I remember when I was at The Daily Princetonian’s pickups party a couple of months ago. There was tangible cheerfulness in the air; after all, everyone was excited to become a part of this grand organization — that is, until the editor-in-chief announced to us that journalism was not something that should be taken lightheartedly.
A common class schedule students will have, based on the structure of most University courses, is two 50-minute classes per day, Monday through Thursday. This schedule features two serious flaws: It creates barely usable downtime between classes, and it can cause organizational issues in regard to precepts. A solution to both problems would be the University offering more 100-minute courses that meet once a week so students could more often have just one 100-minute class per day.
Women’s basketball (2–7) hosts the Quinnipiac Bobcats on Saturday night at Jadwin Gymnasium. The Tigers are coming off a 65–57 victory over the Davidson Wildcats this past Sunday.
“A Star Is Born” is an emotional masterpiece. The film documents the tragic love story of Ally and Jack, two musicians played astoundingly by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Jack — an aging, severely depressed, hearing-impaired, washed-up, alcoholic rock star who dabbles in coke and pills when the booze can’t get the job done — meets Ally, a slightly younger, existentially restless waitress. They meet in a nondescript drag bar, where he is awestruck by Ally’s performance of a classic, playfully erotic French tune.
Men’s basketball (4–3 overall, 0–0 Ivy) was defeated by St. Joseph’s University (5–4) on Wednesday night, with a final score of 92–82. The Tigers, despite staying competitive for most of the first half and tying the score twice, never took the lead during the entire game.
A longstanding University policy limiting Uber, Lyft, and taxi access to campus is now being enforced, affecting countless students, staff, and faculty who rely on these ride services.
With only 52 current members, Charter Club has the smallest membership of any sign-in eating club. According to Charter president Conor O’Brien ’19, this has propelled rumors that the club may be on its way out.
“If anyone can win a national championship,” said freshman wrestler Patrick Glory, “it’s Matt.” Every collegiate ranking platform agrees. For junior Matthew Kolodzik, it’s non-negotiable: “I have to go out there and wrestle,” he says of the March national championship.
Often considered a key social hub of the University, Frist Campus Center is a place where students gather to do work, socialize, and enjoy themselves. But on Friday, Oct. 5, members of Turning Point USA (TPUSA) were the only ones who could truly say they were having a ball on Frist North Lawn.
While holidays mean, above all, food and family, trips home often carry the awkwardness and anxiety of reuniting with high school friends. These are the people you shared time and experiences and secrets with, but slowly the relationships drifted from weekly FaceTimes to intermittent texts to obligatory birthday calls. I often get the feeling that I should be so excited to see them again, but I can’t shake a worry that it won’t be what it used to be. While I jump at the opportunity to sit in my friend’s dorm and do nothing on a Tuesday night, it takes a pep talk to muster up the energy to hang out with high school friends the one night we’re all home.
Many of my friends from high school have lovingly graced my social media feeds with #StandUpToHarvard, campaigning to end Harvard’s rules affecting those who are a part of “unrecognized single-gender social organizations (USGSOs),” commonly Greek fraternities and sororities. Beginning with the class of 2021, undergraduates in USGSOs are barred from leadership roles in major clubs and sports, and, perhaps most discouraging, will not be endorsed by the school for prominent scholarships, like the Marshall and Rhodes scholarships. Lawsuits were filed Monday against Harvard on the federal level by Kappa Alpha Theta and Kappa Kappa Gamma, and on the state level by Alpha Phi and the Delta Gamma Fraternity Management Corporation, an Ohio-based group that supports the Delta Gamma sorority.
It was only fitting that President Christopher Eisgruber ’83 moderated what might safely be called the most contentious debate to ever rage within the Whig Hall Senate chamber. I refer, of course, to the Annual Latke-Hamentaschen Debate.

Late last night, The Daily Princetonian Editorial Board released an editorial in which it broke with tradition and decided not to endorse any specific candidate in the Undergraduate Student Government presidential election. By citing the relative similarity of the candidates’ platforms and the number of uncontested elections, the Board argues that this year’s USG winter elections are “without consequence.”
