Bicker week may be a thing of the past. The Interclub Council (ICC) is calling this winter’s new process Street week, hoping to “shift the language away from ‘bicker’ and towards a Street-wide admissions process,” according to ICC chair and Cloister Inn president Hannah Paynter ’19.
A few weeks ago, the Department of Education released a long-anticipated proposal for changing the regulations laid out in Title IX that allows lawyers to play a larger role in proceedings, which may deter victims from speaking out.
Last October, the University hosted its first ever iteration of the Hult Prize competition, an international startup challenge with a focus on solving pressing social issues. A group of four students entered the competition an hour before the deadline, simply because the competition needed another team. The team ended up doing so well that this year they will fly to Kenya to implement their plan.
Across the United States, the utility and worth of a college education is being called into question. The tangible gains that it may afford seem increasingly fleeting; as the prospects for sustaining what remains of the relative prosperity that accompanied America’s dominance after World War II fade and recede swiftly into a morass of political nonsense, young people are rendered more dependent on their families for longer periods and denied the opportunities that seemed so abundant to our parents. Some among the older generations blame us for this retrogression, while others recognize, to varying extents, the deeply rooted forces at play.
In his recent conversation with Professor Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor of the African-American Studies department, Ta-Nehisi Coates, an author and former national correspondent for The Atlantic, made a strong distinction between writing and activism.
As we dive into the final week of classes for 2018, the promise of winter break (and warmer weather for us Californians #westcoastbestcoast) shines at the end of this burnt-out and exhausted tunnel. With students grinding harder than ever to cushion their grades before the wrath of finals in January, it’s hard to find any red and green on this perpetually orange campus. Before you lock yourself in Firestone for the rest of the week, take some time to add a little holiday cheer to your routine and you might just find yourself cranking out that p-set to some Michael Bublé “Christmas.”
According to former Michigan gubernatorial candidate Dr. Abdul El-Sayed, individual moral leadership is increasingly important in a world that revolves around institutional validation.
In response to student questions, President Christopher Eisgruber ’83 again argued against “Ban the Box” initiatives at the Council of the Princeton University Community (CPUC) meeting.
Saturday evening, the Princeton women’s basketball team (3–7, 0–0) defeated the Quinnipiac Bobcats (4–5) in Jadwin Gymnasium, 54–42, to add another win to its non-conference schedule. Junior forward Bella Alarie, the 2018 Ivy League Player of the Year, made her comeback after an injury. Alarie scored 16 points, 19 rebounds, five blocks, two steals, and two assists during this game, solidifying the hashtag that the team’s Twitter account gave her, #BellaBuckets. This was Alarie’s 21st double-double in her career at Princeton. She is currently two double-doubles behind Ellen DeVoe and Margaret Meier for second place in Princeton’s record. Alarie was rewarded for her excellence on the court by being named Ivy League Player of the Week yesterday for the 10th time.

This past weekend, the women’s hockey team (9–2–3, 8–0–2 ECAC) traveled to play Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (6–9–4, 4–4–0) on Friday evening and Union (2–14–2, 0–7–1) on Saturday afternoon. The Tigers extended their unbeaten streak to 12 games with a 5–2 win on Friday and a 4–0 win on Saturday. These results saw No. 6 Princeton maintain its position atop the ECAC and its position in the USCHO national rankings. This 12-game streak ties the program record set in 2015–16 and is the highest in the country.
With the release of the dire new National Climate Assessment over Thanksgiving break and the beginning of COP24, the latest round of international climate negotiations, this week, the topic of environmental protection has never been more timely. Even on campus during the recent Undergraduate Student Government elections, many candidates stressed their commitment to sustainable practices, and I can attest to one Senate candidate’s giving me a detailed pitch as to just how he would revamp the University’s recycling program.
Last week, I noticed a giant Red Bull display in the Frist Campus Center C-Store that included the message: “Shaping up your GPA? Red Bull gives you wings.” This statement was accompanied by an image of a student papier-mâchéing essays and tests into the shape of an “A+” while drinking a Red Bull. I was shocked. Although the University claims to be committed to the mental and physical well-being of its students, one of its convenience stores clearly promotes unhealthy habits and unrealistic expectations.
I wish I could express to you how bad I am at dancing. I recently bragged to a friend of mine that someone had flatteringly told me that I “had moves.” He was stunned. “That’s a lie,” he said.
XXXTentacion, or X, the hugely popular and controversial rapper who was shot dead in Broward County, Fla., in June 2018 at the age of 20, has at once horrified and inspired millions of Americans.
