room.
As the semester wound down (or, more fittingly, wound up) to a close, I could not help but feel tight-limbed, frustrated, and constantly in need of a nap. That third coffee hadn’t done anything but add a tremor to my fingers, the work hadn’t gotten any easier, I’d taken my third nap that day with no extra bursts of energy — and, gosh, that paper wasn’t going to write itself. My body was quite literally shutting down; I couldn’t keep my eyes open. What should I have done?
