Despite the persistent advocacy of Students for Prison Education and Reform, the University has refused to “Ban the Box” — that is, eliminate a section on its application asking for prospective students’ criminal history. As SPEAR explained in The Daily Princetonian, students with criminal records are highly likely to experience rejection from institutions of higher education — and yet, paradoxically, access to higher education is critical to lessening recidivism.

It’s always difficult going into a game where the opponent is undefeated and highly ranked in the nation, which is what No. 16 Princeton women’s lacrosse team (5–3) discovered Wednesday night against No. 2 Maryland (11–0).

As I headed into this semester’s midterms, I tried to figure out how I was going to study for my four exams. The stress of the semester had culminated in the challenge of attempting to ready myself for my tests while keeping up with regular class work as well. Most of this semester has been triage, figuring out which assignment requires the most attention, resulting in others that aren’t completed to the best of my ability. I’ll be honest, time management has never been one of my strongest skills. Knowing that, I booked a McGraw Center appointment to try and navigate the nightmare that is a Princeton B.S.E. schedule. Even after a productive meeting, I realized something extremely important. It’s impossible to manage time that doesn’t exist.
By some measures, interdisciplinarity seems to have gained a central place in our undergraduate education here at Princeton. Some courses, like “Computer Science: An Interdisciplinary Approach” or “Interdisciplinary Design Studio” are explicitly termed cross-disciplinary. Others are given cross-listed course designations: to take an arbitrary random sample of non-language and non-writing seminar classes offered on Thursdays this semester at 11 a.m., 44 of 80 are cross listed between any number of other departments.
Men’s lacrosse (3–5, 0–2 Ivy) defeated University of Denver (5–3) 14–13 in a nail-biter on Tuesday evening. The Tigers pulled ahead early in the game at Sherrerd Field, fell behind, and came back to secure victory against the Pioneers.

Princeton softball (5–13, 2–1 Ivy) opened the Ivy League season this weekend with a 2–1 series win against Yale (8–14, 3–3), a solid start for a team that has already experienced plenty of ups and downs throughout the early part of the season. The Tigers began the series with a resounding 8–0 victory on Saturday, which saw five players record multi-hit games, including a four RBI performance from senior infielder Kaylee Grant. Sophomore pitcher Allie Reynolds pitched five shutout innings, giving up just three hits and striking out three. Reynolds, who leads the Tigers in innings pitched and is tied for first in starts, figures to play a major role for the team as it begins the Ivy League season. Last year, Reynolds threw 125 ⅓ of the team’s 246 ⅔ innings, and her role will only increase this season as she has emerged as the unequivocal leader of the pitching staff.
“Inside the Orange Bubble [of the University] is not necessarily the best place to cover international events,” said Joe Stephens, as he opened for the panelists during Session IX of the Mellon-Sawyer Journalism Seminar Series.
