On April 4, the Wilson School and Campus Iconography Committee co-hosted the public lecture “Reflecting on Our Past: The Value of Public Art,” in which landscape architect and UC Berkeley professor Walter Hood introduced a new art piece, “Double Consciousness,” to be installed in Scudder Plaza, adjacent to the Wilson School. Hood hopes the piece will reflect both the positive and negative aspects of Woodrow Wilson’s legacy.
The Center for Jewish Life (CJL) is proud to host Israel Shabbat, which celebrates Israel’s existence as a Jewish and democratic state. We will celebrate Israeli culture through food and a performance by Joel Chasnoff, an Israeli comedian who will share his humorous take on the experience of immigrating to Israel from the United States. There will be a discussion session during dinner led by Ambassador Daniel Kurtzer, and students will share their experiences from two CJL-sponsored trips to Israel and the West Bank over winter break. Through our wide range of thoughtful and nuanced Israel-related programs, the CJL embraces the diversity of opinions that members of our community have about Israeli politics. We look forward to welcoming the entire campus community on Friday night.

We, the Alliance of Jewish Progressives and those undersigned, call upon the Princeton community to abstain from attending the Center for Jewish Life (CJL)’s “Israel Shabbat” this Friday evening, hosted in partnership with Tigers for Israel (TFI). This event, which fails to reckon with the nuances of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, is deeply hurtful and exclusionary to members of the Princeton Jewish and broader campus communities.
Campus Dining Services hosted its fourth annual Tiger Chef Challenge competition on Wednesday, April 3, featuring students from each of the six undergraduate residential colleges.
As winter turns to spring, both the weather and the 2020 Democratic Presidential Primary are heating up. Whether it be Whig-Clio debates, Princeton College Democrats meetings, or The Daily Princetonian pieces, it feels as if the campus gaze has skipped right past 2019 and into the heart of the primaries and caucuses that await us next year.
It’s 2019. Whitewashing, tacky “Oriental” costumes, and the fetishization of Asian women just aren’t trendy anymore like they might have been back in the good ol’ days. But it seems like Princeton High School didn’t get the memo.

Sailer congratulated her former player for her accomplishments with the Villanova Wildcats.
It’s easy to say “equal pay for equal work.” The fact of the matter is that neither the work, nor the product of that work, is equal in U.S. Soccer. The women’s team plays more games, and wins more games (including more World Cups and Olympic championships), than the men’s team. Yet, the women’s national soccer team is paid far less for its victories.
